Accounting for Companies

This course is concerned with company accounts. We shall see how the basic profit and loss account and balance sheet is adapted and extended to deal with this type of business organization. We shall also consider the framework of regulations, legal and otherwise, that prescribe the way in which the accounts of limited companies are prepared and presented.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • explain the accountability requirements imposed on directors

  • prepare a set of final accounts including an appropriation account
