Current-Value Accounting II—Methods

  • Robert W. Scapens
Part of the Studies in Finance and Accounting book series


In the previous chapter the concepts of current-value accounting were discussed; this chapter contains illustrations of their application. Initially references will be made to the current values of assets, without distinguishing between entry and exit values. This approach will give the illustrations more generality. However, when methods of current-cost accounting are introduced it will be necessary to define the concept of current value more precisely.
