Financial Statement II (With Adjustments)

  1. Needs for Adjustments in Preparing the Final Accounts

The purpose of making various adjustments is to ensure that the final accounts must reveal the true profit or loss and true financial position of the business.

  1. It helps us to record those adjustment which were left or committed and were not recorded in the accounts.
  2. A proper recording of adjusting entries assists us to separate all the financial transactions into a year-wise category.
