Computerized Accounting I

What is Computerized Accounting I?

Bookkeeping is accounting. So is balancing your checkbook. But accounting is also a good deal more than that. Accounting is tracking (accounting for) all of your assets, not just the cash. In the business world, accounting tells companies how much they need to charge for their products so they will make a profit. Accounting warns a company that its profits are slipping. Accounting makes sure the right people get billed the correct amount at the proper time and are credited for their payments accurately. Or, more importantly to most of us, accounting makes sure everybody gets paid for the correct amount on payday, every payday! Accounting makes sure public records are accurately kept. It helps individuals and companies pay their taxes properly. It shows companies what they are doing with their money so they can find better ways to use it. It also shows investigators that crimes are being committed and by whom. With the development of computers and software, the ability to collect and manipulate financial data has made accounting easier and more useful than ever. Computerized accounting is the study of basic accounting principles, methods and technologies as they apply to specific, on-the-job, records-keeping practices.

Success Factors

To succeed in accounting, you should have an aptitude for mathematics and be able to analyze, compare and interpret facts and figures quickly.
