Description

While the sixth edition of Accounting: Business Reporting for Decision Making covers both preparer and user issues of business reporting, it predominantly explores and reinforces the principles of financial and management accounting from a user perspective. Accounting is presented as a decision-making tool for business rather than a record-keeping function. In developing the sixth edition of the text, the authors have carefully considered the positioning of the chapters and the flow of the learning objectives so that the order of the topics presented suits the sequence of topics covered in most accounting courses. This text is most suitable for introductory accounting units that focus on financial decision making in business, rather than the preparation of financial reports. It is also highly suited to first-year units in accounting in business degrees, MBA introductory accounting units and accounting service units.
