  • Going concern concept – the principle that financial statements are normally prepared on the basis that the entity is a going concern and will continue in operation for the foreseeable future unless it is known otherwise

–     Assumed that the entity is not intending to close down or significantly reduce its activities. If that presumption is not valid, the financial statements must show the assets of the business at their break-up value and any liabilities that are applicable on liquidation
