9780061374340: Accounting for Dummies

Whether you’re a small business owner or just want to understand your 401(k) statements, a basic understanding of accounting practices is important for anyone who handles money. Knowing how to balance the books and stay in the black is vital for keeping a business afloat or keeping your checkbook balanced.

If you need to keep the books in order, this new edition of Accounting For Dummies helps you get a handle on all those columns of numbers. It offers fully up–to–date coverage of accounting basics and includes all the tools and tips you need to:

  • Make sense of bookkeeping basics
  • Read a financial statement
  • Manage budgets for a better bottom line
  • Analyze business strengths and weaknesses
  • Evaluate accounting methods and business structures

John Tracy, Certified Public Accountant and former professor of accounting, presents everything you need to know to master modern accounting. Packed with practical guidance and real–world scenarios, this handy guide covers it all:

  • Making and reporting profit
  • Reporting a company’s financial condition
  • Preparing financial reports
  • Budgeting profit and cash flow
  • Choosing and implementing accounting methods
  • How to read a financial report
  • Audits, accounting fraud, and audit failure
  • How to decipher accounting jargon
  • And savvy ways businesses use accounting

From balance sheets, to income statements, to inventory, almost every aspect of modern business requires basic accounting techniques. You’ll learn it all here. Plus, this new edition covers the impact of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002, recent accounting fraud scandals, the establishment of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, and the new financial reporting standards for stock options and financial derivatives.

From the Author:

Accounting For Dummies makes accounting easy for everyone!
This book works for business people, students, and everyday people such as: managers, owners, lenders, investors, bookkeepers, accounting employees, and entrepreneurs. Accounting For Dummies will help improve your grip on financial reports, profit behavior, and cash flow. You'll no longer be intimidated by accountants! It explains accounting information to everyone - from professionals to lay persons serving on their church finance committees.

Accounting For Dummies is very user-friendly and avoids financial jargon. It empowers the reader to make sense of financial statements and provides an easy reference format for specific questions.

I am a Professor of Accounting at the College of Business and Administration at the University of Colorado at Boulder and have written two other books on finance. I have had many years experience explaining accounting and financial statements to managers and investors. I welcome comments or questions via my e-mail address - tracyj@colorado.edu.
