These are assumptions, the users of financial statements take for granted. As long as financial statements are prepared in accordance with these assumptions, no separate disclosure in financial statements would be necessary.


There are three fundamental accounting assumptions:

(i) Going Concern

(ii) Consistency

(iii) Accrual

If nothing has been written about the fundamental accounting assumption in the financial statements then it is assumed that they have already been followed in their preparation of financial statements. However, if any of the above mentioned fundamental accounting assumption is not followed then this fact should be specifically disclosed.
