The contributions of the anthology revolve around the financial reporting of companies from the different perspectives of the authors. The authors not only outline challenges and issues, but also present solutions to increase the transparency and efficiency of corporate accounting, as well as their rating and assessment through systematic rating.

By linking the idea to the idea of comparing and classifying alternatives, the reader should be offered a publication that is scientifically sound, but rather as a practice-oriented compendium with concrete benefits in terms of the links between financial communication, accounting, and company management.

Within the scope of corporate financing, there is a need for each company to document its own balance sheet credit rating. Especially lenders need information about a company’s ability to meet its future payment obligations on time and in full. In this context, a financial rating represents an optimal instrument for the early recognition of impending financial risks for every entrepreneur and is the basis for preparing for negotiations with lenders. This book explains the hard facts and quantitative criteria that are important in the rating and is very practice-oriented. An important focus is the detailed presentation of the annual financial statements analysis and the balance sheet analysis in the rating.
