Management accounting

Accurate and timely management accounting underpins every successful business. It’s the bedrock of success.

As a management team or owner of a business if you have to hand accurate and up to date information about the financial performance of your business you will be able to take the decisions needed to run it effectively.

It’s because we recognise the vital functions of management accounting that First Call places such an emphasis on this area of our business. Strategic management accounting is about being so close to a client’s business that the figures tell a story that might not be obvious to an outsider. It’s about being able to see beyond the obvious and to think and advise in terms of the bigger picture. It’s what First Call is good at.

What is typically included within a set of management Accounts?

The objective of management accounts is to provide the management of the business with a regular set of reports that summarises their accounting data into a form that enables them to easily get an overview of the current position.

What is included can vary depending on the size and nature of the business but typically it will include the following:

  • Balance sheet
  • Cashflow
  • Income statement
