Unit 1

Learning Objectives: After studying this unit, you should be able to understand the following

1. To expose the students with meaning, need and purpose of accounting. 2. To know the functions Accounting. 3. To understand the difference between Financial Accounting and Management Accounting. 4. To acquaint with the basic terminology used in the subject.1.2 Evolution of Financial AccountingAny branch of knowledge does not emerge all of a sudden. Knowledge is a product of continuous intellectual exercise and the changes in the environmental and social demands. Accounting is an ancient art. Michael Russel in his article Evolution of Accounting points out that as early as 8500 B.C, accounting was existing. Archeologists have found clay tokens as old as 8500 BC in Mesopotamia which were usually cones, disks, spheres and pellets. These tokens correspond to such commodities like sheep, clothing or bread. They were used in the Middle West in keeping records. Similarly in ancient civilizations like China, Babylonia, Greece and Egypt, record keeping was in practice in the same manner as stated above. During 3600 BC in Babylonia payment of salaries was recorded in clay tablets. The rulers of these civilizations kept track of labour and material costs by using accounting methods. In an article published by John R. Alexander on History of Accounting, he stated that an improved system of book keeping known as double entry book keeping was introduced in 14th century and the following seven key ingredients were responsible for the creation of double entry book keeping. Private property: The power to change ownership, because book keeping is concerned with recording the facts about property and property rights Capital: Wealth productively employed, because otherwise commerce would be trivial and credit would not exist Commerce: The interchange of goods on a widespread level, because purely local trading in small volume would not create the sort of press of business needed to spur the creation of an organized system to replace the existing hodgepodge of record keeping Credit: The present use of future goods, because there would have been little impetus to record transactions completed on the spot.

Writing: A mechanism for making a permanent record in a common language given the limits of human memory.

Money: The common denominator for exchange, since there is no need for book keeping except as it reduces transactions to a set of monetary values.

Arithmetic: A means of computing the monetary details of the deal.

Double entry records first came out during 1340 A.D. in Genoa. In 1494, the first systematic record keeping was formulated by Fra Luca Pacioli a Franciscan monk and one of the most celebrated mathematicians to this day. Pacioli is considered as the father of accounting. Michael Russel, in his article states that industrial revolution, which brought paradigm changes in the working and business transactions paved way to the specialized field of accounting called cost accounting in order to meet the need for the analysis of various costs. Mean while, corporate form of organisation came into being which made it necessary to report financial information to the owners (shareholders) by the management. Virtually management and ownership got separated and to instill confidence of the shareholders, managers had to submit reports, as prepared on the basis of accounting information. Welsch and Anthony, in their book Fundamentals of Financial Accounting, comment that the growth of business organizations in size, particularly publicly held corporations, has brought pressure from stock holders, potential investors, creditors, government agencies, and the public at large, for increased financial disclosure.
