Introduction to Financial Accounting

Peter Scott

  • A multitude of numerical and real life examples, together with the 'Why is this relevant to me?' feature, engage students by demonstrating why the material is important in real life and how the tools and techniques are used in practice by professional accountants.
  • Written in a clear, engaging style that speaks directly to the reader and draws on the author's wealth of teaching experience to anticipate questions and areas of confusion.
  • Fully-integrated, free-to-access online resources include over 1,500 questions, Excel-based exercises, and video content.
  • Content has been extensively tested with lecturers to closely follow the topics covered in an introductory financial accounting module.
  • Two full chapters and an online case study guide students towards a solid understanding of the critical topic of double-entry bookkeeping, and a closing chapter on corporate governance sets the financial regulatory environment into context.
  • Includes thorough coverage of the IASB's revised Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting, issued in March 2018.
