— Hello, Pat. You didn't phone me yesterday.

- No, I didn't. I was very tired last night.


-I had such a busy day.

-Did you? What did you do?

-I woke up at 6 and went to the station to meet my moth­er-in-law.

-Why didn't your husband do that?

-He went to Paris on business. 

-I see.

-Then we had breakfast. I left her at home and went to my office. I was 15 minutes late because I was in a hurry and a policeman stopped me. So it took me an hour to get to my work.

-Oh, my! I hope you didn't have much work at the office.

-Yes, I did. We had a long meeting in the morning, then I had a lot of visitors, and at the end of the working day I wrote some business letters.

-Did your daughter cook dinner for you?

-No, she didn't. She was busy at the University and came home very late.

-Poor thing! I hope you are not so busy tomorrow.

The accounting process.

Accounting is the art of gathering information about a business and reporting this information to users. The six major steps of the accounting process are: analyzing, recording, classifying, summarizing, reporting and interpreting. People must analyze and interpret accounting data.

Analysing is looking to see what happened and thinking about how this effects the business.

Recording is entering financial information into the accounting system.

Classifying is sorting and grouping like items together rather than merely keeping a simple diary like record of numerous events.

Summarizing is bringing the various items of information together to explain the result.

Reporting is telling the results in a commonly understood language. The results are most often reported in a table of numbers.

Interpreting is deciding the importance of the various reports. This may include percentage analyses and the use of ratios to help explain how pieces of information relate to one another.
