Catálogo de cuentas del Libro Mayor


Explanation:
Es así como se usa en México generalmente. Casi en cada país de Latinoamérica se usan definiciones distintas, pero esta frase bien pudiera usarse como una versión genérica. ¡Suerte!

Chart of accounts


Explanation:
El diccionario Routledge inglés-francés da para este término, según se utiliza en finanzas y en contabilidad, la traducción siguiente: plan contable.

Ahora bien si ésta debiera ser la respuesta eficaz, tendría usted que encontrar en su contexto la información que retroalimenta a dicho plan.

En cuanto a la voz hispana Plan contable, ésta figura en el diccionario de Términos Financieros (1996) - Rafael Barandiarán, Ed. Trillas, México. Sólo que Plan contable se atribuye a la voz inglesa "charges of accounts". Pienso que se trata de un error dactilográfico, puesto que la palabra "charges" se refiere a cargo imputados a una cuenta bancaria y no a un plan donde se inscriban proyectos u otros parámetros.

Finalmente, recuerde que el sentido general de la palabra 'chart' se refiere a un gáfico, a un diagrama o a un esquema.

Suerte,

Actually, I ran another search on Altavista


Explanation:
and apparently a chart of accounts is a form, which contains a lot of information and is structured on an industry basis. It would seem to me that this is a "Formulario de Cuentas"... take a look at the link below:
