International classification of financial reporting by Christopher Nobes( Book )

24 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Financial reporting practices differ widely between countries and this has far-reaching implications for multinational businesses. Over more than a century, there have been attempts to classify countries into groups by similarities of practices. With the recent spread of International Financial Reporting Standards, it might appear that classification is largely of historical interest, but this is not the case, for several reasons explained in this book. Christopher Nobes offers a critical analysis of the many previous accounting classifications, having drawn lessons from other

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

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 473 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

An international view of true and fair accounting by R. H Parker( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 257 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
