Book Description

18 Aug 2010 0273718401 978-0273718406 5

The fifth edition of this revised and fully updated text continues to provide students with a clear and well-structured introduction to financial accounting within a sound conceptual framework. The book 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 an example of a listed company. There is a strong emphasis on the Conceptual Framework of the International Accounting Standards Board and on the 'why' rather than simply the 'what' of the subject. The underpinning conceptual framework focuses on the needs of users of financial information.

The fifth edition of this revised and fully updated text continues to provide students with a clear and well-structured introduction to financial accounting within a sound conceptual framework. The book 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 an example of a listed company. There is a strong emphasis on the Conceptual Framework of the International Accounting Standards Board and on the 'why' rather than simply the 'what' of the subject. The underpinning conceptual framework focuses on the needs of users of financial information.  

Financial Accounting An Introduction offers:

  • Fully in line with IFRS, but provides comparative analysis with UK GAAP where relevant.
  • Fully redesigned text to aid navigation and understanding for students, including unique colour-coded sections that make the technical aspects of the subject more accessible.
  • 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.
  • Updated terminology and presentation to reflect the requirements of the International Accounting Standards Board from 2009 and the UK Companies Act 2006.
  • New case studies containing examples from real-world companies reflect current issues such as cash flow management in Marks & Spencer, cost control at Debenhams, performance benchmarking at Argos.

Financial Accounting: an Introduction is aimed at first-level undergraduates on business studies degrees taking introductory financial 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.
