Accounting Measurement

Accounting Measurement

A unit of accounting. Very often, an accounting measurement is a unit of money. For example, if a company records its sales for a month as $25,000, its accounting measurement is U.S. dollars. However, an accounting measurement may also be a non-monetary unit, such as hours worked or jobs created.
