Inflation Accounting
Concept of Inflation Accounting:
Inflation normally refers to the increasing trend ingeneral price level. In other words, it is a state inwhich the purchasing power of money goes down.Inflation Accounting is a system of accountingwhich shows the effect of changing costs andprices on affairs of a business unit during anaccounting year.While the cost in the traditional accounting refers tothe historical cost, in inflation accounting itrepresents the cost that prevails at the time of reporting.
Why Inflation Accounting?
In the traditional accounting, assets are shown athistorical cost, year after year.During the inflationary period, historical cost baseddepreciation would be highly insufficient to replacethe existing assets at current cost. Moreover currentrevenues for the period are not properly matchedwith the current cost of operation.Thus, the problems created by price changes in thehistorical cost based accounts necessitated somemethod to take care of inflation into the accountingsystem.
