This subject introduces students to accounting and financial transactions. The subject is practice based and the transaction section is assessed by input accounting and financial modelling. Financial statements are then examined in detail and the process of accounting for equity and assets is explained. Ratio, breakeven and sensitivity analyses are performed on companies' financial statements to determine how well the businesses are performing. A budgeted project plan is prepared and costed as part of the assessment and the working capital cycle is explored. Microsoft Project and Excel are used for the project budgeting assignment. Financial mathematics and discounted cash flow techniques are used to assess projects and investment decisions. Debt and equity from angels, venture capitalists, banks and informal investors are outlined as potential sources of funding for new projects and opportunities.
