Banque Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La Tour HSBC à Londres, siège social depuis 1993. La Tour Société Générale à La Défense. Le terme de banque renvoie soit à un secteur d'activité économique, celui traitant les opération de banque -le secteur bancaire, soit à l'un des types d'établissement actif dans ce secteur. Au sens du droit positif français, une banque est l'une des catégories légales d'établissement de crédit (article L. 511-1 du Code monétaire et financier). Ces établissements de crédit obtiennent le monopole de l'octroi des opération de banque (article L.311-1 de ce même Code monétaire et financier). Une banque est donc, à la fois, une entreprise qui : produit des services bancaires ;en fait le commerce ;fait commerce d'autres services financiers ou connexes. Elle est ainsi au cœur du commerce de l'argent et en responsabilité directe de la gestion des risques financiers. Origine du terme[modifier | modifier le code] Boîte de changeur (1655).

Comptabilité Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La comptabilité est une discipline pratique, consistant à schématiser, répertorier et enregistrer les données chiffrées permettant de refléter et de qualifier, pour un agent ou une entité, aussi bien l'ampleur de son activité économique que ses conséquences sur l'inventaire de son patrimoine. Dans le domaine commercial et administratif cette discipline est mise en œuvre par le comptable ou l'agent-comptable, éventuellement assistés d'experts comptables et de logiciels, bureaux ou agences spécialisés. Dans le domaine de l'évaluation, dans le domaine non-marchand (ex : services écosystémiques), on parle aussi de comptabilité environnementale, voire de comptabilité universelle (dont en France avec Michel Veillard)[1] [2]. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] Les traces les plus anciennes de comptabilité datent de la haute-antiquité et notamment de la Mésopotamie ancienne (sur tablette d'argile, papyrus…).
