This unit has been planned and guided by ideas about what a future accountant or manager would need to know in order to perform effectively in the workplace. The understanding gained in your previous core accounting unit will be extended to develop your accounting knowledge, skills and terminology in the context of more complex financial and corporate accounting issues. In this unit you will only be concerned with financial and corporate accounting, which involves providing of information to shareholders, creditors and other external users using general-purpose financial reports.
