Unformatted text preview: 9 Chapter Business-Type Activities TRUE/FALSE (CHAPTER 9) 1. In both the fund statements and the government-wide statements, business- type activities and internal service funds are on a full accrual basis, and their measurement focus is on all economic resources. The operating statement required as one of the three basic financial statements for proprietary funds is called the statement of revenues, expenditures, and changes in fund net assets. The amounts reported in proprietary fund statements are generally the same as those reported in the government-wide statements because both sets of statements are on a full accrual basis of accounting. Governments are required to prepare a statement of cash flows for proprietary funds, but not for governmental funds.
