Revenue and expense recognition important to financial reporting?
Weegy: The revenue recognition principle makes it so that the revenue a company earns is recorded in the same accounting period in which the product or service was sold. The expense recognition principle says that the expense will follow the revenue. [ Basically, whatever money was spent in producing the revenue will be accounted for in the same period as the revenue earned. Most argue that the principles, if followed, will show a more accurate state of being for the company. Others argue that it makes the statements harder to read and that cash basis accounting is better. ] (More)

What are deferrals? What are some examples of deferrals? Why do deferrals require adjusting entries?
Weegy: Deferrals Deferrals or deferral-type adjusting entries can pertain to both expenses and revenues and refer to the second scenario mentioned in the introduction to this topic: Something has already been entered in the accounting records, [ but the amount needs to be divided up between two or more accounting periods. Deferral of Expenses An accountant might say, "We need to defer some of the insurance expense." That statement is made because the company may have paid on December 1 the entire bill for the insurance coverage for the six-month period of December 1 through May 31. However, as of December 31 only one month of the insurance is used up. Hence the cost of the remaining five months is deferred to the balance sheet account Prepaid Insurance until it is moved to Insurance Expense during the months of January through May. If the company prepares monthly financial statements, a deferral-type adjusting entry may be needed each month in order to move one-sixth of the six-month cost from the asset account Prepaid Insurance to the income statement account Insurance Expense. ] (More)
