Accounting is thousands of years old with the earliest records in Mesopotamia dating back more than 7,000 years ago.
People of that era relied on primitive accounting methods to record the growth of their crops and herds of animals. Accounting evolved, improving over the years, and advancing as business advanced. Today accounting is called ‘the language of business,’ and is regarded as the vehicle for reporting financial information about a business entity to many different groups of people.
In Hamilton, two young professionals have invested their careers in providing accounting and rural consulting services.
