Difference between Accountants and Auditors

pencil-and-paper Accounting is a process of using a set of concepts and techniques to measure and report financial information about a business.  The business is generally considered to be a separate and distinct legal entity.  The information is potentially reported to a variety of different types of interested parties.  These include business managers, owners, investors, creditors, government regulators, financial analysts and even employees.

Auditing is a process involving the evaluating, scrutinizing  and the examination of transactions and systems that underlie an organization’s financial reports, with the ultimate goal of providing an independent report on the appropriateness of financial statements.

In other words, accountants are in charged of the day-to-day duties of maintaing the accounts, implementing the board financial strategy, if any. At the end of the period, accountant would produce Financial Statement, a summary report of the financial performance throughout the period. Whereas, auditor conduct a check on the accuracy of the financial statements, to ensure that there is no material misstatement of the financial statement prepared.
