What is Accounting?

Proper analysis is key to the success of any business and is utilized in many forms. While some fields may analyze consumer behavior, human resources, or quality control in a business, accounting involves the recording, reporting, and analysis of financial transactions. From running a lemonade stand to running a globally-operating corporation, understanding core accounting principles is essential to the success of any business.
