Course Synopsis
This Quality Assured Level 3 Diploma in Accounting will provide students with an in depth knowledge of the topic area. Accountancy is the art of communicating financial information about a business entity to users such as shareholders and managers. The communication is generally in the form of financial statements that show in money terms the economic resources under the control of management.
