Money can be critical in our lives.As we step into a professional environment, we can see that every kind of organization really needs money – to pay for their utilities, to maintain their facilities or infrastructure, to reimburse their staff members and to pay taxes to their government. Thus, in a very real and practical way, ‘finance’ can become the crux of any kind of organization– it can mean the difference between success and failure.
From an even larger point-of-view, standard-setting authorities officially lay down the laws, rules and regulations that all organizations – private, corporate, for-profit, non-profit and government –must obey compulsorily. Becausethese rules can effectively mould the professional landscape, organizations should be well-aware of the latest laws, rules and regulations to survive and to thrive. In tandem, they really need to have a handle on their internal finances.
