Accounting and Finance
Business accounting is the systematic recording, analyzing, interpreting and presenting of financial information. Accounting may be done by one person in a small business, or by different teams in large organizations. Accounting is the way a business keeps track of its operations. Accountants analyze the business finances so the owner can make better decisions. This information is organized into reports that show the financial health of a business. Accounting helps business owners meet their compliance obligations. It also helps them make smart decisions with their money.
