ACC2111S - Financial Reporting I

18 credits at NQF level 6

Entry Requirements:

Minimum 40% final mark for ACC1006

Course Outline:

Financial Reporting 1 covers the second semester of the first-year accounting syllabus. The standard has been set to the level required for those intending to become Chartered Accountants and it is, therefore, an extremely demanding course. Financial reporting is predominantly an applied discipline based on broad conceptual principles which are introduced in Financial Accounting ACC1106, the first-semester, first-year course. Students’ understanding of these principles is strengthened in Financial Reporting 1, partly through their application to transactions and business events with a greater level of technical challenge. Students are also encouraged to debate some of the unresolved or controversial issues in financial reporting.
