This is a refereed, academic research annual that is devoted to publishing articles about advancements of accounting and its related disciplines from an international perspective. This serial examines how these developments affect the financial reporting and disclosure practices, taxation, management accounting practices, and auditing of multinational corporations as well as their effect on the education of professional accountants worldwide.
This authoritative A-Z covers over 3,700 clear and concise entries on all aspects of accounting, from financial accounting and direct taxation to auditing and corporate finance. It includes feature entries on key areas (e.g. bankruptcy law and the FTSE share indexes), as well as recommended web links for many entries.
Advanced Financial Accounting is written for second and third year financial accounting students on accounting or business studies degrees and is also suitable for MBA courses. The book provides extensive coverage of the syllabuses for the advanced papers in financial accounting and financial reporting of the ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW, ICAI and ICAS.
This book contains 35 carefully selected and abridged versions of scholarly financial and managerial research articles by world-class researchers ranging across a wide spectrum of the social, political and philosophical sides of financial and managerial accounting information and practices to focus on accounting's wider role and impact on organizations and society at large. While each article was substantially culled in order to highlight its central findings and its unique approach, care was exercised to maintain the integrity of the authors' work. The result is a collection of readily accessible research including: classics and seminal articles, a selection of more contemporary articles, and recent articles that go beyond the conventional. Thus, the book pushes the boundaries beyond that of conventional accounting thought and research. This anthology will be of interest especially to graduate students since it provides a broad sampling of influential research studies presented in a highly accessible format. It should also be of vital interest to sophisticated practitioners who are concerned about the current state of the accounting world in the wake of the recent cascade of so-called "accounting scandals". The hope also is to help bridge the gap between the practitioners' and the scholarly researchers' Worlds.
This revised and fully updated edition continues to provide students with a clear and well-structured introduction to financial and management accounting. This edition retains all of the classic features that have contributed to the book’s success particularly its clarity of expression within a sound conceptual framework. There is a strong emphasis on the 'why' rather than simply the 'what' and ‘how’.
