Accounting is the process of sending financial information about a business to users or entities such as shareholders, creditors (including banks or retailers), financial analysts, economists, and government agencies. Accounting can be divided into two main categories: Accounting and financial management. Accounting managers focus on reporting to people within the business and provide information to employees, managers, owners, managers and auditors. The ultimate goal is to provide managers with the basis for making major decisions related to management and operations. Finance teaches you about insurance, managing money, banking and financial operations and public institutions.
