Business / Taxes / Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB): The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) is an independent, self-regulatory board that establishes and interprets generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). It operates under the principle that the economy and the financial services industry work smoothly when credible, concise, and clear financial information is available. FASB periodically revises its rules to make sure corporations are following its principles. The corporations are supposed to fully account for different kinds of income, avoid shifting income from one period to another, and properly categorize their income.
