what is going concern assumption?
Going concern assumption: An accounting guideline which allows the readers of financial statements to assume that the company will continue on long enough to carry out its objectives and commitments. [ In other words, the accountants believe that the company will not liquidate in the near future. This assumption also provides some justification for accountants to follow the cost principle. ]
