Nowadays there are many accounting software packages available in the market. These accounting software help people who are in the profession of accounting to obtain final accounts at a very high speed and it is possible to rectify errors easily and quickly. A human accountant may post a wrong entry or commit an error when writing the books of accounts. Errors are basically of two types, namely errors of omission and errors of commission.

However, a computer is a machine which is used to calculate large numbers and do other operations at a very high speed and does not commit any errors on its own (the errors may, however, occur on the part of the person who feeds in the data into the computer). It is very helpful to the modern-day practicing accountant who has to finalise the accounts and close the books of account at the end of every accounting period. Another advantage of computers is that they can be used anywhere, anytime and even everyday or any number of times in a day.
