Understand financial accounting principles and techniques, and develop skills to make informed business decisions
An accessible introduction to the subject from two highly regarded accounting authors, Financial Accounting for Decision Makers, 10th edition by Peter Atrill & Eddie McLaney focuses on the ways in which financial statements and information can be used to improve the quality of decision making. Updated with examples that show the pressure facing industries as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the book regularly illustrates the outworking of financial accounting in real business issues. It maintains a clear, friendly style throughout, and is essential reading whether you are on an accounting degree or studying financial accounting modules within other disciplines.
Key features: Updated examples show the theory as it is applied in practice in contemporary issues facing businesses. New to this edition are examples from J.P. Morgan, BP, Airbus, and other prominent companies, explaining how they have responded to pressure on their industries due to the impacts of Covid-19. Revised and rewritten sections on auditing in Chapter 12 reflect the latest thinking about good auditing and the purpose of auditing in light of recent inquiries. Chapter 12 has also been updated with the 2020 UK Stewardship Code. Activities and exercises, many updated for this edition, enable you to reinforce learning, assess your progress, and take knowledge beyond theoretical understanding and into more practical applications. End of chapter exercises cover a range of levels, assessing knowledge of core ideas and developing critical thinking. Key terms, glossary and bulleted summaries provide excellent revision aids.
