Accounting Systems

An accounting system helps capture and organize information related to business transactions. Depending upon the focus it can be divided into two types:

a) Accounting and

b) Managerial Accounting.

A Financial Accounting system contains financial statements and disclosures meant for decision makers external to the company. A Managerial Accounting system contains detailed plans and performance reports meant for decision makers within the company.

Financial Accounting Systems

A financial accounting system is a system that serves the dual purpose of keeping track of transaction information and helping organize and evaluate this information primarily meant for external decision makers.

It would make it too difficult for them to wade through so many different transactions to figure out how the company was doing. Hence, financial statements are created from the recorded transactions so as to summarize all transactions in a few well-known heads of accounts to easily read the information and make
