Here, although the transaction is recorded at the right place but the amount is not right.
  • Error of Principle: Errors of Principle when any of the accounting principles is violated while entering the transaction. For Example- Paid $ 40 for the repair of an old machinery debited to Machinery A/c. Here, repair is a revenue item (recurring expense) but is wrongly treated as a capital item and violates the accounting principle.
