"[The book] dispels the mystique surrounding financial statements and explains in simple terms: what appears on a typical financial statement for a company and how statements vary for different types of companies; what entries mean through line by line descriptions; how financial statements are analysed in order to determine the profitabiity and viability of a company; how group accounts are prepared and how international accounting differences arise and are addressed; the special appearance of financial statements for banks and insurance companies and the public sector. Designed for professionals without an accounting background, Financial Statements Explained is a complete guide to understanding financial and management accounting, accounting-related problems and financial terminology." - Back cover.
