Illustrative Chart of Accounts
The Illustrative Chart of Accounts is a comprehensive document: it includes categories used by both the successful efforts and full cost methods of accounting. Accounts unique to successful efforts companies are noted by an SE in the left margin, while FC denotes accounts unique to full cost companies. Figure 4-3 located in Chapter 4 presents a condensed version of this chart.
