AYN417 Corporate Accounting

A large number of entities are companies rather than, for example, sole traders or partnerships. Accordingly, a significant amount of the work you will undertake as a practitioner will involve accounting for companies. In this context, accountants are required to interpret and apply accounting standards, and other statutory requirements governing the accounting procedures reflected in the content of a company's financial reports. Accountants are also required to integrate and apply academic accounting knowledge to solving problems that arise in practice. This unit contributes to the knowledge and skills you will need to prepare financial reports for companies.This unit builds on the prerequisite unit by applying accounting principles to complex company accounting issues. It also provides a foundation for subsequent units, which develop critical analytical skills through an examination of theoretical accounting issues, accounting regulation and practice.
