Product description

From the Back Cover

 Business Accounting is the world’s best-selling textbook on bookkeeping and accounting. It gives clear explanations, in straightforward language, with a wealth of worked examples and a large number of questions and answers. These features have made it for many years the number one choice for both students and lecturers. Literally millions of students have studied and passed accounting examinations using Business Accounting.  In the ninth edition of Volume 2, chapters have been updated to reflect changes in the accounting environment and three new chapters added on the Balanced Scorecard, the Supply Chain and Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, and e-Commerce and Accounting. The chapter on Discounting Techniques has been expanded into two chapters on Interest, Annuities and Leasing, and on Capital Expenditure Appraisal to allow the techniques of capital investment appraisal to be studied independently. The opportunity has been taken to transfer chapters on Container Accounts, Value Added Statements and Investment Accounts to the Companion Website.  New pedagogical features:

  • Learning Outcomes linked to revised Learning Objectives;
  • Activities designed to broaden and reinforce students’ understanding of concepts;
  • Glossary defining key terms and concepts, referenced to the chapter in which they appear;
  • Notes for students to help them with their studies and examinations;
  • Two-colour design to emphasise key points.
 The book is widely used on professional and secondary-level accounting courses. It builds on Business Accounting 1 to cover advanced aspects of financial accounting. It also covers introductory aspects of management accounting suitable for use at all levels up to and including professional foundation level courses and first year degree courses. Students and lecturers choose Business Accounting because it gives:
  • comprehensive coverage of accounting principles;
  • a large number of worked examples, practice questions and answers;
  • clear explanations in short chapters with logical progression.
