In its US edition, Principles of Financial Accounting has been the market leading introductory accounting textbook for over 20 years. The Australasian adaptation of this highly regarded textbook accentuates its relevance to both students and academics alike with its effective pedagogical structure, application of accounting information to a wider business environment and clear, easy to understand writing style.

As accounting is the international language of business, with many students expecting their qualifications to open career opportunities internationally, this text aligns the conceptual framework and financial reporting requirements to IFRS and AIFRS. Throughout all chapters, real company financial data and events are incorporated to illustrate accounting processes and systems.

A unique feature of the textbook is the author profile. For the first time an introductory textbook has been written by authors from both an academic and professional background, ensuring students receive a solid foundation for their university studies and the knowledge and skills expected by the accounting profession.

  • Chapter Scene Setter presents an overview to the chapter and will help the student understand the context of the accounting information presented in the chapter. In many chapters, the Scene Setter is based upon the financial information for a real company with a discussion integrated in the chapter
