Accounting literature refers to the procedural and conceptual approaches in the teaching of an introductory accounting course. This book integrates these two approaches by teaching students to understand the why, before considering the how of accounting. The pedagogical philosophy used is referred to as the ‘concepts model’, hence the title. This impacts on both the order of teaching of the topics, as well as how various topics are taught. The impact of the concepts-based approach is particularly evident in the chapters relating to the accounting process where students gain a complete conceptual understanding of the underlying transactions before applying the accounting equation and then only processing the transactions through bookkeeping entries. Students are able to acquire a conceptual understanding of each topic before considering the procedural aspects.
The sixth edition of A Concepts-based Introduction to Financial Accounting is up to date with the requirements of the 2018 Conceptual Framework as well as the current requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards.
It incorporates all of the successful pedagogical features of earlier editions such as learning path tools at the beginning of each chapter, the highlighting of key definitions in the text, the integration of pause-and-reflect scenarios throughout the text as well as and extracts from published financial statements within each chapter that relate to the chapter content.
Global Financial Accounting and Reporting 3e provides a complete companion to financial accounting that takes management students with no previous knowledge of accounting from the mechanics of how financial records are structured through to being able to understand and analyze published consolidated financial statements. The book is global in its approach. It uses International Financial Reporting Standards as its basis and so reflects the rules followed by nearly all European listed companies and by an ever-increasing number of firms worldwide. Global Financial Accounting and Reporting is primarily aimed at future users of accounting information such as managers and analysts. It is therefore ideal for use at MBA level. It can also be used on financial accounting modules for business students at the undergraduate level.
The first edition of "The Internal Auditing Handbook" received wide acclaim from readers and became established as one of the definitive publications on internal auditing. The second edition was released soon after to reflect the rapid progress of the internal audit profession. There have been a number of significant changes in the practice of internal auditing since publication of the second edition and this revised third edition reflects those changes. The third edition of "The Internal Auditing Handbook" retains all the detailed material that formed the basis of the second edition and has been updated to reflect the Institute of Internal Auditor's (IIA) International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. Each chapter has a section on new developments to reflect changes that have occurred over the last few years. The key role of auditors in reviewing corporate governance and risk management is discussed in conjunction with the elevation of the status of the chief audit executive and heightened expectations from boards and audit committees. Another new feature is a series of multi-choice questions that have been developed and included at the end of each chapter.
This edition of "The Internal Auditing Handbook" will prove to be an indispensable reference for both new and experienced auditors, as well as business managers, members of audit committees, control and compliance teams, and all those who may have an interest in promoting corporate governance.
The fourth edition of Economic Indicators is fundamentally revised, updated, and expanded. It covers the most recent comprehensive revisions of the national accounts in South Africa, the consumer price index, the producer price index, various labor market surveys, and government finance statistics.
Each chapter contains more information than before, for example, on business cycles, money, credit and interest rates, budget deficits, foreign debt, units of measurement, as well as various technical aspects, such as the previous-year comparison error, data revisions, and the calculation of growth rates. A new section examines the impact of economic indicators on the financial markets, and a number of political and politico-economic indicators have been added. New segments include one on important international economic indicators, another on the indicators that are examined by the South African Reserve Bank's Monetary Policy Committee when deciding on interest rates, another on the Baltic Dry Index, and even one to prove that the experts can also sometimes get it wrong. All the data that are used to illustrate and explain the various indicators have been updated and, as always, a wealth of data on the South African economy is provided.
The book is an indispensable reference source for a variety of professionals, including economists, financial analysts, accountants, lawyers, industrial relations specialists, brokers, dealers, political scientists, and development specialists. Last, but by no means least, the book is informative and accessible to interested lay people.
