Product Description

Product Description

The Financial Times Guide to Using and Interpreting Company Accounts is designed for the non-accountant manager, investor or entrepreneur who is expected to have financial knowledge but may not have accounting training.  

 

Wendy McKenzie approaches the project via three key points: What information will I find in these accounts?; How do I analyse the accounts?; How can I use my analysis?

 

Using publicly available actual accounts, the book begins by covering the ‘numbers’ from company accounts then moves on to information such as the financial review and then explains the logic of the accounts. To help with the interpreting of the numbers Wendy shows the reader how to understand issues such as cash flow, what this will tell you about a company, how to consider a competitor’s accounts and how to perform ratio calculations to help with company analysis.

2.0 out of 5 stars Limited 8 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
This book deals with the different regulations in considerable detail and, in this respect, is quite satisfactory. It does however fail to cover interpretation other than in a mechanical way reiterating ratios without providing much indepth advice.It is all the more surprising that it received such a ringing endorsement from " Management Today" and is marketed under the FT imprint.

Where is does fall down is in poor editing where there are sentences that do not make sense because of missed words and examples that are not arithmetically correct.Furthermore it explains how to analysis accounts of suppliers and customers by covering the same ground twice quoting the same information verbatim.

All in all not worth the money. If this is the best on offer what is the worst!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just an accountancy textbook 15 April 2013
By CW
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gives a good overview for the non-accountant. It's pitched at a good level, lots of detail and not dumbed down. If you have to do analysis of company accounts I would recommend this book, it is not just aimed at accountancy students as so many of these books are. Very good.

As a private investor I use this book as a reference when i come across something I need clarification on. I would recommend this book to anyone else who would require such a reference.
