Abstract

El objetivo principal de este estudio es aportar evidencia empírica sobre la evolución de los sistemas de costes, y el papel de la información contable como instrumento esencial en la gestión y evolución de las empresas, para lo que hemos investigado el caso de la sociedad colectiva Trenor y Cía., una de las empresas más relevantes de la economía valenciana del siglo XIX, por su contribución al desarrollo agrícola e industrial. Aunque inicialmente se estableció en una fábrica de hilatura de seda y se dedicó a la importación y exportación de productos agrarios, exportación de pasas sobre todo, y a las operaciones de banca, en las últimas décadas del siglo XIX comenzó la producción de sacos, y de abonos químicos, actividades que proporcionaron los mayores beneficios a la compañía.
