This book, first published in 1984, is concerned mainly with papers published in various Transactions of the Chartered Accountants Students’ Societies of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Many of these lectures were given by eminent accountants from throughout the UK, and soon the activities of the Societies extended beyond lectures. The financial reporting and auditing topics are the major concern of this text – they represent the one category of lectures which have a continuing and international relevance and interest.
Lectures by topic: Economics, Business and Management. Finance, Investment and Insurance. General Legal Matters. Company Law. Trusts and Bankruptcies. Taxation. Specific Accounting Systems. Financial Reporting and Auditing. Cost and Management Accounting. Miscellaneous Matters.
