The internal users are company’s managers and employees. These are the users working for the company.
  • External users of accounting information: External users of accounting information depend on the information to check the progress and profitability of the business, assess the ability of the company to repay the liabilities, measure income of the company, and evaluate the return of the company for the investment. The external users are customers, creditors, taxing authorities, and investors. These are the users who do not work for the company.
