    Explanation
    The chart of accounts is a financial tool that organizes and categorizes an organization's financial transactions. It includes a list of general ledger account names and numbers, which are used to record and track financial activities such as revenues, expenses, assets, and liabilities. These account names and numbers provide a systematic and standardized way to classify and analyze financial data, allowing for accurate and efficient financial reporting and analysis. The chart of accounts does not typically include names of customers and suppliers or inventory items, as these are usually tracked separately in other systems or modules.
