Why we reverse provision of bed debts at the openning of the year. For example, At the year end, provision is 1000, debtors are 20000, we write off provision from debtors and closing balance of debtors are 20000-1000=19000 which is shown in the balance sheet. At th start of openning of a new year, provisions are add back and the balance sheet contains debtor balalanc which is 19000+1000=20000. why is happened. Tell me the solid reason according to IAS

<b>Materialily</b>
Materiality refers to the significance or importance of an event,transaction and amount and their influence on the overall financial position of company.

Materiality concept is very important for tracing an asset. For instance if a small machinery is purchased for Rs.5000/- by a small company shall be treated as asset but if the same machinery is purchased by a large organization then it shall be treated as expense.

Materiality means the significant or degree of influence of a transaction on the financial position of a company.


<b>Consideration</b>
Consideration is an incentive that a receipient of goods or services give to person from whom he receives this goods or services. A consideration may be in cash or in kind or in shape of services.

<b>Example</b>
you purchase a house for Rs.200,000/- the amount 200,000/- that you will pay shall be treated as consideration. If you give the land in return of house then it will be alos consideration. If you provide employment services to the seller for one year for the value of house it will also be consideration.


<b>Going Concern</b>

It is the basic principle of accounting . Going concern is defined in the framework of IAS.

Going concern means that a business neither have intenssion nor need to wind up in foreseeable future.

you have seen that asset are shown in balance sheet at book value rather than at value at which they can be sold. It is because of the fact that a business has not intenssion to wind up.

Actually no fixed quantity of closing stock is maintained but it is presumed/forecasted or budgeted to complete process of making production budget. Many cost accounting functions work like mathematical equation for instance you can determine the CGS with some known figures and some unavailable figures. Simmilarly while making Production budget with the known balance of opening stock,budgeted sales and required or desired closing stock it is determined how much quantity of an inventory item should be produced.

Production budget will be used to propose how much quantity you will manufacture so that you can compensate for the demand (identified on your sales budget).

For any query feel free to contact me.
