Providing a wealth of up-to-date local and international examples, Contemporary Accounting provides students with an engaging introduction to modern accounting principles, issues and practices. It covers the requirements of a one-semester course at the undergraduate and MBA levels for both accounting and non-accounting majors, providing a clear understanding of financial statements through clearly identified learning objectives and key concepts. While being easy to read and understand, students will also benefit from the comprehensive glossary.
Maintaining its student-friendly worksheet-based approach to the teaching of introductory accounting, this new edition of the textbook has been significantly updated to better integrate financial and management accounting. Some of the Financial Accounting chapters have been re-written to give the non-accounting manager a better understanding of how accountants see their business while the Management Accounting chapters have been reworked significantly to promote the role and decision-making needs of the non-accounting manager.
This ninth edition introduces management accounting specialist Peter Robinson to work on the Management Accounting chapters. Peter has won multiple teaching awards and brings this practical approach to bear when bringing the role and decision-making needs of the non-accounting executive to the fore. Peter joins the new lead author, Phil Hancock, to ensure that the 'contemporary' is brought back to Contemporary Accounting.
Peta Stevenson-Clarke is also joining the author team as the author of the digital supplementary material. Peta will bring her considerable teaching expertise to the content of the PowerPoints and quizzes that will accompany the text.
