Description

Description:
Governmental accounting is different from commercial accounting. Governmental entities use a fund-based accounting system in which some of the funds use a modified-accrual accounting method as opposed to the accrual method used by commercial entities. Also, the financial statements of governmental entities have a foundation in the individual funds but aggregate to a government-wide level.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to apply the general principles underlying the government accounting standards, demonstrate the basis of accounting used by governments and how fund accounting is used to report the difference programs and activities of the government. You will also be able to identify the financial statements, disclosures, and supplementary information typically reported in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. Sample statements are provided to enhance your knowledge of the relationships between the statements.
