Overview

As more and more companies adopt a global focus, information - especially accounting information - becomes an ever more critical resource, supporting business alliances and strategic partnerships among multinational companies all over the world. Accountants who learn the international aspects of their field have the edge in today's expanding marketplace. Accounting: An International Perspective gives busy accountants, attorneys, and business executives the general, nontechnical overview of international accounting they need to interpret information and make informed decisions. This helpful guide covers the key issues of international accounting including similarities and differences in accounting systems around the world, so accountants can communicate knowledgeably; optimal forms of reporting to various user groups around the world, to help make international financial and merger markets more effective; and international financial statement analysis, to bridge the cultural and business diversity now reflected in transnational financial reporting. Based on extensive research and practical applications, this quick resource is thorough yet to-the-point, specifically designed for those who need an authoritative guide to the basic issues and principles of international accounting. From fundamental differences in countries' legal systems (which most often determine how similar various accounting practices tend to be) to disclosure trends (including some innovative disclosures coming from Europe), Accounting: An International Perspective introduces accountants to the most prominent topics in the field today. This is the ideal way to prepare for an increasingly global economy - one in which the proper use of accounting information will play a vital role.
