Goal: One stop location to find accounting information, help, and training. Differentiation – 1) Large comprehensive selection of topics including financial accounting, managerial accounting, tax, and small business tips. 2) Use of trial balance and chart of accounts including an explanation to understand more concepts as they relate to the accounting process as a whole, including the double entry accounting system, the chart of accounts, and debits and credits. Many books and resources focus on very limited aspects of a topic leaving us with little understanding of how it fits into the double entry accounting system, how it relates to debits and credits, and how it would be journalized to a trial balance. We make an effort to show these accounting relationships.
