Features - The CPA Journal Millennium Series - Probability and Materiality - The relationship between probability and materiality is described so imprecisely in U.S. and international standards that applying a consistent treatment is virtually impossible. The authors propose building a likelihood dimension into accounting guidance that can form a basis for international convergence.
