One disadvantage to the computerized accounting system is the cost of operations. The traditional system requires no more than a piece of paper, pencil, and a competent bookkeeper. The computerized system, however, required computers, printers, and an accounting application, which may become a monthly expense. With both traditional and computerized accounting systems available to the business, the questions remain which system will provide the best support? Small businesses may not deem it necessary to purchase so much equipment to keep of income and expenses of little volume. On the other hand, a bigger business may not find it feasible to have a whole accounting department keeping track of everything with only a calculator at their disposal. References Shanker, S.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
