The Evolution of Accounting

Accounting is a seriously old profession and practice with its roots being planted some 7000 years ago. It’s not surprising then, that the stereotype of an accountant is a stuffy chap with a dusty old suit, who speaks in jargon laden sentences that even an accountancy graduate can’t grasp.


Ch.. ch.. changes

Over time accounting has changed a huge amount. It started out as a simple way of keeping track of what happened in your business on a day to day basis. In essence, at least, it has remained the same. But nearly everything else has changed.

New laws, regulations, generally accepted accounting principles and standards have been introduced that have complicated and developed accounting throughout the ages. This hasn’t been without cause either, when you consider the number of scandals in recent years it’s understandable that accounting has become a more complex machine.

All of the terminology, standards, rules and regulations have left accounting a veritable nightmare for small business owners to get their head around, even when asking the most simple of questions.
