Pastoral Accounting Records in Review
Pages 64

This chapter presents the findings of detailed examinations of the surviving pre-Federation business records on a case by case basis for each of the 23 pastoral entities comprising the research sample. The discussion in each instance includes an outline of the nature of the accounting records examined and identifies, where possible, the factors which appeared to influence changes in the structure and usage of the accounting information observed. An overview of the findings is provided in the form of a summary in each case. Chapter 7 examines the structure and usage of accounting information in pre-Federation pastoralism based on the findings reported in this chapter for all of the 23 pastoral entities involved.
