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.
