APB opinion business definition
A determination by the former Accounting Principles Board regarding the way a certain financial transaction is to be treated for reporting purposes. For example, APB Opinion 15 sets forth the ways in which convertible issues and common-stock equivalents are to be used in calculating earnings per share. In 1973 the Accounting Principles Board was superseded by the Financial Accounting Standards Board, thereby halting further APB opinions and initiating FASB statements.
