Most people probably know about accounting primarily from their work on returns during tax season. But accountants do so much more - they prepare and examine financial records, ensure financial statements comply with laws and regulations, supervise business transactions and manage assets, and advise on ways to reduce costs, enhance revenues and improve profit. From the largest corporations to the smallest business, solid accounting practices are the financial lifeblood of an organization.
