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


Professional Accountancy

Accounting Literature

Biographies and Bibliographies

Customer Reviews
