ACCOUNTING RESEARCH BULLETINS (ARBs) were issued years ago to set generally
accepted accounting principles. Some have not been superseded by pronouncements of the Financial Accounting Standards Board. Those old pronouncements still qualify as generally accepted accounting principles.
CORE BUSINESS is the sector(s) of business activity that is the reason or purpose for being, e.g. providing communications services within a telephone company would be considered core, while real estate holdings and the securities investment portfolio will likely be considered non-core business activities.
PAYMENT TERMS is the legal or contractual stipulation by a business as to when payment is to be made for goods or services supplied, e.g. cash with order, payment on delivery, or within a particular number of days of the invoice date.
