CMA - Cost and Management Accountant
The Role of Cost and Management Accountant(CMA) in the Organization
The purpose of management accounting in the organization is to support competitive decision making by collecting, processing, and communicating information that helps management plan, control, and evaluate business processes and company strategy. The interesting thing about management accounting is that it is rare to find an individual within a company with the title of “management accountant.” Often many individuals function as accountants within the organization, but these individuals typically operate as financial accountants, costs accountants, tax accountants, or internal auditors. However, the ability to develop and use good management accounting (which covers a lot more ground than the product costing done by cost accountants) is actually an important ability for many individuals, including finance professionals, operational and marketing managers, top-level executives, and information technologists.
Generally, in a very large company, each division has a top accountant called the controller, and much of the management accounting that is done in these divisions comes under the leadership of the controller. On the other hand, the controller usually reports to the vice president of finance for the division who, in turn, reports to the division’s president and/or overall chief financial officer (CFO). All of these individuals are responsible for the flow of good accounting information that supports the planning, control, and evaluation work that takes place within the organization. Therefore the process of management accounting is the process of creating and using cost, quality, and time-based information to make effective decisions within the organization. Many people in the organization play a role in this process. The internal audit department has the responsibility of ensuring that controls are followed and operations are efficient. Financial accounting, while providing information to outsiders (such as creditors, investors, and government agencies), must also provide relevant financial reports to decision makers within the organization. Systems professionals have the responsibility to process information so that it is available to management in formats useful for decision making. Tax department experts make sure that the organization complies with the tax laws and pays no more than its legally obligated tax liability, but these people also participate in good planning, control, and evaluation of processes and decisions that will affect future tax expense exposure. Finally, cost accounting obviously plays a key role in tracking and reporting relevant product and service costs. Overall, the controller works to bring together all this information as an integral part of the planning, controlling, evaluating, and decision-making activities that take place throughout the organization.
