IAS 69: Accounting for Girlfriends

The objective of IAS 69 is to prescribe the accounting treatment for girlfriends. The principal issues are the timing of recognition of a female friend as a girlfriend, the number of days the relationship can be carried on and any write down in this romantic relationship. It also provides guidance on the methods to be employed to make girlfriend.

This IAS applies to all girlfriends except those whose father, brother, ex-boyfriends or prospective boyfriends are working in police, army, intelligence agencies or political organizations or six feet tall, have muscular body and know kung fu, judo or any other marshal art.

The following terms are used in this Standard with the meanings specified:

LOVE is a serious mental disease, mostly found in old Indian movies, dramas and Shakespearean literature.
FLIRTING is the modern form of love; this disease came from Hollywood movies, new Indian movies, internet, mobile phones, and English literature.
MARRIAGE is a long term liability as a result of PAST events that is expected to be settled by increasing the population, decreasing the health and money.
GIRL FRIEND is a current asset as a result of past efforts and events that is probable to generate future dates, physical contact and gifts. If not properly handled may become long-term liability i.e. wife.
BOYFRIEND-SPECIFIC VALUE is the present value of the future dates that a boyfriend expects to realize from continuing use of the girlfriend over its useful life and from its disposal to his another friend at the end of the flirting term.
FLIRTING TERM is the higher of the following:
-from your first conversation till the time the girlfriend father catches you
-from the time of your first date till your girlfriend get married with another person ,in which case she will become your ex-girlfriend
-from the time of your first date till you get married with your girlfriend, afterward it will become a suffering term.


A girl shall be recognized as a girl friend if, and only if:
(a) it is probable that future physical benefits associated with the girlfriend will flow to the boyfriend,
