Accounting is a system for developing and communicating information needed for economic decision-making. Accounting is often termed “the language of business.” Its purpose is to provide decision makers with information regarding the economic status and activity of individuals, business organizations and government agencies. In business, accounting information is used for investment decisions, evaluating management, negotiation with management and levying taxes.
