Accounting as a source of Information for financiers DF2-162-I
The general accounts are a useful tool for the company and are intended as a source of information. This information has to follow a set of rules and principles and must be recorded using the principle of double-entry bookkeeping. The finance department’s guiding principle is to "maximize the long-term economic value for shareholders." To generate economic value in the long term, the returns obtained from management of the assets in the normal course of business must exceed the financial cost of the resources funding them.
This technical note explains how concepts of accounting are particularly useful to obtain certain financial information. It talks about general accounting and its guiding principles, the profit and loss account, the balance sheet, accounting statements, liabilities, equity, assets, accounting records, depreciation, provisions, investment and financing decisions and finally cash flows, weighted average cost of capital and discounted cash flow.Academic Area:Financial Accounting | Finance
Bonds: Long-term Liabilities CF2-105-I-M
This tutorial contemplates the use of bonds as financial instruments. Through the use of a depreciation calculator and a practical case example students will analyze depreciation schedules and journal entries in order to better understand this financing option.
This tutorial is separated into four sections:

- a test with multiple choice questions reflecting upon both the time value of money and bond theory
- a bond calculator allowing for the calculation of bond depreciation schedules and associated journal entries
