Managing the company’s financial resources (“Finance”)
Recording and reporting all its financial transactions (“Accounting”).

Many companies don’t establish separate Finance and Accounting departments, so might instead have a chief financial officer who performs or oversees the company’s the finance functions & accounting activities. Just knowing where to begin is a challenge.

Maybe you should start by asking yourself below questions:
What do you need to spend (expenses)?
What you spent last year or last month?
What you hope you can get approval to spend?
Do you actually know what it will really cost? The accounting & financial managers have their own lingo (linguistic terms), it is very important to be familiar with to well understand the accounting &/or financial reports & sheets, specially the basic Financial Statements

NET INCOME = REVENUES – EXPENSES. There is a wide variety of other reports that may accompany the basic statements, or separately prepared for special purpose.

Commonly these reports manage a specific area in the company’s finance. Accounting Systems 1. Cash Basis Accounting (Historical Reporting)
2. Accrual Accounting System. The cash basis accounting means a transaction is recorded only when cash changes hands Accrual basis accounting means transactions are recorded when an economic event (sales action) is deemed to have occurred.
