Technical Note


This technical note gives a thorough introduction to financial accounting vocabulary, elements and processes. It includes explanations and examples of key concepts such as the basic financial statements (Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Cash Flows and Statement of Retained Earnings), T-accounts and journal entries, and inventory methods. It is designed such that students can follow along easily without a professor’s guidance and would serve well as a reference or pre-class reading in a basic accounting course.
