Accounting in Australia: Historical Essay
The history of accounting in Australia is of interest because it provides an opportunity to examine how accounting techniques, institutions and concepts have been imported and adapted to an environment similar to, but not exactly the same as that of the exporters. The book emphasizes private sector accounting over public sector accounting which is a reflection of the available literature but not of the real world of Australian accounting and is divided into 7 sections: * Early Accounting Records * The Financial Year * Corporate Financial Reporting * Audit * Professional Accountancy * Accounting Literature * Biographies and Bibliographies

Accounting Concepts is a new textbook/workbook that provides full coverage of AS 91174 (2.1). It has been specifically structured to assist teachers and students achieve excellence. AS 91174 (2.1) is a demanding achievement standard that requires students to understand and then apply relatively complex concepts. It is based on the NZ Framework 2011, which is a document that students at this level find difficult to read and understand fully. NZQA statistics of NCEA results for the precursor 2.1 in 2009-11 indicate that this achievement standard is the most poorly executed of all the Level 2 achievement standards, with less than 10% of candidates achieving excellence every year. The assessment reports indicate that achievement with excellence requires candidates to use resource material intelligently to link the context to accounting concepts required in the question (2011). A Teacher’s Guide is also available for seperate purchase.
