The effect of market relations in all spheres of the national economy has given rise to a host of problems related to the conditions of the transition period.

The main part of the public sector enterprises are privatized, small and medium-sized businesses have appeared, joint-stock companies, however, accounting and reporting is far behind the market transformations. Under these conditions, the main role in making management decisions belongs to the accountant, as the accountant must comprehensively study the problem, analyze, determine the degree of risk, calculate the upcoming profit or loss, prepare solutions to the problem and submit to management for making optimal decisions.

The objectivity of the presentation of this information, first of all, depends on the accountant(regnskapsfører kristiansand).
