Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
Provides a foundation for students intending to study units in the accounting major of the Bachelor of Business. The unit is also useful for students in other disciplines who wish to gain an understanding of the accounting and financial reporting process. The institutional framework and the fundamental principles underpinning accrual accounting and financial reporting are examined. The elements of the accounting cycle, and techniques of measurement, recording and reporting, are developed from a preparer's perspective, as are aspects of systems design and internal control.
A user's perspective rather than a preparer's is then adopted; i.e., what does the information mean? You will learn how the outputs of the accounting process (reports) can be interpreted and used by management and external stakeholders.
