Financial Accounting MCQs /page 3

16.    X Ltd., purchased goods for ' 5 lakh and sold 9/10th  of the value of goods for ' 6 lakh. Net expenses during the year were ' 25, 000. The company reported its net profit as ' 75,000. Which of the following concept is violated by the company?
(a)   Realization
(b)  Conservation
(c)   Matching

(d)  Accrual
[Hints: (c) Matching concept requires the expenses must relate to the goods and services sold during that period to arrive at the net profits of the enterprise. Hence matching   concept   requires   the   recognition   of   revenue   and   expenses   on   a comparable basis. In the above question that amount of ' 75,000 as net profit was arrived at by deducting ' 5,00,000 ( being cost of purchases ) + ' 25,000 expenses from the sale proceeds of ' 6,00,000. This does not follow matching concept since the cost of goods sold is to be deducted and not the cost of purchases, since some purchases have been left in stock. So the net profit using matching concept is '
6,00,000 less cost of goods ' 4,50,000 (i.e. ' 5,00,000 x 9/10) less expenses of ' 25,000 =
' 1,25,000.]
