What is the periodicity assumption in relation to financial reporting?
The periodicity assumption means that a company’s economic activities can be divided into relevant reporting periods. For example, it is assumed that any company with solid financial reporting period can show the results of the business on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. The financial statements should contain specific reference to the date or time period the financial schedule covers (i.e. Year 1 or December 31, Year 1).
