About the Book

This book incorporates the refinements in the accounting concepts and practices and reflects on new issues and developments in the field of accounting at the international and national levels. The original structure of the book, i.e. to instruct managers rather than accountants, remains unchanged. The inclusion of a large number of cases is an element of this design. To make the book more contemporaneous some of the cases have been replaced. However, those cases have been retained which we believe provide learning that can be described as timeless. The focus of the book is on how to use a financial statement than on how to prepare one. However to understand fully, one must know how a statement is prepared. Towards this end, the authors have also increased the proportion of content devoted to the mechanics of preparing financial statements.

Salient Features

• The hallmark feature of the book is its 28 cases, most of which have been taken from GSBA-Harvard University, IIM-Ahmedabad and IIM-Bangalore, which provide the contextual setting to the book.
• A conscious attempt has been made to inculcate accounting as the "language" of business among the students and "understanding" financial data among professionals and practitioners.
• Keeping the needs of the students and practitioners alike, the managerial aspects of accounting have been given paramount importance but at the same time it deals with mechanics of preparing financial statements.
