What is accounting?
Accounting refers to the systematic process of maintaining financial accounts. Businesses need to know whether they are making a profit or loss. Accountancy involves tracking how much a business makes as well as how much they spend. It helps businesses understand the financial health of the company. This will help the company to make decisions on the direction that the company should take next.
Is a Diploma in Accountancy right for you?
Accountancy may be right for you if you love concrete data, problem solving and routines. It is a financial role that does not require speculation and risk taking. Accountancy is also a career that requires mathematics and using numbers to make inferences.
A Diploma in Accountancy course typically gives you the foundation of laws that govern businesses, the ethics of accountancy, statistics as well as accounting theory. You will learn how to prepare documents such as financial statements, and tax returns. You will also learn how to record finances, as well as to sort, retrieve and summarize information from financial reports and analyses.
