This is a foundation course in financial accounting. The initial focus of the course is on completing the accounting cycle for a sole trader; beginning with recording transactions, proceeding to the end of period adjustments, and concluding with financial statement analysis. The course subsequently examines the accounting process for partnerships and companies. Students are introduced to the conceptual framework for financial reporting, corporate social responsibility and sustainability reporting. Each topic is introduced by a critical review of key theoretical concepts that are then applied to practical settings.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
