This course focuses on the accounting rules, principles, concepts and presumptions that govern the application of accounting procedures, referred to as the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles or GAAP. Understanding these are of paramount importance, as you will abide by these concepts and principles every time you analyse, record, summarise, report and interpret financial transactions of a business.

Before final accounts are prepared, a trial balance is created. During the time between this being created and final accounts being prepared, adjustments are made. You will also learn about the impact that technology has had on accounting, the accounting software packages that can be used, as well as the pros and cons of using Microsoft Excel to complete basic tasks and how cloud computing can be used in accounting, again outlining the pros and cons of its use.
