Management accounting
Management accounting
is concerned with the provisionsand use of accountinginformation to managers withinorganizations, to provide them with the basis to make informedbusiness decisions that will allow them to be better equipped intheir management and control functions.
 
contrast tofinancial accountancyinformation,management accounting information is:
usually confidential and used by management, instead of publicly reported;
forward-looking, instead of historical;
pragmatically computed using extensivemanagementinformation systemsand internal controls, instead of complying with accounting standards.This is because of the different emphasis: managementaccounting information is used within an organization,typically for decision-making.
