What Will I Learn?

Accountancy is informed and guided by standards. In Accounting 10, we will examine the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These standards will support the concepts learned throughout the course and inform our decision-making.

Throughout this course, we will examine how a service business, organized as a sole proprietorship, records, processes, analyses, and presents financial information. As part of this examination, we will look at different cash controls and how a business ensures the legitimacy of the financial records and data it maintains. Finally, we will prepare financial statements which are the critical to the process of making informed business decisions.

Students taking Accounting 10 will choose from Aplia accounting Software or Microsoft Excel for the completion of the accounting problems. Computerized accounting, while different from business to business, is the standard format used in accountancy today.
