Advanced Financial Reporting - ACCG872

This unit provides students with a detailed understanding of contemporary financial reporting issues from an Australian and international perspective. The unit examines the role of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and of regulatory institutions influencing the timing and content of financial reporting in Australia. Students will examine how a reporting entity must present a complete set of financial reports, including consolidated cash flow reporting. Additionally, students will examine two important accounting issues, the application of Fair Value and the legal and practical application of insolvency and liquidation, from an Australian perspective. The second part of the course builds on corporate reporting by examining the contemporary application of corporate governance disclosures, social and environmental reporting, integrated reporting, and advancements in non-financial reporting. The course closes by examining a current or impending change in Australian Accounting Standards. The unit builds on the knowledge base acquired from earlier accounting units with emphasis on the application of technical skills. The unit also provides students with an understanding of quantitative research which helps develop students' ability to read and analyse financial reports.
