Accounting, Payroll & Control Systems

In business information systems support not only business processes and operations, but also decision-making and competitive strategies, which are the fields of MIS.

As an area of study, MIS is sometimes referred to, in a restrictive sense, as information technology management. The study of information systems is usually a business administration discipline. Concentrates on the integration of computer systems with the aims of the organisation.

Accounting software is computer software that records and processes accounting transactions within functional modules such as Purchases, Sales, payroll and trial balance. It functions as an accounting information system. It may be developed in-house by the company or organisation using it, may be purchased from a third party, or may be a combination of a third-party application software package with local modifications. It varies greatly in its complexity and cost.

FDC Accountants have been engaged by many clients over the past 30 years in providing monthly or periodical management consultancy services by visiting client premises and offering support to client’s inhouse accounts staff and finalising reports for management and attending management meetings providing expert opinion and mediation.
