For example, you see utility expenses for Plant 1 as account numbers 100?99, while utility expenses for Plant 2 are 2234?9998.

Specifically, how can setting it up well help the company's managers and vice versa.;Explain what criteria you would suggest that the managers use because you will want them to set up a much more orderly chart of accounts.;Explain what difficulties a company may encounter during the changeover from an old, outdated chart of accounts to a new chart of accounts.;Explain why setting up a series of subsidiary ledgers would make things easier/better for both the accounting managers as well as the users of the information reported.
