What is Financial Accounting?

Financial accounting theory explains the “why” of accounting, in particular, the reasons why transactions are recorded and presented the way they are. An accountant must be familiar with how to record journal entries, differentiate all the common accounts used by businesses, understand how financial statements are created, as well as how to accurately compute debit and credit amounts for each account. Financial accounting is about reporting a company’s financial transactions to outside stakeholders including investors and lenders. This section has multiple Financial Accounting Templates that will save you time on your job.

What is Managerial Accounting?

Managerial accounting (a.k.a. cost accounting) is a type of accounting focused on identifying, measuring, analyzing, and interpreting accounting information for internal decision making by the management team of a business.
