The main purpose of financial accounting is to ascertain the true result of the business operations during a particular period of time and to state the financial position of the business on a particular point of time.

There are different types of accounting one is financial accounting and the second is the cost accounting. There is a difference between the both branches of accounting. In financial accounting you make up account relating to the business and accounts are closed at the end of the year. The important thing is financial accounting is the book keeping, Final account, Balance sheet. In the financial accounting we make general record keeping of expenses and incomes in the business. So this is different from other branches of accounting. The balance sheet is made at the end of the period usually after the end of one year.

The cost accounting is different form of the financial accounting and is used for other purposes. So the cost accounting is used for the manufacturing concerns usually the cost determination of the business. So there is different between two both. So the cost accounting is used to determine cost and price in the manufacturing concerns and it provides benefits to the users. The books are closed at the end of the year. So the cost accounting is very good field of study. In determination of the price and in the price mechanism, the consideration of cost accounting is very much.
