A comptroller may refer to a royal-household official who examines and supervises expenditures, or a public official who audits government accounts and sometimes certifies expenditures. In the United States the term is similar and is used as the name of the government office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
In the US and other countries, a comptroller is also another name referring to a controller, one of the chief financial officers in a corporation charged with managing the cash flows of the organization. The term comptroller is pronounced the same way as controller. Whilst comptroller is often seen as an archaic term, it is still a relatively common way to spell the job description.
