This topic is too vague for me. Since I'm not into accounting or any related matter with it, I had a hard time understanding the whole article. As much as I want to, there are some terminologies that are not familiar to me that's why it became a hard thing for me. By the way, I would still want to thank you for posting this article! This is helpful to my fellow readers.
