Accounting is a rule-driven discipline for recording and presenting financial data and information about the company. Its scope includes all data concerning the corporate activities, including analyses of supply, production and distribution flows. It involves collecting, organising, comparing and checking all this data produced by everyday management. Accounting extends to many areas connected with the company's management.

At the helm of the company

Accounting is not only a legal obligation for any company; it is also essential to its guidance, since it constitutes the foundation for carrying out the analyses used in strategic and operational decision-making. One of accounting's deliverables are the corporate annual accounts.

Entering accounting operations, analysing financial data, closing transactions and cash-flow management constitute the common denominator of all accounting functions. While in small structures accountants may also act as management controller and treasurer, these professional profiles are tending to become more specialised in larger companies. As a result, the professional profiles may coexist but require separate skills. 

For accounting to be reliable and reflect the reality of the company as well as comply with the legal framework, it must be in the hands of competent people. Corporate accountant, management controller and treasurer are the professional profiles in this area of expertise in figures.
