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 with extensive online resources: frequent signposts in the book direct students to relevant and varied online material, making it easy for them to build on and consolidate their learning
  • Content maps closely to the financial accounting topics covered in the first year of an accounting and finance degree, allowing students to get to grips with the fundamentals of the subject without being overwhelmed or distracted by unnecessary detail
  • 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
