Accounting is the study of how an enterprise recognizes income and assets in a certain business cycle. In addition to preparing financial statements and recording corporate transactions, accountants are more important to participate in mergers between companies, quality management, the application of information technology in finance, taxation strategies, and management decision-making activities of many companies.
