  • Speaker Notes: Greet user and simply inform them that in this report, Accounting and Financial Systems shall be generalized as Accounting Systems. Although Accounting and Finance, by definition, is different in a way that the former is involved with analyzing how the cash flows in a firm while the latter is involved on allocating cash in different business processes, both of such functions are integrated in mid-to-high end Accounting Systems, which are generally classified as part of the Enterprise Resource Planning Systems. For a firm with an ERS, an Accounting System cannot function without its Financial counterpart, hence the so-called Check and Balance. It must be noted though that this interrelation is applicable on mid-to-high end companies alone, as Finance Systems can actually operate independently without the Accounting System and vice versa for small-scale needs such as personal or single-function areas. An example of this is that a Finance System can be used by an individual to budget his money, and a student accountant can rely solely on a spreadsheet simply to make ledgers that may not be necessarily needed by corporate functions.
