This course aims to inform students of the nature of accounting systems (both manual and computerised), through the manual processing of transactions (journals, ledgers, trial balance) and by using industry-leading MYOB accounting software.
In this course we will introduce you to the complex world of commerce. We start by investigating the commercial and accounting environment and the need for high quality financial information for business owners/managers to make commercial decisions. We introduce the common financial accounting (external) reports (balance sheet, income statement, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows), which are used for decision-making purposes. The information provided in these reports is captured in an accounting system (either manual or computerised), which is designed to measure business activities, record the data and summarise it. Our coverage of the manual accounting process is comprehensive (transaction analysis and recording through to preparation and presentation of financial reports). We will then build upon your knowledge by studying the use of a computerised accounting system (MYOB AccountRight Enterprise v. 19). This course is designed to provide you with a solid foundation for further study in PDC5112 and PDC5113.
On successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
- describe and discuss the commercial and accounting environment, the assumptions which underlie the accounting process and the current regulatory processes in operation
- analyse business transactions and describe their effect on the accounting equation, record business transactions, process period end adjustments and prepare financial reports consistent with the relevant professional and statutory requirements
- use the accounting software MYOB AccountRight Enterprise v. 19, to create a company file, an accounts list and the tax codes for GST and to record business transactions and events.
