Accountancy and Finance
Accounting is often referred to as the language of business. Accountants provide businesses with the information they need to make intelligent strategic and operational decisions. The Business Finance Group provides information, analysis, opinion, news and business tools for the accounting and finance community, from sole practitioners to FTSE100 CFOs.
Leading an organisation’s financial strategy and finance department is arguably the most important responsibility within any business. Finance directors need to have knowledge of all aspects of their organisation, including IT, marketing, production and sales as well as the internal logistics of keeping the business alive. Being aware of opportunities and cost savings is a principle task of the modern FD, in order to create an environment where the business strategy can succeed. The FD community is disparate and covers all industry sectors and sizes of organisation – however the core functions and information needs remain constant.
The UK accounting industry comprises accountancy practices of all sizes and specialities. From the Big Four to sole practitioners with a handful of clients, their function in business is the same – to advise and to audit their clients. Accounting firms work within an incredibly competitive environment where business is won and lost depending on the quality of information and the professionalism of staff.
