Management Accounting Review for SMU MBA

I have to share an accounting concept for management. This is the review for SMU MBA students by financial management MBA book. It is for those students who are busy in preparing their MBA by SMU. Below is review by management accounting blog:

“Management accounting is not only for the record keeping but also it has broader aspects. The managers use the financial statements as resources to make decision in the field of accounting. About the management accounting we can take a look from MBA book of SMU, “Management accounting is the process of identifying, measuring, accumulating, analyzing, preparing, interpreting and communicating information that helps managers to fulfill organizational objectives.”

Here with the definition of management accounting we can say it is for the fulfill of organization objectives by the managers to use all the financial statements and resources.

Objectives of Management Accounting:

Scope of management accounting

Need for financial statements analysis and inter-firm comparisons

Relevance of cost analysis – overhead analysis, job cost analysis and process cost analysis

Relevance of marginal cost and C.V.P. analysis for short-run decision-making

We should know that all the management process single and most upper goal is decision making. So, decision-making is known as the nucleus of management process. Here we will look a chart to understand of decision-making process:

decision-making process

Meaning and Scope of Management Accounting:

About the meaning of management accounting Charles T. Horgren writes, “Management accounting is the process of identifying, measuring, accumulating, analyzing, preparing, interpreting and communicating information that helps managers to fulfill organizations objectives.”

As I have already mentioned that management accounting is not only the process of keeping records. Records keeping is the process of data accumulation however management accounting is the decision making process. So, the management accounting scope has broader then financial statements and record keeping.

About the evaluation of management accounting the history says that it comes with the industrial revolution from the 18th century. Management accounting is the results of capitalist system.

Management accounting has been divided into four parts – book keeping, financial accounting, accounting and cost accounting and social responsibility accounting.

Like this management accounting has one more main part that is MIS (Management Information Systems). MIS for management accounting is most important process because it collects data and gives the right way to analysis that data to take good decisions by managers.

At last we can give some facts which are necessary in functions of management accounting:

Formulation of a business plan

Implementation of the plan

Designed to achieve the goals of the plan

Formulation of business plans

These are the main function of management accounting an organization. However, we have already discussed on the management accounting chapter. Now, I think I will cover some more facts in the next chapter of financial management accounting chapter.”

The loan against home is simply the secured type of loan

Smart people always make smart choices. When it comes to loan, if one owned home and needs a large sum of money as loan, then nothing but loan against home would be the best option.

Money acts like the lifeblood in modern world, without it one can’t think of survival. It is really a tough job for the salaried people to make acute financial management; there are times which come to life when the need of taking loans knocks on the door. Availing the proper type of loan according to your requirement is not at all a tough job today. Now you will find several banks and other financial organisations in India which are offering several types of loans for meeting different kinds of financial requirements of people. Among those, one of the most lucrative types of loan is the loan against home.

The loan against home is simply the secured type of loan, for availing which one need to pledge his residential home as security to the lender. Here, it should be mentioned that in order to avail such loan by pledging his commercial property and the residential property, which will be pledged, the item of security should have market value. By availing loans under this category, one can get several advantages which are discussed here:

The primary advantage that a lender provides to the borrower is the low rate of interest. This loan is provided at much cheaper interest rate than the personal loan (which is usually issued at an interest rate of 16 to 21 %). The rate at which the loans against property are issued is 9.75 to 11.50 %. As the lending entity is having security, if the borrower is not able to pay back the loan amount, then the lender will have full authority to recover that sum by selling the secured property.

Other benefits that the borrowers get under the loan against property are highly flexible repayment option and long repayment tenure. The borrowers facilitate the borrowers to pay back the loan amount by equated monthly instalments (EMIs). The borrowers will also be benefited by getting longer repayment tenure to return the loan amount, which is longer than that for a personal loan. One can get up to 10 years of tenure to pay back the loan amount.

Like the personal loans, the loan against home can be taken for any purpose; the borrower doesn’t require disclosing the reason of availing loans to the lending institution.

There are several banks in India which spread their helping hands to give you the advantage of loan against property. The IDBI banks, ICICI bank, Bank of Baroda are the names of a few. To avail the advantage of such loans without wasting precious time, energy and by making a comprehensive comparison of interest rates among different lending institutions, the best way is the Internet media.

By going Online, you will find hundreds of online financial organisations which facilitate you to get the advantage of loan against home. To make the right choice of lender, the online financial organisations give you the advantage to make a comparison among different lenders for the most reasonable interest rate and flexible terms and conditions.

So, from the above discussion one thing is quite clear that if you are home-owner and possess the desire to avail a loan, then nothing but the loan against home would be your perfect choice. Such a loan facilitates you with a reasonable rate of interest and flexible repayment options. To get the maximum advantage of such loan, nothing but the online mode would be the best option for you.
