Managerial Accounting

Due to varying business characteristics the managerial accounting techniques applied in each business may differ. For example a business in the start-up phase may rely heavily upon budgeting and capital investment techniques; whereas a business in the mature/maintaining phase may rely heavily upon cost management and quality control. Ultimately the techniques used by management should assist the business in achieving its short-term and long-term goals through effective decision-making.
