INTRODUCTION

Management accounting is the development of information for insiders such as company managers. Managers use this information to measure the progress toward their goals and highlight any potential problems in advance.Forexample, managers want to know which products have the best sales

And which are selling poorly. Which products tend to sell together? How  is inventory being managed? What about cash? Will the firm have enough cash to pay its upcoming debt payments?

Acountants answers these questions with budgets , variance reports, sensitivity analysis, revenue reports, cost projections,and even analysis of competitors.When firms consider how to expand products and services, managerial accountants help formulate profit projections from revenue and cost projections. In short, managerial accounting has historically played a large part in the control and evaluation of the business and its performance.

 

 

 

CHAPTER    1

  1. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

 

Financial accounting provides information for outsiders. Whereas managerial accounting reports may break down performance for

Managers by individual products or regions of the country, finanacial reports summarise the business as a whole, although they can be broken into

Business segments and regions. In the case of Publicly held companies, these reports are the quarterly and annual financialstatements that they must file with the securities and exchange commission (SEC).

During the last two decades ,the role of accounting departments within companies has changed. Instead of simply providing information to insiders and outsiders , accounting departments have begun the transition into being profit centers, instead of simply reporting the quarterly profits of the firm, accounting departments are asked to increase profits through application of accounting methods. Different methods often lead to different

Levels of reportable profits.The reporting of profits, therefore can be both an art and a science. This process is known as managing earnings.

For example, accountants may feelpressure to meet internal targets .Managers may want to show theiremployees and the board of directors that they were able to increase revenue and decrease cost.

The research seek to provide an appraisal and of the nature and significance of management Accounting with a case study of Dunlope Plc.
