Financial Accounting: An Introduction

 

"This book may become the only financial accounting text an undergraduate student needs."

Rob Jones, Senior Lecturer, University of Newcastle upon Tyne Business School

 

Financial Accounting: An Introduction presents an expansive and up-to-date treatment of an ever-important discipline. Without over-simplifying the subject, Augustine Benedict and Barry Elliott have created a progressive guide to financial accounting which tackles not only the fundamentals, but also includes coverage of new and emerging topics - chief among them IFRS.

 

Comprehensive and rigorous, Financial Accounting encompasses a number of perspectives, ensuring that every aspect of each topic is examined in depth. Starting from the first concepts, the authors proceed to show how issues in financial accounting affect individuals, banking practices, sole traders, partnerships, and limited companies. The text includes real life examples to encourage students to look outside at financial reporting by major national and international companies. Whether at undergraduate or professional level, students will find the authors' inclusion of examples, problems and questions indispensable as they progress through the subject.

 

 

Key features:

 

  • Worked examples across all areas of the subject, guiding students from the conceptual to the complex.

 

  • Activity questions embedded within each chapter, designed to help students test their understanding of core concepts as they learn about them.

 

  • A range of multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter, covering both the theory and practice of accounting in order to meet students' learning needs.

 

  • Progressive questions targeting different levels of understanding, testing various types of knowledge, giving students every chance of success.
