I created this website in 2009 because I felt I had a way to teach accounting to people that was simpler and better than the existing schools and textbooks.

I decided to put up most of my accounting book for free on this website.

The site has grown tremendously due to the volume of free information available here. As of 2016 it has reached over 4 million individuals in total (and growing each day).

This includes both individuals from developed countries like the US, Canada, Australia and the UK, as well as many individuals from developing countries - from India and Bangladesh to Ethiopia and Rwanda, South-East Asia, the Pacific islands and more.

Santosh from India

For the most part, these are hard-working individuals who are looking to improve their education so they can create a better life for themselves and their family. Individuals like the gentleman pictured here - Santosh, from Andhra Pradesh, India - who wrote in to ask what capital structure means.

To keep this site going and indeed to reach more people like Santosh requires the resources to do so.

If you feel you have benefited from using this site you are more than welcome to make a donation.

A generous contribution to this site ensures that I can continue to reach and empower people all over the world, including individuals from developing countries that desperately need this sort of information to become better educated and climb out of the poverty trap.

Your contribution will not only help pay the bills such as website hosting, design and maintenance, but also helps to create new programs to reach more people (new pages on this site, YouTube videos, etc.).

So please make a donation to this site - a donation of any amount is welcome.

If you make a meaningful donation of $20 or more, I will send you a complimentary copy of my Accounting Basics: Complete Guide e-book as a small thank you for supporting my site.

Please note that I am not a registered US nonprofit organization and as such your donation may not be tax deductible in the US (and possibly elsewhere) - it is something to do simply out of the goodness of your heart, and it is up to you if you want to try deduct this for tax purposes.
