1. My accountant has told me that my business made a profit of £100,000 last year. However over the same time period my bank balance has decreased and not increased as I expected.

2. Outline the basic principles and major development phases of accounting information systems (AIS).
Include in your answer brief discussion of the key characteristics of useful information supplied by an AIS.
