Sample Book Insights:
#1 Every accounting story is told from the point of view of a business entity. The business entity is separate from its owner. The owner and the entity are never the same.
#2 The separate entity concept is so important that it has a symbol. The pineapple symbol stands for it, and you should always remember to check your point of view.
#3 The purpose of accounting is to provide useful information for decision-making. To do this, the accountant sorts and groups similar assets and debts into groups, and then measures them. Data becomes information as long as you can understand the language.
#4 When reading financial statements, you should be asking yourself a variety of questions, such as: What is the company’s growth rate. How much of the company’s assets did it have to consume in order to grow them.
