International Accounting Day
International Accounting Day or International Accountant’s Day is celebrated all around the world every year on November 10 to give attention to accountants who do the highly challenging and stressful job that not many individuals want to do.
International Accounting Day is tied in with promoting the accounting profession. It looks to permit individuals to network among their colleagues and expects to allow proceeding with education for those interested in the industry.
Did you know, the first professional bodies for accountants were set up in Scotland in 1854 and that the choice of November 10th comes from when an Italian Mathematician called Fra Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli published a work titled Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita on this day in 1494? This work formed the basis of the double-entry accounting system that is still used across the globe to this very day.
People need specific talents to become accountants, these include

- And, of course, a good head for numbers and business
