Jonathan Sutherland and Diane Canwell "Key Concepts in Accounting and Finance"
Accounting and finance underpin much business activity, providing valuable decision-making tools. Accounting provides the primary means of examining, recording, analysing and assessing performance and quantifying the financial data of a business. Finance is a broader church which addresses issues such as investment, the securities markets and currency exchange which require practitioners to be conversant in both financial data and the truths which are hidden within these figures. This book provides an accessible and comprehensive guide to the major themes, concepts, terms and theorists encountered in accounting and finance.
