About the book

This textbook introduces the essential principles of financial accounting to non-accounting students, written for an international audience with global case studies and a suite of learning features.

Using terminology which is compliant with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), Financial Accounting and Reporting for Non-Accounting Students covers topics such as the statement of financial position, profit and loss statements, non-current assets, inventory valuation and the statement of cashflows. It also provides a roadmap for performance appraisal and presents the subjective nature of financial accounting and the impact of bias in financial reporting.

Real-world case studies from Huawei, Ryanair and Greggs illustrate the principles discussed in the book and a fictional performance appraisal case study demonstrates how financial metrics can be applied to analyse the effects of new entrants on an incumbent's operating performance. With over 300 multiple-choice questions, 44 extended problems and more than 90 questions to enable deep learning in the fundamental aspects of this core business subject, Financial Accounting and Reporting for Non-Accountings Students is a key textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking modules on financial accounting and reporting or introductory modules in accounting.
