• Is, generally, disorganized and disjointed in the form.
• Is in raw-form and is the input of accounting.
• Cannot be understood or made use of by the users.
• it does not depend upon information.
Information:
• Refers to only those events which are concerned with entity.
• Is properly arranged, classified and organized.
• Is in the finished form and is the output of accounting.
• Is understood and used by the users of accounting information for taking their decisions.
