The influence of the work of Luca Pacioli on the development of accounting in our country
Vliv díla Luca Pacioliho na vývoj účetnictví na našem území
Český finanční a účetní časopis, 2019, vol. 2019, issue 3, 5-16
The publication of Luca Pacioli's work in 1494 caused the turning point in the development of double-entry bookkeeping and supported its expansion from Italy to other European countries. The article takes into account the research on this topic and seeks parallels between development in the Czech lands and Western Europe in the early period of accounting history. Based on the heuristic research and regressive criticism of sources preserved in the Czech archives and libraries, the article claims that there are no evidences about the expansion of Paciolio's work or other prints on double-entry bookkeeping in the Czech lands, similar manuals published in the same period in our territory described another accounting system and there are also no proofs of using of double-entry bookkeeping in the real accounting practice. The pilot comparison with Poland showed similarities, suggesting an analogous development in the Central European area against to the countries of Western Europe.
