Financial Accounting and Reporting, the re-titled second edition of Corporate Financial Reporting, has become respected and widely used over the four years since it first appeared. This updated and redesigned edition is an introduction to financial accounting for business students who need a Â"userÂ" rather than Â"preparerÂ" perspective in accounting. Even more so now than when the book was first published, students of financial accounting in international universities or business schools should be taught to appreciate, understand and analyze a variety of accounting and reporting issues from a global theoretical and generic point of view, rather than just be provided only the Â"answerÂ" prescribed in their country of study. This book provides that modern global perspective. Financial Accounting and Reporting has four key strengths. It takes a Â"userÂ" perspective throughout, whether discussing reporting principles or in the practice of financial analysis; it both offers a non-prescriptive a-national approach and allows an understanding of comparative differences in practices; it is highly international and reflects the trend towards harmonized international reporting.

In recent years accounting education has seen numerous changes to the way financial accounting is taught. These changes reflect the demands of an ever-changing business world, opportunities created by new technology and instructional technologies, and an increased understanding of how students learn. The foundation of Financial Accounting is based on a number of unique principles and innovations in accounting education. The objective of Financial Accounting is to provide students with an understanding of those concepts that are fundamental to the preparation and use of accounting information. Most students will forget procedural details within a short period of time. On the other hand, concepts, if well taught, should be remembered for a lifetime. Concepts are especially important in a world where the details are constantly changing. Students learn best when they are actively engaged. The overriding pedagogical objective of Financial Accounting is to provide students with continual opportunities for active learning. One of the best tools for active learning is strategically placed questions. Discussions are framed by questions, often beginning with rhetorical questions and ending with review questions, and our analytical devices, called decision-making toolkits, use key questions to demonstrate the purpose of each.

Academics and practitioners argue that intangible values have become significant value drivers of today’s economy. Major production inputs no longer comprise of property, plant and equipment, but rather of brands, knowledge and other technological innovation. Based on this notion, information on such phenomena is supposedly crucial for existing and potential capital providers in making decisions whether to allocate resources to a company. This thesis examines the information use and needs of financial analysts with respect to intangible values. The purpose is to shed light on the usefulness of such information from the perspective of one of the primary user groups of IFRSs.
