Why choose Accounting?
Accountants often hold high-level management positions where financial control, decision-making, legal compliance and leadership skills are essential.
Accounting is often called a common language of business because it underpins almost all business and organisational activities. An understanding of the role of accounting in organisations is important of all managers, regardless of their area of specialisation.
Financial accountants process and communicate financial information; management accountants prepare data for management decisions; tax accountants provide tax compliance advice; and auditors check the financial reporting of organisations. Commercial law and how it relates to the conduct of business in New Zealand is also relevant to accountants.
