Accounting is the process of identifying, measuring and communicating economic information so a user of the information may make informed economic judgments and decisions based on it. It is the degree of measurement of financial transactions which are transfers of legal property rights made under contractual relationships.

Another way to characterize accounting would be as the system of recording, verifying, and reporting of the value of assets, liabilities, income, and expenses in the books of account to which debit and credit entries are chronologically posted to record changes in value. Such financial information is primarily used by lenders, managers, investors, tax authorities and other decision makers to make resource allocation decisions between and within companies, organizations, and public agencies. Accounting is the art of recording, classifying, and summarizing the of money, transactions, and events which are generally of a financial character and interpreting the results of such analysis.

A controller is a person who supervises the accounting and financial reporting within an organization. The position can also be described as an accountant in a business who oversees accounting and the implementation and monitoring of internal controls. A controller or financial controller is a senior position within most companies, often reporting to a Chief Financial Officer.

These responsibilities usually specifically include establishing and maintaining the organization or businesses' accounting principles, practices, procedures, and initiatives.
