Advanced Accounts by M.C Shukla,T.S Grewal & S.C Gupta
The aim of this work is to present to the reader the whole range of Book Keeping and Accountancy in one volume with precision and system as well as adequate details necessary to make the book one of practical utility.
The book differs from many others already in existence in that it deals in a lucid manner with all modern methods of preparation and presentation of accounts, keeping in view the exacting requirements of several enactments, especially the Companies Act, 1956. The book is replete with illustrations which have been graded with a view to enabling the student to progress along from the easy to the more complex points. To facilitate recapitulation and a better grasp of the subject, a large number of test problems with answers have been given at the end of each chapter. Certain portions of more advanced and complex nature have been marked with asterisks and may be ignored by those who do not wish to go into complexities
Audience of the Book :
The book fully covers the syllabi of all the Indian Universities for the various Commerce Examinations, as also the syllabi of the Intermediate and Final Examinations conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India
