Leo’s eleventh edition of Company Accounting has been updated to reflect the various and ongoing reforms as a result of Australia’s adoption of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). This edition provides an authoritative and reliable overview of the various changes required within the framework and a selection of key accounting standards governing corporate entities.
The text provides students with a comprehensive overview of the practice and principles of company accounting and helps them develop the practical grounding to reinforce their understanding. The 11th edition presents essential ‘must know’ information on accounting for a corporate entity and the requirements for externally disclosing the financial position of the entity.
Available as a full colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code included, this title enables you to master concepts and succeed in assessment by taking the roadblocks out of self-study, with features designed so you get the most out of learning.
