Customized Reports and Databases

There are two types of accounting in companies; Management Accounting and Financial Accounting. Management accounting provides information to people within an organization while financial accounting is mainly for those outside it, such as shareholders, banks and creditors.

Financial Accounting is required by law while management accounting is not. Specific standards and formats may be required for statutory accounts such as International Financial Reporting Standards. Financial Accounting covers the entire organization while Management Accounting may be concerned with particular products or cost centers. Managerial Accounting is used primarily by those within a company or organization. Reports can be generated for any period of time such as daily, weekly or monthly. Reports are considered to be "future looking" and have forecasting value to those within the company.

Financial Accounting is used primarily by those outside of a company or organization. Financial reports are usually created for a set period of time, such as a fiscal year or period. Financial reports are historically factual and have predictive value to those who wish to make financial decisions or investments in a company. Management Accounting is the branch of accounting that deals primarily with confidential financial reports for the exclusive use of management within an organization. These reports are prepared utilizing scientific and statistical methods to arrive at certain monetary values which are then used for decision making. Such reports may include:
  • Sales Forecasting reports
  • Budget analysis and comparative analysis
  • Feasibility studies
  • Merger and consolidation reports
Financial Accounting, on the other hand, concentrates on the production of financial reports, including the basic reporting requirements of profitability, liquidity, solvency and stability. Reports of this nature can be accessed by internal and external users such as the shareholders, the banks and the creditors.[1]

We specialize in making sure that you have the right information for your taxes, banks, and creditors as well as what you need on a daily basis to make the right decisions in your company.
