Overview

Weygandt's Financial Accounting, 8th Edition, builds upon previous issues by offering a more in-depth introduction to financial accounting with a continued focus on relevant examples based on everyday life. The goal is to help readers further understand the fundamental concepts necessary to use accounting effectively today, as well as an introduction to IFRS and how to use accounting in the future. Kimmel, Weygandt and Kieso present real financial statements and establish how a financial statement communicates the financing, investing, and operating activities of a business to users of accounting information.
