Message from our founder S.P.Jain
The last few years have witnessed significant changes in accounting and finance curriculum of almost all the universities and professional institutes. These new changes present itself both the challenge as well as an opportunity to the students to improve upon their financial acumen.
Our various books on subjects of financial accounting, cost accounting, management accounting and cost management are most updated and comprehensive to suit the changing curriculums and laws.
Myself, along with my team of key content writers, ensure that the topic discussed is aptly complemented by its application also. You will find numerous solved illustrations along with plenty of problems for practice of the students.
For all unsolved practice problems at the end of the chapters, the solutions are available in form of another book titled solution to practical problems of that subject.
We encourage teachers and students alike to critically examine the book and let us know the areas for further improvement. We shall duly acknowledge their inputs. We also thank the teaching community for their support and appreciation since 1969, when we brought out our first book.
