Level 2 Accounting
Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Peel
Accurate accounting information is essential for decision makers in business. Financial data generated by an organisation or company is documented by accountants and the results are reported in financial statements.
Year 12 Accounting takes your understanding of Accounting to the next level. There will be analysis of real business accounting processes. One of the businesses we study is Rainbow’s End, which we visit to ask questions to gain more knowledge of financial and non-financial information that businesses use.
There are financial statements, analysis, and of course MYOB – an accounting software package used by many small businesses across the world – so you could be doing real accounting sooner rather than later
You will learn to:
• operate a commonly used accounting package to process financial transactions
• prepare complex accounting processing and financial statements for a sole proprietor
• think like a financial analyst and advise a client on the financial health of a business
