More About the Author

I am from St Albans and work in London for Kaplan where I enjoy teaching financial accounting. It is said that every one has a book in them - but it was a suprise to me that the one that came out was on group accounts! I found that the writing process was very creative and satisfying - as I typed away I was always imagining that I was talking to students. My publisher was very supportive in my use of diagrams and colour to help me get my points across.

I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to produce a second edition of the book in 2013 to incorporate changes brought about by IFRS10-13 as it also allowed me to add web content!

Product Description

Book Description

The second edition of A Students Guide to Group Accounts takes a difficult area of accounting and makes it easier for students to understand. The book assumes no knowledge of group accounts so builds the story from first principles all the way to accounting for complex group structures, disposals and the consolidation of an overseas subsidiary! This is a stylish, colourful guide written by a top tutor (PQ's Tutor of the Year) with the student in mind. The book contains mind maps, technical corners and double entry explanations. The second edition has been updated for IFRS10-13 and also gives access to additional on-line questions. If you are been examined on group accounts - then this is the book for you! --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 1 Sep 2009
Format:Perfect Paperback
I am currently an ACCA student, undertaking my Professional Level Essentials papers, including Paper P2 Corporate Reporting. I hold a BA Accounting and Finance degree, and so had major exemptions throughout the ACCA, which also included paper F7. The examiner of paper P2 states that prior knowledge of paper F7 is extremely beneficial for paper P2; however, I obviously had not attempted or sat this paper.

I was left in quite a predicament, as I did not want to waste time studying F7 material when I was not going to sit the exam! The answer to all my problems is this book. It is excellently written from an award winning tutor (who also currently teaches me). The book is broken down into 9 easily digestible sections, all of which relate to group accounts.

It is written in an extremely simplistic manner, which makes studying group accounts far easier and more interesting than using any other study aid.

I can say that anyone studying group accounts at any level will find this resource extremely invaluable as I have done and would highly recommend it!

Format:Perfect Paperback
Tom Clendon has filled a gap for a much needed book on group accounts. It is bang up to date for the recent changes and fantastically easy to read and follow. A 'must have' on your shelf for any accountancy student. Highly recommended also for anyone wishing to update themelves on the recent changes to IFRS 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must-have" 9 Nov 2009
Format:Perfect Paperback
I bought this book to help me prepare for ACCA F7 financial reporting.

It is an excellent book - covers the subject clearly & is very well presented (like Claire Finch's IFRS guide) using colour, mind maps, etc to aid recall of the subject.

An absolute "must-have" for anyone trying to get to grips with consolidated accounts.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved my life! 4 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
I am an Accounting and Finance Masters student and sat an Advanced Financial Accounting exam back in January. Following an 8-week crash course in Accounting, the exam was focused on accounting for subsidiaries and associates. Being reasonably new to accounting, I found it difficult to rationalise the content in the module textbook, but with the held of this book, I was able to pass.

I don't believe I would have been able to understand the complexities, if not for this book. Clendon makes it so simple, you start to wonder why it appeared so hard in the first place. Outstanding.
