File Name: internal and external users of accounting information .zip
The objective of accounting is to provide information to users for decision-making. But, who exactly are these "users of financial statements"?
Accounting provides companies with various pieces of information regarding business operations. It is often conducted by a company's internal accounting department and reviewed by a public accounting firm.
Owners are the persons who contribute capital in the business and ultimately responsible to bear all risk associated with the business. They are interested in the profitability and solvency of the business concern. In small business enterprises, owners control the affairs of the business directly, but in medium or large enterprises these control are exercised by the managers.
The ultimate goal of accounting is to provide information that is useful for decision-making. Users of accounting information are generally divided into two categories: internal and external. Internal users are those within an organization who use financial information to make day-to-day decisions. Internal users include managers and other employees who use financial information to confirm past results and help make adjustments for future activities. Organizations measure financial performance in monetary terms. In the United States, the dollar is used as the standard measurement basis.
If you want to know how a business is performing, financial statements provide the answer. Is there enough cash in the bank to pay the bills? Is the company making money? Have the assets been swallowed up by debt? The users of financial statements such as the balance sheet include people both inside and outside your company. Because so many people rely on financial statements for information, federal regulation, and generally accepted accounting principles GAAP have standardized the formats.
External users are creditors, investors, government, trading partners, regulatory agencies, international standardization agencies, journalists and internal users are owners, directors, managers, employees of the company. Internal users are that individual who runs, manages and operates the daily activities of the inside area of an organization. Financial accounting is the process for the preparation of financial reports of the enterprise for use by both internal and external parties. Creditors and Investors are the most regular example of external users among many other external users. Creditors or lenders use the accounting information to find out the ability of the borrower to repay the loan, the number of assets and liabilities of the borrower, evidence of income, economic position, etc. Before investing, an investor sees the financial report for figuring out the possibilities of the business in the future.
