This paper reviews the possibility of using the methods of formal logic in the professional judgements taken by accountants, and in accounting regulations as a special type of professional judgements made on behalf of the entire accounting community. It contemplates the possibility and the process of using Michael Psellos's square of oppositions to verify an accountant's professional judgement and correctness of certain regulations. It uses the following examples of judgement verification: asset capitalization, recognition of property on or off balance sheet, classification of assets as current or non-current. An analysis of the application of the square of oppositions proved its efficiency for verification of professional judgements, primarily the judgements concerning capitalization of business events and their classification for the purpose of financial statements.
