Both Accounting and Finance are essential cogs in the larger Business and Economics machine. But what sets them apart?
Accounting has a narrower focus when compared to Finance. Accounting is all about creating and storing financial records. These records can belong to private companies, individual people, government or state agencies, and so on.
Some main tasks of accountants are:
- Ensure all financial transactions are processed correctly.
- Keep account balances up-to-date.
- Verify and guarantee the accuracy of financial statements.
- Follow the latest accounting policies, regulations, and changes.
Meanwhile, Finance deals with financial systems and the management of money and investments. Finance involves working with banking institutions, transaction policies, investment funds, credits, and so on.
Some main tasks of financial experts are:
- ensure the client (company, individual, government) has enough funding for their objectives.
- oversee the optimal distribution of funds.
- manage capital (funding) and avoid potential risks.
