Group accounts made simple,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Student's Guide to Group Accounts, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
What I like about my colleague Tom Clendon's book is that he has taken a complex and key accounting topic and presented it in a way that makes it understandable. The use of relevant diagrams, colour and his examples and humour bring this potentially dry subject to life. And it is written in plain English!
The book starts out assuming no knowledge of group accounts and takes you through all the various consolidation problems, starting with a 100% directly owned subsidiary and building all the way to complex group structures and the translation of foreign subsidiaries.
Each chapter sets out what is new, explains the issue in both words and numbers through worked examples, contains practice questions, a mind map, a further explanation in double entry (if you like that sort of thing) and also a technical corner where further tricky little sub plots are explored! This second edition also gives access to yet more additional questions and answers online.
I know that this student focused book is value for money and essential for students studying for their degrees, MBA programs and professional examinations.
