Module Description

This module involves qualitative and quantitative aspects of financial reporting typically used so as to publish information externally through financial statements.

International Financial Reporting Standards and International Accounting Standards are dominant in this course as they help in understanding accounting concepts since they prescribe how information is to be communicated primarily to the shareholders who are regarded as key users of financial statements.

Throughout the module students will familiarise themselves with the method of measurement and the required disclosure notes to the accounts. The conceptual framework for financial reporting is further explored in this module, followed by an analysis of the accounting regulatory framework and its relationship with the standard setting process.

The focus throughout this module lies within the reporting of financial information for groups and individual entities whilst respecting the applicable accounting principles and pertinent IFRS Standards.
