    Accounting and Financial Management is an introduction to financial reporting, and the gateway unit to further study in accounting leading to a major in accounting. This unit builds upon the accounting context, presented in BUSS1030 Accounting, Business and Society, with the aim of developing the technical skills of recording basic business transactions through accounting systems.
