What is accounting?

Accounting is often called the language of the business. Accounting is a system for the delivery of financial information. It involves the recording of transactions and preparation of the financial statements, along with financial statement analysis regarding financial health of firms. Accountants are tasked with ensuring that events have been accurately recorded and that the financial statements accurately reflect the financial condition of the business.
