I believe you are trying with "ip accounting" instead of "accounting".

Hello Yasir, IP accounting is

Hello Yasir,

 IP accounting is not supported in any IOS-XE router.  The 4451 runs IOS-XE so the same rules from the ASR1000 apply here since this was the first platform with IOS-XE.  ASR1000 doesn't support IP accounting.  There are several bugs that document this:
Remove unsupported CLI "show ip accounting"
Externally found moderate (Sev3) bug: R-Resolved

ASR1000 Disable IP accounting from the CLI
Externally found moderate (Sev3) bug: R-Resolved

There are no specific documents for the 4451 because this device is very new but again, the same thing applies here.  This is not supported here as well in the ASR1000s.  The replacement for this feature is Flexible Netflow.

NetFlow is a Cisco IOS technology that provides statistics on packets flowing through the router. NetFlow is the standard for acquiring IP operational data from IP networks. NetFlow provides data to enable network and security monitoring, network planning, traffic analysis, and IP accounting.

A comprehensive IP accounting feature that can be used to replace many accounting features, such as IP accounting, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Policy Accounting, and persistent caches.

Thank you guys.
