A positive law is an act imposed or enacted by a sovereign authority. It lacks the moral force of natural law. Positive law differs from natural law in several ways. In one sense, it is morally indifferent; in another, it is morally adventitious. It also lacks the intrinsic value of a law.
In contrast, a natural-law norm, such as “you shall not kill,” does not require a sovereign imposition. On the other hand, a positive law, such as “you shall not speed,” requires the imposition of a sovereign.
In accounting, a law’s effects should be recognized in the period it takes effect, starting with its enactment date. This date is not always known, but generally occurs after the law has completed the full legislative process. Enactment occurs when the President signs a bill into law, although it can occur in other ways. The important concept of enactment is that the legislative process is complete. This means that future rates may not be known, and so they should not be recognized.
