Accounting Day Celebration On 19th May, 2014

International Accounting Day or Accountant's Day gives recognition to the people who do the job that few others want to do -- trudge through long complex tax forms, deal with the IRS, and being the ones who keep a company's finances and financial strategy healthy.

We haven't been able to locate the creator or origin of this holiday, though it does occur on a date of significance. On November 10th, 1494 the Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita (Everything About Arithmetic, Geometry and Proportion) was published in Venice. One of the tractatus of the Summa, entitled "Particularis de computis et scripturis" (About accounts and other writings) provides a detailed description of Venetian book-keeping.

Let’s face it, for some unthinkable reason most of us avoid accountants like the plague, which is perfectly forgivable throughout the year, with one exception: Accounting Day.

International Accounting Day is the professional holiday of all accountants, and is also frequently referred to asInternational Accountant's Day. 

Accounting Day

Even though many countries have designated some local date for praising accountants, May 19 is the date that unites all people in the profession. This day goes back in history to year 1494, when book titled "Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita" (Everything About Arithmetic, Geometry and Proportion) was published in Venice. This was the first book that contained essay on double-entry bookkeeping and provided a base for other works on mercantile accounting.
