Strange accounting

Strange accounting
Hello guys
This year first time in my life I encountered with cost accounting. This is a realy bad experience. I mean there is nothing common in financial and cost accounting except the word "accounting". That's why I called it strange accounting. There is no logic, just 'rata'. My teacher says, "just learn it, don't try to understand or you'll forget financial accounting too."
I don't understand why it is so different from financial accounting.
Its also a problem that how do I understand it or "learn" it.

Shahid my advice to u will be to just forget what is Debit/credit while doing cost accounting.Rules of debit/credit are of no use in cost accounting except for one or two topics.

cost accounting is primiraly based on formulas and i think it is very easy as compared to financial accounting.i treated cost accounting just like stat.

Out of all my accounting courses, I would have to say Cost Accounting was my favorite. I found it to be the most interesting aspect of accounting. It actually helped me to determine what area of the accounting field I am most interested in. Although its some time back,but myinstructor made it very interesting by giving me real life situations that may occur and i covered almost every scenario possible. Although I learned a lot from all of my accounting courses, I feel that this one really stuck with me and I will rely on the knowledge I gained from it for many years to come.

If I could... Then I would... Turn back time!!

So! many people like it as response came "interesting".
No doubt that its interesting
Finding missing items
Budget "forcasting"
Recovering lost data in factory fire
50% times I find myself a "NAJOOMI" figering out future happenings

======================================================================

The point for which I called it "strange" was its difference from financial accounting. I worked out more on it and came to know that in past (even near past), there was no proper system for cost accountig. Amaricans founded some institute for that in I think 70s or what, but rules they followed were based on statements rather then DR/CR. Let me tell you that they even deal whith financial accounting in statement or +/- form (i.e. income statemt or bank statement).

Statement form was actually developed to present data to general public (i.e. Accountant creates P&L A/C and in annual report publishes Income Statement, Balance Sheet is also published in statement form from top to bottom rather then columner form, while we know that when it is created its in form of columns)

The truth is I never liked statement form for students because it hides real effects "like why we are adding an item in an item". In case of DR/CR student don't use rata, instead he knows how to deal with an item.

In case of cost accounting some time there is no, even in back ground, role of DR/CR. We just add or less. Without knowing why. You can't expect students to research by themselves and there is no teacher in Pakistan who tells why he has added or minesed an item.
Our teachers say "remember the question along with answer like theory and every thing is going to be ok".

If in CA - ACCA teachers do same then I think I should bibi my studies and do something else.

AOA,
I am doing CMA from ICMAP Islamabad. And
I don't think that you all are right about Cost Accounting.
Like given comments "Rata, No Dr/Cr Rules etc"
Its all about understanding of whatever is happing to measuring the Cost of a Product. And There are rules, and logic for calculating all the matters/Costs.

Yes, it is different to Financial but not easy. I found it more difficult rather than Financial.

I think my answer needs arguments.


Pray and Keep praying Always

A.Salam Bhai

Cost accounting is similar to financial accounting. There are rules governing it and a lot of things can be represented in classic T account format.
If you would put a specific question, then perhaps someone would be able to help rather than making general statements [D][D]

In my point of vies cost accounting is much interesting than the accounting example of cost accounting....and there is no need for rutta

One simple example of cost accounting….
A company budget to produce the product x 10,000 units
Company produce the product X during the year 9,000 units

Now if your are asked to take the variance, you need to use a simple and common sense formula

Budget production 10,000
Actual production 9,000

Variances 1,000
