From small businesses to the Fortune 500’s accountants and auditors help to ensure that the nation’s firms are run more efficiently.
Companies perform vital functions by offering an increasingly wide array of business and accounting services to clients. These services include public management and government accounting, as well as internal auditing.
Computers are rapidly changing the nature of the work for most accountants and auditors. With the aid of special software packages, accountants summarize transactions in standard formats for financial records and organize data in special formats for financial analysis. Accountants are also beginning to perform more technical duties, such as implementing and controlling auditing systems and networks and developing technology plans and budgets. Accountants are increasingly assuming the role of personal financial advisors.
