Throughout "Principles of Corporate Finance, Concise" the authors show how managers use financial theory to solve practical problems and as a way of learning how to respond to change by showing not just how but why companies and management act as they do. The first ten chapters mirror "The Principles" text, covering the time value of money, the valuation of bonds and stocks, and practical capital budgeting decisions. The remaining chapters discuss market efficiency, payout policy, and capital structure, option valuation, and financial planning and analysis. The text is modular, so that Parts can be introduced in an alternative order.

This is another in the 'in Ninety Minutes' series, which offers the reader a comprehensive, but easily read and easily digestible text, covering a specific topic in an hour and a half of study. This well-written book covers a wide range of topics around the overall subject of payroll, from setting up a payroll in the first place, calculating gross pay and net pay, and the vexing matter of PAYE, to the basics of National Insurance. In a readily understood fashion, Robert Leach takes the reader along many paths, looking at the business of new employees starting and others leaving, the essential aspects of expenses and benefits, and company cars and travel. As anyone who has ever received payment for work done will know, the whole process of payroll is complex and littered with extras and complications. This book makes the whole business clear, and allows the reader to follow a logical pattern through the marshy bits. There are sections on share schemes, accommodation, workplace benefits, relocation, attachment of earnings and directors' fees, as well as clear explanations of maternity and sickness schemes and that ever problematic topic, pensions. This is a book for anyone involved in monitoring a payroll system, from new administrators to experienced managers.
