This is a book I could have done with when I set up my first company and no doubt it could still be a great companion when I have brain fade about something simple with accounting. Whilst being numerate, my eyes just glaze over at some of the details of accountancy. This is, therefore, a possible saviour and in its 11th edition it has been updated to keep pace with changes in accounting standards and business requirements.
It is written in a very clear and easy-to-understand manner (even if still, the accountancy-speak may not want to get pushed through my brain’s filter, through no fault of this book). It has everything that a new business owner needs to get going. It can also be great for those who must deal with elements of accounting for their work, as well as being an excellent resource for business students. It is competitively priced too.
There is not a lot more to add. The book covers the essentials of basic accounting and bookkeeping. It helps guide the reader to greater proficiency and even tries to make a dry, technical subject come to life. A great book for those who need it and a good reference or aide memoire for those whose memory could have slipped over time!
It does what it promises and then some!
