Much has been written about the economic and political problems of countries
that are in the process of changing from centrally planned systems to market
systems. Most studies have focused on the economic, legal, political and
sociological problems these economies have had to face during the transition
period. However, not much has been written about the dramatic changes that
have to be made to the accounting and financial system of a transition
economy. This book was written to help fill that gap....

When a consumer applies for employment, or for a service that reviews credit histories,
(such as insurance, an apartment rental, utilities, cell phone accounts) these data users
may also request and receive a credit report and/or scores from one or more repositories,
to be used to evaluate the consumer’ s application.
In the future, the domestic voluntary carbon offset market may be largely superseded by a
mandatory U.S. trading program for greenhouse gas emissions. Even if it is, there may be
grounds for government oversight of the voluntary market today. Oversight may be
desirable, for example, to protect consumers and the public interest, to allow learning for
regulators, and to provide greater certainty for investors.
Not-for-profit organizations and governmental organizations operate under somewhat different bases of
accounting. Generally, not-for-profit organizations are required to use accrual accounting while
governmental organizations are required to use modified accrual accounting for governmental funds and
accrual accounting for proprietary funds.
The accrual basis of accounting recognizes revenues in the accounting period in which they are earned
and become measurable. Expenses should be recognized in the period incurred, if measurable.
The basis period rules to be applied to your share of the partnership’s
non-trading or professional income are described below.
If the partnership carried on a trade or profession in 2011–12 then the basis
period will depend on whether tax has been deducted from that income.
Your share of the partnership’s non-trading or professional income from
which no UK tax has been deducted, ‘untaxed income’, is treated as having
been derived from a ‘notional’ business which you carried on alone.
To strengthen the regulatory arrangements essential for the successful
implementation of international standards, countries should give greater attention
to regulatory preconditions. The relevant international organizations should work
together to develop a consensus on a comprehensive framework of principles for the
regulation of accounting and auditing, and to support the adoption of such a
framework by the competent national authorities.

In this manual, we describe a generic accounting system specifically designed for the needs of
state humanities councils. Although not mandatory, the adoption ofthis system would be
beneficial to council fiscal personnel by enabling the data needed for the Federal Cash Transactions Report and the Financial Status Report to be readily abstracted from the general
ledger and the books of original entry. This manual also contains a sample Gifts and Matching
JOlm1al, sample worksheets, and memorandum accounts that can serve as an audit trail for gift
certification letters to the NEH.

For Anthony (1990), implementing a
control system in an organisation is justified on account of its being the only process through which
company management ensures that the organisation’s objectives are achieved and employed most
effectively. Simons (1995) and Merchant (1982) defend the use of control systems as mechanisms for
managing organisational change.
The accounting information system is the information system par excellence, since it can be
designed to obtain objective (Hopwood, 1972) and quantifiable information (Emmanuel et al., 1985) at
all organisational levels. Out of all the accounting control systems, management control research has
progressively focused on budgeting as the key system (Birnberg et al. 1983) and because it is the most
regularly used for organisational management control (Caplan, 1971).
