    Just wondering if anyone can think of any uses for accounting information for purposes other than stewardship and to aid in making economic decisions?

    Trade Unions and employees can see whether it is appropriate to push for a pay rise or not.

    Customers can see if extortionate profits are being made - won't go down well if they are.

    Banks and potential creditors can see whether or not the firm will be able to repay [on time].

    Regulators.

    ...Think of stakeholders in the firm. They all need accounting information for various purposes...
