About Financial Accounting


Financial accounting is the branch of accounting that keeps track of a company’s financial transactions resulting from business operations. These are presented in the form of financial reports or statements such as Profit & Loss Account, Trail Balance or Balance Sheets. These reports are used to inform outside stakeholders such as investors, creditors and tax authorities to understand the company’s business performance.
