BUSI 2002 R - Intermediate Accounting II

Web course

An examination of accounting and reporting issues related primarily to liabilities and equities.
Precludes additional credit for BUSI 2506.
Prerequisite(s): BUSI 2001, and BUSI 2504 or BUSI 2503 with a grade of C or higher in each.

This is the second of two Intermediate Accounting courses, which cover the traditional financial accounting topics as well as recent developments within the public accounting industry. The first course's focus was on the asset side of the balance sheet and the income statement. This course's main focus will be on the liabilities and shareholders' equity side of the balance sheet as well as any related income statement items. In particular we will focus on the accounting for liabilities, shareholder's equity, earnings per share, corporate income taxes, accounting changes and error analysis, statement of cash flows and basic statement analysis. Examples will be taken from practice and pronouncements in order to support and illustrate discussions of financial accounting theory. The two main objectives of this course are to develop an understanding of the objectives of accounting and the concepts, principles, policies and procedures underlying current professional practice in the preparation of financial reports; and to promote a full understanding of the nature of financial statements and the inherent limitations in their preparation and use.

This course will be based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE).
