Aims and objectives

The aim of Company Accounting is to introduce and familiarise students with mandatory reporting practices with an emphasis on international accounting standards and the Australian corporate regulatory framework. Students will be made aware of different technical methods and the theoretical underpinning of these methods in order to assist them in the preparation of accounting information and financial statements in a form suitable for publication. These concepts will be illustrated and applied through different phases of the business cycle, including acquisitions and trading as a single entity or group of related entities.
