Laughing

It's funny how some people think of accountants as being boring, but that's not necessarily true.

There are several things that accountants do, particularly those who specialise in different facets of business, such as tax. (Urgh!)

But the main things that accountants do is:

- collate data for historical reporting (required by law) - historical accounting

- provide information for decision making purposes - management accounting

Both can be fascinating jobs (either that or I'm just a boring old git) but I think that a lot of people think that accountants spend their days totting up numbers on a calculator. Is that what you think? What do you think about accountants? Are they all very boring?

Well I was an accountant once myself but now I've turned my back on it and work for myself from home.

Accountants are not always boring. Though to be fair a lot of them are!

My cousin is an accountant and he is not boring, he is into motor x and extreme sports and stuff . . . although I do think he is a bit of an exception to the rule as I only know one other accountant . . . and he more fits the stereotype

but this post was about are they all boring so going off my cousin . . . no! haha Laughing
