Accounting besides providing data for published financial statements for external users, is an important source of financial information for internal decision making. This book, in addition to explaining the way in which accounting information can be used by the manager in performing his managerial functions of planning and control, also shows the utility of accounting information in solving routine problems.
The main focus of the book is on managerial decision making. The objective is to train the reader in the systems of Management and Cost Accounting and also develop his skills in interpreting and analyzing accounting statements and data. Though primarily meant for students of Management, Chartered Accounting and Cost and Management Accountancy courses, it will also be helpful to business managers who want to hone their decision-making skills.
In the third edition of Management Accounting: A planning and Control Approach, most of the chapters have been updated and rearranged. A large number of new illustrations and problems, adapted from professional examinations, have been added.
