Course 2: Introduction to Accounting - 1

How will it empower you: Accounting is the foundation on which individuals, organizations and societies build economic activities. The foundation of a house lacks the glamour of the drawing room, but it is indispensable for the safety of the structure and of its occupants. Much the same way, successful economies and societies are built on good accounting. Credible financial reporting encourages people to save and invest. Accountants are like anaesthetists - hardly seen or remembered by the patient but key members of the surgical team. Accounting is often confused with bookkeeping, a small part of accounting. Accounting is really about measuring economic activities and organizing and presenting information about those activities. A good knowledge of accounting helps us to design accounting systems and prepare financial statements, budgets, cost statements, and tax returns. Formulating and executing government policies requires reliable and timely information that comes from robust accounting systems. Accounting strengthens the accountability of individuals, organizations and societies. It is an important part of a country's economic, social and political institutions.
