Intermediate Accounting(ACC-301) is the first course in a two-course sequence that covers financial reporting for external parties. The purpose of financial reporting is to provide meaningful information to individuals and institutions that have an interest in business, whether they be investors, creditors, or managers. It is a company's accounting system that creates and provides this vital information to investors and creditors. Business managers likewise need information produced through financial accounting in making day-to-day operational decisions that improve a company's performance and profitability.
