The Financial Reporting and Analysis unit aims to develop your ability to understand, analyse and interpret corporate financial statements and financial information. Consideration will be given to the underlying concepts and regulatory requirements that underlie the preparation of financial reports. Limitations of conventional reporting practices and analysis are noted. The relevance of non financial information is also considered. Areas of management accounting relevant to decision making and possible future directions of accounting are discussed.
