You are a business consultant providing information and advice to future small business owners. One difficult concept for your clients to understand is the concept of economic substance. Accountants do not base the recognition of revenues and expenses on the income statement on the collection of cash or on the disbursement of cash. Revenues and expenses are recognized when the economic substance of the transaction has taken place. Create a PowerPoint presentation for a seminar aimed at future business owners. Explain the meaning and importance of economic substance and how it relates to the financial statements.
