Book Review: OHADA Accounting, Building Statistics & Tax Returns From Scratch.

July 23, 2019

RESUME
This book is an attempt to bring together the basics of OHADA accounting, understanding how transactions are passed and finally how to build a year-end Statistics and tax returns (STR) in Cameroon. In Cameroon, tax books (mostly in French) try to explain the whole tax system making it a bit too much for people to grasp the subject matter. But in this book I have taken just a particular topic and have tried to explain in as much details as I could. Filing the DSF report is a mandatory legal requirement by companies every year and understanding how to build this report as an entrepreneur, company owner, investor, accountant or manager is vital not only to be able to interpret your company’s financial performance, but also to be able to interpret that of your competitors.
What you will find in this book:

The goal of the book is to:

*Give you a basic back ground of the OHADA accounting system
*Explain to you with examples the OHADA chart of account and how financial transactions are treated based on the OHADA accounting system.
*Explain in details using comments on all the tables in a Statistics and Tax Returns report.

*Explain the calculation and application of Company tax in Cameroon.
*Introduce and explain the revised accounting system (SYSCOHADA)
*Provide a complete 2017 revised chart of accounts (SYSCOHADA)

To make this simple and direct this book has 6 sections, the first 2 tells you about the OHADA system and the 3rd one is on building DSF from scratch, the 4th on understanding the application of Company taxes in Cameroon, the 5th is on the new revised DSF which came into application in financial year 2018, on section 6 we look at the complete revised chart of accounts SYSCOHADA
