This revised and fully updated edition continues to provide students with a clear and well-structured introduction to financial and management accounting. This edition retains all of the classic features that have contributed to the book’s success particularly its clarity of expression within a sound conceptual framework.  There is a strong emphasis on the 'why' rather than simply the 'what' and ‘how’.

From the Back Cover:

This revised and fully updated edition continues to provide students with a clear and well-structured introduction to financial and management accounting. The fourth edition retains all of the classic features that have contributed to the book’s success: clarity of expression, the focus on the accounting equation, student activities and real-life commentaries running through each chapter, and the inclusion of the Safe and Sure Annual Report as a real world example of a listed company.

New to the fourth edition:

  • Fully in line with IFRS, but provides comparative analysis with UK GAAP where relevant. 
  • New case study material including extracts from annual reports for companies such as: The Body Shop, Sainsbury's, British Airports Authority, Matalan, Argos, Homebase, Burberry, Ottakers, Carphone Warehouse and BP.
  • Experience-driven conversations between two managers appear at intervals throughout the text,  providing a valuable insight into the type of interpretative comment which the reader may find more taxing. These discussions allow a more candid examination of issues and problems within the subject. 
  • Fully redesigned text to aid navigation and understanding for students, including a unique colour-coding system to make technical material more accessible.
  • Activity-based costing, strategic management accounting, the balanced scorecard and benchmarking are included in the main management accounting chapters.
  • The approach to teaching and learning focuses on subject-specific knowledge outcomes and generic skills outcomes, with end-of-chapter self-evaluation.
  • Questions are graded to test student understanding of chapter content, as well as skills in straightforward application of knowledge, and skills of problem solving and evaluation.

Financial and Management Accounting: An Introduction is aimed at first-level undergraduates on business studies degrees taking introductory financial accounting and management accounting classes; first-level specialist accounting undergraduate students; introductory core accounting for MBA and postgraduate specialist Masters students (e.g. finance, actuarial studies), focusing on analysis through the accounting equation and a questioning approach to problem solving; and professional courses where accounting is introduced for the first time.

The book is accompanied by a comprehensive support package for lecturers, arranged on a chapter-by-chapter basis and comprising the following: student lecture notes on a ‘fill the gaps’ basis; matching powerpoint slides; graded questions to supplement those of chapters, including multiple-choice questions; and solutions to questions in the book.
