Omschrijving Financial accounting provides a vital service by supplying information that decision makers need to make reasoned choices among alternative uses of scarce resources in the conduct of business and economic activities. To that end, accounting measures business activities by recording data about them for future use, by processing them to useful information and by communicating them to decision makers through financial reports. The topics in this course are the administration and processing of various financial transactions, the preparation of the accounts (balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement) and the analysis and interpretation of the financial performance and financial position of companies.
