what is accounting - definition

Quite simply, accounting is a language: a language that provides information about the financial position of an organization.

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) defines accountancy as "the art of recording, classifying, and summarizing in a significant manner and in terms of money, transactions and events which are, in part at least, of financial character, and interpreting the results thereof." 
 
It is a practice and body of knowledge concerned primarily with
1.    methods for recording transactions,
2.    keeping financial records,
3.    performing internal audits,
4.    reporting and analyzing financial information to the management, and
5.    advising on taxation matters.

It is a systematic process of identifying, recording, measuring, classifying, verifying, summarizing, interpreting and communicating financial information. It reveals profit or loss for a given period, and the value and nature of a firm's assets, liabilities and owners' equity.
Accounting provides information on the

1.    resources available to a firm,
2.    the means employed to finance those resources, and
3.    the results achieved through their use.
