The purpose of cost accounting is to help people understand the costs of running a business. While some business costs always remain the same, others can vary, rising and falling with the volume of work. This job responsibility often falls under that of an accountant.

Who can I work for?

As an accountant you can work for either a large or small company, or for yourself instead. Working for yourself is a good decision once you have built up your own client base.
