I have been running Accounting Miscellany for 2 years and I can now define more clearly what it covers. I write about accounting topics that people often overlook or forget about.
Most posts fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Standards and projects I worked on, or that were being discussed, in the 26 years I spent working for the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and its predecessor (IASC);
- the IASB’s Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting
- user needs
- links to some useful papers that you will never find if you don’t know they exist
- history of the IASB and of IASC
- the process of setting standards
- academic research about accounting
- language and accounting
Categories and tags
You can click on the links above to find all posts in that category. There is a clickable list of the above categories at the foot of the Home page and also the Blog page and the About this blog page.
To sub-categorise posts into more detailed topics, I use tags. A clickable tag cloud appears at the foot of the Home page, the Blog page and the About this blog page. The tag cloud lists the tags I have used most often. Clicking on a tag in the tag cloud will take you to all posts marked with that tag.
Underneath each post is a clickable list of categories and tags marking that post.
At the foot of both the Home and Blog pages, you will also find a search engine.
