Are you setting up a business and looking for support with your financial control systems? Do you need to brush up your book keeping skills? Do you want to know the latest developments in book keeping? Then this book is for you.
Book keeping is neither dull nor mysterious - its rules are logical and straightforward and are readily mastered by practice. "Teach Yourself Book Keeping" is a comprehensive introduction to the principles of book keeping and the practical skills of recording transactions, posting the ledgers and preparing final accounts. This book: explains the purpose and use of books of original entry as the basis of the double-entry system; describes the processes of recording purchases, sales and cash transactions; shows how these records are used to prepare the final accounts - the manufacturing, trading and profit and loss accounts and the balance sheet - to provide accurate financial statements; and, explores petty cash, depreciation, partnership, company law, business documents and the effect of changes in IT. Worked examples throughout allow you to put the theory into practice. There is also a wide range of carefully graded questions and examination papers with sample answers.
