Cost Management

...1: MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING Introduction: Accounting may be broadly classified into two categories – accounting which is meant to serve all parties external to the operating responsibility of the firms and the accounting which is designed to serve internal parties who take care of the operational needs of the firm. The first category which is conventionally referred to as financial accounting, looks to the interest of those who have primarily a financial stake in the organization’s affairs – creditors, investors, employees etc. On the other hand the second category of accounting is primarily concerned with providing information relating to the conduct of the various aspects of a business like cost or profit associated with some portions of business operations to the internal parties viz., management. This category of accounting is called as Management accounting. In order to perform the primary task of decision making managers of business enterprises need information about the past, present and future in the functional areas of management such as personnel, finance, marketing and production. Right decision making has to be based on quantitative and qualitative information. The management thus constantly needs accounting information to base its decisions upon. Thus management accounting provides the information needed by management personnel. Definition: The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England has defined management accounting as: “Any form of accounting......

Cost Accounting

...The function of cost accounting is to provide the cost accounting information that is the basis for planning and controlling current and future operations. It provides the cost figures and analyses that management needs in order to find the most efficient methods of operating, achieving control of costs, and determining selling prices. 2. Originally issued for companies marketing products in Europe, a set of international standards for quality management, known as the ISO 9000 family, was designed by the International Organization for Standardization. Obtaining ISO 9000 is important because many companies will only contract with ISO 9000 suppliers. 3. Manufacturers convert purchased materials into finished goods by using labor, technology, and facilities. Merchandisers purchase completed products for resale. Service businesses or agencies sell or provide services rather than products. 4. A manufacturer differs from a merchandiser in these ways: a. The merchandiser buys items to sell while the manufacturing business must make the items it markets. b. Usually the manufacturer has a greater investment in physical facilities. c. The manufacturer will incur some costs peculiar to this type of industry, such as machine maintenance, materials handling, and inspection of manufactured goods. The two types of operations are similar in that they are both concerned with purchasing, storing, and selling goods; they must have efficient management and......
