Payroll Accounting 2017 27th Edition

Bernard J. Bieg | Judith Toland

  • Published

Available With :

  • CengageNOWv2


PAYROLL ACCOUNTING prepares students for career success with first-hand experience in calculating payroll, completing payroll taxes, and preparing payroll records and reports. This 2017 edition addresses the latest laws and developments in the field of payroll accounting and covers timely topics on the Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) given by the American Payroll Association. Real business applications and examples demonstrate relevance, and a focus on applications rather than theory gives students hands-on practice that reinforces concepts. An extensive payroll project gives students further practice, either manually or using Cengage Learning’s General Ledger Software (CLGL). CengageNOWv2™ online digital learning solution available.

Bernard J. Bieg, Bucks County Community College

After receiving his Masters in Business Administration from the University of Notre Dame and passing the Certified Public Accountants’ exam in the early 1970s, Bernard Bieg turned his attention toward a career in teaching. He has been a professor at Bucks County Community College for more than 30 years. During that time, he has taught the entire spectrum of accounting courses, including payroll accounting. He has maintained strong connections with today’s business world by serving as an internal auditor for a local non-profit organization. His association with this textbook began in 1977 as a co-author with one of the text’s originators, Bill Keeling.

  • MICROSOFT® EXCEL® SPREADSHEET TEMPLATES PROVIDE ADDITIONAL PRACTICE IN SOLVING PROBLEMS. Students can use this leading software tool to complete Continuing Payroll Problems, the Comprehensive Payroll Project, and other end-of-chapter problems that are clearly identified with an icon in the book. Appendix B, written by the book’s authors, provides detailed instructions on how to prepare Excel® spreadsheets most effectively.
  • CengageNOW™v2 PROVIDES A POWERFUL COURSE MANAGEMENT AND ONLINE HOMEWORK TOOL. End-of-chapter matching quizzes, conceptually focused questions for review, problem sets A and B, and Continuing Problems from the book are integrated into CengageNOW™v2. Blueprint Problems teach students fundamental concepts, while “Show Me How” videos explain step by step instructions modeled on complex payroll end-of-chapter problems. A variety of study tools help students learn more efficiently.
  • GENERAL LEDGER (CLGL) assignments in CengageNowv2 PROVIDE HANDS-ON PRACTICE IN AUTOMATED PAYROLL ACCOUNTING. CLGL is very similar to leading accounting software used in business today. The significant difference between this educational package and commercial accounting software is the simplicity of operation.
  • THE WASHINGTON UPDATE ADVISES STUDENTS OF TAX CODE AND TAX LAWS USED IN THE CURRENT EDITION. Because tax code, tables and laws are frequently changed by Congress after a book has been printed, this resource shows students how they can find out the most current tax code, tables, and laws -- both now and in future practice.
  • “OVER THE LINE” ACTUAL BUSINESS ETHICS CASES PROVIDE SITUATIONS FOR STUDENTS TO DISCUSS AND ANALYZE. These actual, intriguing Ethics Cases illustrate situations where companies either intentionally or unintentionally crossed the boundaries of fairness in their interpretation of payroll laws.
