You have recently hired a new assistant, Susan Thompson, who previously worked in a financial accounting office preparing journal entries, which provide you with a recording of the day-to-day activities of the company and financial statements (income statement, statement of owners' equity balance sheet, and cash flow statement). Although your new assistant has experience with and fully understands financial accounting, she has no experience with managerial accounting.

Assignment

In a memo to your new assistant, Susan Thompson, explain to her the similarities and differences between financial and managerial accounting. Provide examples of managerial accounting reports that she could expect to see within EEC, and explain how management might use the information to make decisions.

Examples of a few of those reports are the horizontal analyzes, vertical analyzes, and ratios.
