Narrative Chart of Accounts

The Narrative Chart of Accounts (NCOA) is an online 'dictionary' tool that allows users to conduct two types of searches for accounting information:

A keyword search to identify the appropriate account number for expenses, income, assets and liabilities. (E.g., What account number do I use for the office supplies I purchased?)

An account number search to define the appropirate use for a specific account number. (E.g., What does account number 60200 represent on my MD091 Report of Transactions?)
