The accounting principles consist of both concepts and conventions. Among different conventions, the disclosure convention is the most important one. The information should be presented in such a manner that it can be easily understood by a person of average knowledge and prudence. The Company Act 1956 not only requires that Income Statement and Balance Sheet of a company must give prescribed forms in which these statements are to be prepared. In recent years, many business enterprises have broadened the scope of their activities to different industries foreign counties and market. Due to the growth of diversified business and expansion of firms into foreign market, consolidated information becomes non-homogeneous information. The problems of disclosure can be resolved in the light of the objectives of financing reporting. The methods of disclosure include Income Statement, balance Sheet, Statement of Retained earnings, and Funds Flow statement.
