Key Principles of Financial Managements
You have recently been appointed as the senior management accountant in a large listed company, XYZ plc which has divisions in a number of countries and trades globally.
You have examined the financial management procedures of XYZ plc and have had discussions with the board of directors of the company. In doing so you have identified the following key areas which need to be addressed:
