The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and its International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), have acquired a central position in the practice and regulation of financial reporting around the world. As a unique instance of a private-sector body setting standards with legal force in many jurisdictions, the IASB's rise to prominence has been accompanied by vivid political debates about its governance and accountability. Similarly, the IASB's often innovative attempts to change the face of financial reporting have made it the centre of numerous controversies. This book traces the history of the IASB from its foundation as successor to the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), and discusses its operation, changing membership and leadership, the development of its standards, and their reception in jurisdictions around the world. The book gives particular attention to the IASB's relationships with the European Union, the United States, and Japan, as well as to the impact of the financial crisis on the IASB's work. By its in-depth coverage of the history of the IASB, the book provides essential background information that will enrich the perspective of everyone who has to deal with IFRSs or the IASB at a technical or policy-making level.
Designed for the first financial accounting course at four-year colleges and universities, Financial Accounting, 2e is unique in approach, in that it not only considers GAAP in its valuation of financial statements, but also considers the economic valuation.
For courses in Financial and Managerial Accounting. Horngren's Financial and Managerial Accounting, The Managerial Chapters presents the core content of principles of accounting courses in a fresh format designed to help today's learners succeed. As teachers first, the author team knows the importance of delivering a student experience free of obstacles. Their pedagogy and content uses leading methods in teaching students critical foundational topics and concentrates on improving student results--all tested in class by the authors themselves. With this in mind, the 6th Edition continues to focus on readability and student comprehension and takes this a step further in the managerial chapters by employing a new theme to help students see how managerial accounting is used as a tool to help all business people make decisions. By providing more meaningful learning tools, this title gives professors the resources needed to help students clear hurdles inside and outside of the classroom, like never before.
Learning Financial Accounting can often feel like learning a foreign language to students. Before students even grasp the underlying concepts of Accounting, they are immersed in unfamiliar terms, and before students fully realize the purpose of financial statements, they are asked to make detailed recording procedures. This early emphasis on terminology and recording can be a struggle for non-accounting majors to see the relevancy, leading to increased dropouts and higher failure rates. This creates a challenge for Financial Accounting instructors, who must balance the need to engage and retain non-majors while fully preparing Accounting majors for the next level. The authors of Introductory Financial Accounting for Business offer a solution emphasizing an analytical approach to Accounting - teaching students to think like business professionals and speak in terms of bottom-line consequences: How will a given transaction impact my overall business? How can I make better business decisions whether I'm an accountant, manager, or entrepreneur? Business leaders are demanding that new graduates have these critical thinking skills in order to handle a rapidly changing modern business environment. Today's students will encounter new technological advances in automated data capture, data analytics, and artificial intelligence - processes that are automating traditional recording procedures. Rather than tallying transactions, students will be required to analyze and interpret data, making decisions early and often and thinking like business professionals. The Edmonds/Olds team's fresh approach and modern pedagogy helps prepare students for their business careers.
Needles/Powers PRINCIPLES OF ACCOUNTING, 12e, International Edition is continuously evolving to meet the needs of today's learner. This edition's new structure is based on research with students about the best way to deliver content in this course! The chapters in Needles/Powers have been organized into the Three Section Approach, which helps you more easily digest the content. The first section is Concepts and focuses on the overarching accounting concepts that require consistent reiteration throughout the course. With a clear understanding of the concepts, you are then ready to experience the second section--Accounting Applications. Here you practice the application of accounting procedures with features like "Try It" and a new transaction analysis model, which clearly illustrates how transactions are the result of business decisions and recorded in a way to show their effects on the financial statements. Finally, you utilize section three, Business Applications. This section illustrates how the concepts and procedures are used to make business decisions. Real company examples are used throughout the chapter to show students the relevance of the material. This logical progression through the material is further supported in the online environment in CengageNOW with the Tri-Level Problem. This problem mirrors the Three Section Approach and connects the sections to facilitate a more complete understanding. These substantial changes will make you a more efficient learner and are designed to prepare you for a business world increasingly complicated by ethical issues, globalization.

This handbook offers a unique and original collection of analytical studies in Islamic economics and finance, and constitutes a humble addition to the literature on new economic thinking and global finance. The growing risks stemming from higher debt, slower growth, and limited room for policy maneuver raise concerns about the ability and propensity of modern economies to find effective solutions to chronic problems. It is important to understand the structural roots of inherent imbalance, persistence-in-error patterns, policy and governance failures, as well as moral and ethical failures. Admittedly, finance and economics have their own failures, with abstract theory bearing little relation with the real economy, uncertainties and vicissitudes of economic life. Economic research has certainly become more empirical despite, or perhaps because of, the lack of guidance from theory. The analytics of Islamic economics and finance may not differ from standard frameworks, methods, and techniques used in conventional economics, but may offer new perspectives on the making of financial crises, nature of credit cycles, roots of financial system instability, and determinants of income disparities. The focus is placed on the logical coherence of Islamic economics and finance, properties of Islamic capital markets, workings of Islamic banking, pricing of Islamic financial instruments, and limits of debt financing, fiscal stimulus and conventional monetary policies, inter alia. Readers with investment, regulatory, and academic interests will find the body of analytical evidence to span many areas of economic inquiry, refuting thereby the false argument that given its religious tenets, Islamic economics is intrinsically narrative, descriptive and not amenable to testable implications. Thus, the handbook may contribute toward a redefinition of a dismal science in search for an elusive balance between rationality, ethics and morality, and toward a remodeling of economies based on risk sharing and prosperity for all humanity

This book investigates the legitimacy of the current Australian Financial Services Licensee-Authorised Representative (AFSL-AR) licensing model, as specified in the Commonwealth Corporations Act 2001. The book rectifies the deficiency in scholarly attention to this matter by developing a new conceptualised framework for the financial planning discipline. It takes into account theories in agency, legislation, legitimacy and the independent individual regulatory regimes in other professions; thereafter integrating this framework with the financial planning theory to examine the legitimacy, or what was found to be the illegitimacy of licensing advisers via multiple third party conflicted commercially oriented licensees. This book makes a very useful reference to understanding financial planning licencing model in Australia.
This book looks at the 23 million registered Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that make up 98 per cent of the EU economy. Addressing the high end of SMEs in terms of new models for SME funding and financial reporting, this merged way of looking at SMEs reveals a 'myopic' thinking in terms of net present value and (future) cash flows generating short-termism and low risk appetite for business. This is not an accounting issue, but rather a preference toward certain financial tools. A segment of SMEs, the ones that seek new ways of funding possibilities, as well as modern technologies (MTFs listing, blockchain, ICOs, etc.) do require, even without knowing, IFRS for SMEs. This book reveals how market conditions impact the financial performance and sustainability of SMEs and also generate innovative policy interventions and financing strategies for SME integrity and efficiency. The authors frame their arguments in the context of the Capital Markets Union, looking at the Innovation Triangle, SME growth ecosystem and business models. They conclude by advocating for closing the circle of financing and financial reporting for SMEs, while considering if new financial models of financing and financial reporting are good for all the SMEs or only for some. The economy is being shaped by new models of financing and financial reporting. Read this practitioners' view to understand the current changes and challenges.
