Why have the potential for misleading financial statements during the period of price changes?

During periods of inflation, asset values go down by the cost of initial acquisition reflects its current value (which is more Cleaner). Diyatakan asset values lower yield lower rated load and rated higher profits. From the management point of view, this inaccuracy distorts, (1) financial projections based on historical time data, (2) the budget is the basis of performance measurement, and (3) performance data can not isolate the effect of inflation that can not be controlled. It creates a profit:
• An increase in the proportion of tax
• Request for more dividends of shareholders
• Request and pay higher wages than workers
• Actions that harm from the host country
And if the company has distributed its profits then most likely the company can not do the replacement of certain assets has increased the price because they lack resources.
Financial statements are not adjusted to purchasing power will also affect the readers of financial statements in interpreting and comparing the operating performance of the company. If revenues are recorded in accordance with the present value of purchasing power, while the cost of purchasing power are recorded at historical earnings will make measurements inaccurate. Konvensioanal accounting procedures also ignore the purchasing power gains and losses arising from cash holdings during the period of inflation.

Inflation Accounting terms
Inflation is a process of rising prices in general and persistent (continuous) associated with the market mechanism can be caused by various factors, among others, increased consumption or a lack of launch distribution of goods. In other words, inflation is also a process of declining currency value continuously. Inflation is the process of an event, rather than the high-low price levels.
Accounting methods used in the method of determination of inflation = profits. The emphasis is on the determination of the profits return more relevant is illustrated by the financial statements, while the inflation value of all items contained in the financial statements. To prepare financial statements in the period of inflation to be more relevant to use several methods.
According to Johnson, the 1977 method of measurement of assets and liabilities can be divided as follows:
1. The entry value of the common price system consisting of:

Historical cost
General price level

In the method for example GPL historical cost method adjusted for changes in price levels during inflation so that the GPL is greater than the value of historical cost.
GPLA advantages are:
a. May explain the effect of inflation on the company.
b. Improve the usefulness of comparative reports between periods.
c. Help users assess the statement of cash flows to be dating ddimasa better.
d. Improve the confidence level of financial statement ratios are calculated from
the figures that have been customized financial reports.

The disadvantage is:
a. Inflation was terrjadi on different goods and different companies, so it can not be generalized.
b. GPLA not significant for the company.
c. Figures are not adjusted to describe the cash flow.
d. It is a crude indicator ratios.

Replacement cost
Is the value measured at this time to get new assets or replace it with the same production capacity. Depreciation is calculated based on the value of changing it. On the value of the replacement value of inflation is greater than the general price level. This method is widely criticized, but some people think that this method is the easiest method is applied in accounting for inflation

Reproduction cost
Is another term that is almost equal to the replacement cost. Here the price is measured based on the current price if the asset was created or published as what belongs to it without looking at the technological changes that made it possible mempengaruhiaktiva.

2. The exit value or current market pricing system that consists of market value:

Net realizable value
NRV is the estimated selling price less selling costs. Depreciation is calculated on the difference between the asset’s sale price at the beginning than at the end of the period.

Selling price
selling price less cost of sales so that no financial statements prepared according to the selling price will be greater than the net realizable value and the other methods mentioned earlier.

Expected value
This method is highly dependent on one’s expectations can be larger or smaller than other methods because the expected value is an overview of the present value of cash in the future.

9. Restated amounts of non-monetary items is reduced, in accordance with relevant GAAP, when the amount exceeds the recoverable amount.
