The 9th Edition of our highly regarded accounting text is here!

Financial Accounting continues to provide a classic, solid foundation, while also including a modern and fresh teaching approach that helps students understand the complexities of accounting.

The text is renowned for a clear, straightforward approach to the study of accounting for majors students.

The new edition has updated content including a focus on ethical issues facing the accounting profession, as well as discussing topical issues such as big corporation data, highlighted in boxes in various chapters.

The new edition also offers updates to standards to ensure content is reflective of current contemporary accounting practises, as well as a focus on the skills for employability.


Decision guidelines. Decision guidelines explain why the accounting concepts addressed in the chapter are important to making decisions in a business setting. The left-hand side of the Decision guidelines table explains in simple terms the decision or action asked of the student, while the right-hand side shows the accounting topics that will help facilitate those decisions.

Keep it consistent. Consistent examples rather than learn about a new company each time an example is presented; this text provides two sets of company data (for Smart Touch and Greg’s Tunes) that are carried through the in-chapter examples. As a result, you gain a sense of familiarity with the context of these examples and can focus your energy on learning the accounting principles in question

Concepts in Action. Real world examples with accompanying questions. 

Learning Objectives. Listed at the beginning of each chapter. Each Learning Objective links to an A-level heading.

Student Success Tips. A bulleted summary of key concepts, with a list of study ‘tools’ to help students recall these concepts.

Try It! Boxes. Put the concepts in context. Try It! boxes Each Try It! gives students opportunities to apply the concept they’ve just learned by reflecting on or completing an accounting problem.

Sustainability in Action. Sustainability in action boxes in most chapters show that sustainability issues are integral aspects of accounting. Each example is accompanied by relevant questions.
