INTRODUCTION
1.1    Background of the Study
According to the challenges that faced firms, and the negative findings of global crisis necessitate from all employees at different levels to award the important role of information that played in the activity of the firm. From here arising the importance of information. Information is the main source of decision-making, so this information must be characterized by a set of characteristics, in order to achieve the goals required for decision maker. Accounting information is one of the oldest information systems known in companies, as accounting information described with a great importance in identifying the financial and economic reality of the firms, and how company's relationships with its environment (Kassem, 2014). In general Accounting information system plays an important role in the management of firms, and one of the most important reasons for the existence of accounting and its continuous evolution is that it provides the appropriate information for both managers' and external parties concerned with such information. The study try to assessment the role of accounting information systems in supporting decisions in Jordanian banks through providing high quality of accounting information. The study problem is to identify and measure the role of accounting information systems in improving banks operation and activities which reflected positively on banks success.
    Accounting according to Nwoha (2009), the objective of accounting is to provide information regarding a firm’s transaction and resources, which should be relevant for making economic decision by persons or organization outside the entity. Whether you are paying your phone bills, balancing check books, preparing your income tax return on managing an international corporation, you are working with accounting concepts and Accounting Information system.
Accounting information system is a combination of people, equipment, policies, and procedures that work together to collect data and transform it into useful information. It is a formal mechanism for gathering, organizing and communicating accounting information about an organization’s activities. It is a system that provides people with either data or information relating to an organization's operation to support the activities of employees, owners, customers, and other key people in the organization's environment by effectively supplying information to authorized people in a timely manner. It is a system, an assemblage of various facilities and personnel, providing information to support managerial decision-making process (Khan, 2017). Its main function is to acquire, process, and communicate data that is essential to the operation of the organization. Nevertheless, it is an entity, composed of various inter dependent subsystems, working together to provide timely, reliable, and accurate information for decision making. It is a network established in an organization to provide managers with information that will assist them in decision making. It is a routine and an automatic system used for gathering and communicating data for the ends of assisting and coordinating collective decision in view of the overall objectives of a firm. The successful accounting information system would lead to the success of the organization in achieving its objectives but the unsuccessful information system could lead to the failure of the organization in achieving its goals meaning thereby an inability to grow and survive.

Existing literature in banking recognize the ‘importance and relevance of accounting information in bank lending decision making. The relationship between accounting information and bank lending system form the fact that financial statements are among the most important sources of credit information available to bank lending officers.
