Dutch term or phrase: Handelsrekenen/Bedrijfscalculatie/Cost accounting
Kan iemand mij uitleggen wat het verschil is tussen handelsrekenen, bedrijfscalculatie en cost accounting?

Het gaat om examenvakken - handelsrekenen op de middelbare school en bedrijfscalculatie en cost accounting in een hogere beroepsopleiding.

Bij voorbaat dank!

commercial arithmetic/cost calculation/cost accounting
Explanation:
Cost calculation is often part of commercial arithmetic - which covers at least all the required 'basic calculations'.

Cost calculation in itself is just that...calculating costs. Although it is just one subject, there are many 'types of costs' you can calculate...so you can spend a long time on it :-)

Cost accounting is a part of book-keeping and covers the booking and analysis of different costs.

I'll give you points for effort but what I was really asking for is the difference in content of these subjects as they are taught in high school and advanced professional courses.
