This text is intended for a first course in introductory financial accounting. It was updated to reflect current International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). For example, it reflects the recent change in IAS38, para. 98, allowing the use of multiple methods in amortizing intangible assets. It focuses on core Introductory Financial Accounting topics that match pre-requisite requirements for students advancing to Intermediate Financial Accounting. Excluded are advanced topics that are covered in Intermediate Financial Accounting, such as leases and bond amortization. The text takes a corporate approach (vs. beginning with a sole proprietorship emphasis and then converting to a corporate approach); this consistency throughout the book reduces confusion for the introductory student.The book covers all essential topics: the accounting cycle, merchandising, assigning costs to inventory, cash and receivables, property, plant and equipment, debt financing, equity financing, statement of cash flows, financial statement analysis, and proprietorships and partnerships.Additionally, this version of the open text is supported by Lyryx Learning, offering at an affordable price editorial services to develop and adapt the content, formative online assessment, course supplements, and daily support to both the students and instructors.
