Accountancy is a practical subject that inculcates various processes such as identifying, measuring, recording, classifying, verifying, interpreting, summarizing and communicating financial data. Accounting is crucial as it plays a significant role at the center of every organisation. Any business be it of public sector, private sector or even non-profit is impossible to operate without proper accounting. The information acquired from accounting is not only used to keep a check on profits, losses or on cash but also for forecasting future financial development, examining different areas of business and evaluating business potential.
