    The life of the business is broken up into arbitrary periods for the purpose of measuring profit.

    The accounting period is usually a 12 month period for accurate reporting of financial position (profit/loss or equity value). In the U.S. a 12 month period is utilized to coincide with the tax reporting requirements. A short-year may be done if the business is sold or you may for your own business "forecast" use an arbitrary period. Banks want financial reports usually for a full year also.
