This course develops studentsâ€™ understanding of the nature and
purpose of accounting, and the environment within which accounting
information is prepared and used. Practical and theoretical
exercises are used to master the principles to determine when an
accounting event is recognised, and the system of recording that is
used. The course covers the ethical responsibility of preparers and
auditors of financial statements, and how market-based economic
systems rely on having financial reports that are â€˜true and
fairâ€™. The forces that have led to increasing
internationalisation of accounting regulation are examined. The use
of accounting information for internal financial management is
examined through a consideration of topics such as
cost-volume-profit analysis, capital project evaluation, and
alternative debt/equity financing strategies.Â Budgets are
studied as a means for planning and controlling business activity.
Each topic is introduced by a critical review of key theoretical concepts that are then applied to practical settings.
