Accounting : a very short introduction by Christopher Nobes( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you read the 'business pages' of a newspaper or if you listen to the financial news on television or radio, you will often hear terms such as 'liability', 'balance sheet' or 'earnings'. These terms turn up in non-financial contexts as well: 'he was more of a liability than an asset'. If you invest in shares, manage your family's personal finances, or sit on a committee of the property company which owns your apartment, you will receive financial statements. If you are a manager in a company, a hospital or a school, you will see accounting information often. This Very Short Introduction provides a guide to understanding and using accounting information. Christopher Nobes explains the main areas of accounting work, from bookkeeping and financial reporting to auditing and management accounting. Terms like 'debits', 'pre-tax income' and 'goodwill' are simplified and explained, making accounting a more approachable, understandable topic."--Publisher's description
International classification of financial reporting by Christopher Nobes( Book )

25 editions published between 1982 and 2018 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the growing integration of the international economy the international differences in financial reporting practices have never been so important in multinational business. Recent reforms in International Accounting Standards, combined with the continuing European harmonization, have placed this topic high on the current agenda of both researchers and of business analysts actively concerned with international accounting practice." "This new, updated edition of Christopher Nobes' International Classification of Financial Reporting examines the causes and nature of the differences between financial reporting practices in different countries, charting all the many significant developments to have taken place through the 1980s. The relevant research published during this period is discussed, alongside the effects of the regulatory changes that have taken place. Improvements in the existing system of classification in financial reporting are proposed in the light of the accelerated process of harmonization currently taking place." "The resulting volume is an indispensable source for academics and professionals in international accounting and for all who are engaged in the process of European harmonization."--Jacket

The clarity of style and authoritative coverage continue to distinguish the text in its presentation of topics." "The two-part structure remains unaltered from the previous (fourth) edition; however in addition to comprehensive updating and revisions for the many changes in taxation policy and practice (including the 1995 Budget), and in developments in the literature, the text now includes a major expansion of the coverage of corporation tax; new material on tax compliance, tax ethics, tax planning and earmarked taxes; expanded coverage of inheritance tax and self-assessment; and a new chapter on international aspects of corporate income taxes and EU harmonisation." "The teaching and learning features have been improved to comprise self-assessment and discussion questions at the end of each chapter; outline suggested answers to all the self-assessment questions are given at the end of the text. In addition to the integrated computational examples, the numerical illustrations which previously formed a separate chapter are, where appropriate, now incorporated with the relevant chapter. Annotated further reading suggestions, full references and a glossary of terms are also provided."--BOOK JACKET

14 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its genesis in the 1947 Companies Act, 'a true and fair view' has produced much debate among professionals. In this book, Parker and Nobes bring together the explanatory and often contentious opinions of key international accountants and lawyers for the first time. By including documents that have shaped international usage of that convention, Parker and Nobes provide a useful analysis of the full meaning and effect of a true and fair view. Considered a 'will-o-the-wisp' subject by most academic writers, the concept of 'a true and fair view' remains pivotal in much current accounting practice. Nobes and Parker grasp the nettle and attempt to clarify what international opinion has concluded about this central accounting issue
