Accounting for Managers
There is a problem in this area; when prices are not constant the usage of the historic cost can mean that the asset values used when preparing final accounts might be quite different to current market values and hence a misleading picture of the business is provided. Proposals for moving away from the cost concept, as many preparers or users of financial statements are not entirely satisfied with historical cost accounting, to some form of market valuation basis have been made and experimented with over the years, but the historical cost concept still predominates.
