This research aims to use (Jacobi) iteration method as a technique to the allocation of service cost centers, which uses iteration equation to perform the complex allocations that can arise when the number of service centers in the organization is large. The relations between these centers are in two directions (Reciprocity), as long as ignoring these relations can significantly affect the accuracy of cost data. The research also explores how Jacobi can be employed through three levels: the first from the perspective of error analysis and the determination of precision levels, and the second from the perspective of determining the reciprocal coefficient of Service Center cost (coefficient factor) and the third from the perspective of accounting use of coefficient factor in the domain of planning, control and decision-making. The research assumes that the application of this method can contribute to a greater flexibility in determining the Reciprocal costs and reduce the measurement error levels that occur when applying the other distribution methods and provides the necessary information for cost decisions. The research concluded a set of conclusions, the most important of which is that the proper allocation of service centers costs according to the proposed method may reduce management criticisms to cost accountants regarding the results of the allocation and the decisions that will be built upon. In light of this, the research suggests benefiting from this method and the resulting information has an impact on the quality of decisions taken in light of it.

The paper aims to make comprehensive view of theoretical frameworks that determent the relationship between dollarization phenomenon and inflation rate and fluctuation. It also aims at analyzing and explanting the  mechanisms on the impact played by one toward the other . The paper, as well as, try to makes quantitave model for testing and determining the nature, value, and direction of  the relationships between those two variables and the capability of the actual situation in Egypt during the period 1994-2016 for reflecting the theoretical situation. The Autoregressive Distributed Lag methodology (ARDL) was used by Pesaran et al. (2011) is adopted to achieve that. The results of the measurement show a statistically significant negative impact on the inflation rate (INF), a significant positive effect of fluctuations in inflation rates (GINF), and no significant effect on the difference between inflation and exchange rate fluctuations (GIEX) In the dollarization index Duration of study.

Financial literature has consistently viewed financial inclusion as a sum indicator calculated at the level of one state or a group of states. It is a value between integer 1 and 0. The current research is but an attempt to adopt a different method through the construction of an indicator that expresses contribution to financial inclusion at the level of one bank or a group of banks that have the joint method. As such, the same indicators, criteria and rates used in the sum framework at the partial level will be used with some modifications or additions when needed. To bring about accuracy and objectivity in the research, we have resorted to the use of the data of one of the important working banks in the Region, namely Kurdistan International Bank for Investment and Development so as to determine the real extent of its contribution to financial inclusion in Kurdistan Region/ Iraq and the abilities open to it to extend in this respect. The research has concluded that the bank, the subject of the research, contributed by a 1% of financial inclusion in the Region. There is also the necessity to adopt such a type of indicators so as to set the real evaluations of the funding role of the banks to serve the society.
