About

Financial accounting is called the “language of business,” and for good reasons. An examination of a firm’s financial statements - which reflect the company’s performance - reveals a wealth of information about its history, current financial health, and future potential. This is why business leaders use accounting to communicate their organization’s financial information to potential investors, shareholders, lenders, and regulators. Financial accounting allows an organization’s leaders to make sound business decisions and helps investors better understand company value.
