Annotation

The necessary basis for orientation in financial issues is the acquisition and understanding of the basic links and explanatory power of data on the structure of assets and capital and profit generation. The information contained in the financial statements is the basis for a number of methods, relationships and evaluation indicators that are used in different areas and levels of financial management. At the same time, it is necessary to understand the specifics and ways of applying the most general principles and principles of financial management as well as distinguishing specific issues that address common topics, i.e. operational management, and which have a longer time horizon and are closely linked to the established business development strategy, i.e. those dealing with strategic management.
