Financial and Charity Accounting

Setting up a business is like growing this coconut tree, expecting it to yield fruits for sale.
You need to know how much resources or inputs go into the entire process. This is the cost or expenditure aspect.
You also need to know how much you receive from the coconut business. This is the income or revenue aspect.
For a "givien period" or at a "specific point in time", you will need to determine how well or how badly the coconut business is doing. This will enable you to decide whether or not to continue with the business.
This basically involves counting all your costs on the one hand, and determining all the income or revenue on the other.
In financial accounting,
Profit or Loss = total income or revenue less total cost.
- If total income or revenue is more than total cost, this means profit.
- If total cost is more than total income or revenue, then you have make a loss.
In real situation, business is much more complex than "the coconut tree" situation shown above.
What is Financial Accounting?
This involves "setting up and operating a system for collecting, measuring and recording an enterprise's transactions, and summarising and communicating the results of these transactions to users for financial/ economic decisions". Thomas, A (An Introduction to Finanacial Accounting 3rd Ed.), the McGraw-Hill Companies.
