An accessible yet thorough review of the key accounting issues - from balance sheets and management accounting, to taxation and international accounting standards - specially designed for those approaching the subject from a non-finance background.
Designed for students and managers who are approaching the subject from a non-finance background, Accounting for Non-Accountants guides readers through the maze of financial terms, theories and techniques surrounding business finance and accounting, doing so in a logical, meaningful and easy-to-follow style. Completely rewritten and updated for 2013, it includes information on the latest accounting standards and taxation issues, and is structured to provide in-depth understanding in three key areas: annual accounts (including profit and loss accounts, balance sheets, cash flow and reporting standards); management accounting (costing, cost-based pricing, marginal costing and budgetary controls); and financial management (including the cost of capital, working capital, takeovers, buy-outs, taxation and international transactions). Widely used as an introductory text for business and management students on a variety of courses, Accounting for Non-Accountants remains essential reading for anyone looking to gain a solid understanding of accounting principles and practice.
"[T]he definitive handbook for business professionals and managers who do not have a background in finance. ...Numerous examples help clarify the guidelines, and review questions (with solutions!) ideal for self-teaching and hands-on practice help the reader practice what he or she has learned. "Accounting for Non-Accountants" is an absolute must-have for any small business owner who doesn't have their own accountant on staff, and highly recommended for everyone else who isn't a financial expert!"--Library Bookwatch, The Money/Finance Shelf "Midwest Book Review "
