Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete reworking of an established and successful seller. The only book in the UK market designed for the manager, entrepreneur or professional investor, to help them understand a company or a competitor’s accounts.

  • General reworking of international references to show changes to accounting rules

  • Complete reworking of current Chapter 8 Accounts in Other Countries to introduce the global harmonisation process in GAAP. This is the shift from country by country specific Generally Accepted Accounting Procedures – hence GAAP – to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) which have been adopted by the International Accounting Standards Board. As of 1 March 2008 over 75 countries require the use of IFRS. A list of countries subscribing to IFRS can be found at http://www.iasplus.com/country/useias.htm . The US should seek convergence by 2009

  • Material on emerging markets and their accounting similarities and differences

  • Detailed updating of the case study accounts – currently Johnson Matthey – possibly to use the accounts of Marks and Spencer

  • List of useful websites and accounting links

Synopsis:

The Financial Times Guide to Using and Interpreting Company Accounts is designed for the non-accountant manager, investor or entrepreneur who is expected to have financial knowledge but may not have accounting training.  

 

Wendy McKenzie approaches the project via three key points: What information will I find in these accounts?; How do I analyse the accounts?; How can I use my analysis?

 

Using publicly available actual accounts, the book begins by covering the ‘numbers’ from company accounts then moves on to information such as the financial review and then explains the logic of the accounts. To help with the interpreting of the numbers Wendy shows the reader how to understand issues such as cash flow, what this will tell you about a company, how to consider a competitor’s accounts and how to perform ratio calculations to help with company analysis.
