Abstract

Learning Objectives

At the end of this chapter, learners should be able to:

  • Identify and describe the main functions that fall within the activities labelled ‘accounting’ and ‘finance’ and relate these functions to one another.

  • Locate these functions within the structures typical of small and large organisations and relate these functions:

    • (a)

      to organisational success and failure and

    • (b)

      to other business functions.

  • For each of the main class of decision made by human resource practitioners identify the information required and the ways in which this information is, in part, generated by the accounting and finance function.
