Appropriation Account 22/39 This shows how profits are distributed between taxes, dividends(money paid to shareholders (shown as a current liability)) and Retained profit (money used by the business to grow(shown as a capital reserve)). Businesses have no choice when it comes to taxation but they make decisions on how much money should be paid in dividends and how much should be kept as retained profits during shareholders meetings. (Most businesses pay out dividends twice a year).

Limitations to Profit & Loss Accounts (P&L) 26/39 Only can show past performance and can be difficult to say what will happen in the future. Window dressing – Some businesses will play with their numbers so that they can make it look more attractive to shareholders. Because of a lack of standards it is hard to compare the profit and loss accounts of different firms.
Balance Sheets 27/39 Legally required record of a businesses financial position at the end of the trading year. It shows a businesses assets, liabilities and the capital invested. Basic function of a balance sheet is to show where money comes from and where it goes. Must contain three sections: Assets, Liabilities and Capital & Reserves.
Assets 28/39 Money owned by a business or owed to a business. Fixed assets will last for more than a year and will most likely not be sold. Current assets – will be turned into working capital within a year. Cash and liquid assets.
Different types of Fixed Assets Tangible Fixed Assets Buildings, equipment, vehicles, etc. Tend to depreciate in value over time. Intangible Fixed Assets Non physical things but they have a value that is hard to determine; e.g. patents, copyrights, trademarks, brand names, etc. Long-term Investments Long-term money that is usually put into other businesses (e.g. stocks, debentures and bonds). 29/39
Legal obligations of Liabilities 30/39 Long-term liabilities – paid under accounts payable money that will not be paid back till after a year. Current liabilities – Money that needs to be paid within a year. Shown in the balance sheet under creditors
Capital and Reserves (shareholders funds (limited companies)) Owners Equity for other types of businesses 31/39 Share capital – (called up capital) Money raised from the initial sale of shares of a business. (NOT THE CURRENT SHARE PRICE) Retained profit – The net profit that a business has after paying expenses, taxes and dividends. Will match figures from profit loss account. Reserves - proceeds from retained profits in previous trading years. Includes capital gains in the value of fixed assets. (This happens when property goes up in value (revaluation)). Depreciation is not calculated here.
Capital and Reserves 32/39 Capital and Reserves are money owed to the owners so it is considered a liability. It is not considered long term or short term liability because there is no set time that it needs to be repaid. It is also considered permanent capital (internal source of finance). Owners of a business own the value of the assets after deducting debt. Many countries require that businesses report their balance sheet for two years. Owners equity = Net Assets – Long term liabilities
Differences in Balance Sheet 33/39 Balance sheets of unincorporated businesses (Sole traders, partnerships) will be different from incorporated business (Public and Private) in the following ways: Sources of funds are different (limited business have more options) No shareholders funds for unincorporated businesses Unincorporated businesses pay no shareholders so they may have drawing accounts to use the funds for personal use.
Uses of Balance Sheets 34/39 From the Working Capital figure, businesses can see how much money they have to play with. Asset Structure lets a business see if they have an increase in stocks which can mean overtrading. Capital Structure helps to see where capital is coming from. Capital Employed helps a business know how much money they are using.
Limitations of Balance Sheets 35/39 Balance sheets do not change if they are not updated; the information or data could be well off. When evaluating stock or other assets it can be hard to predict what the actual value is. Because the real price of something is not known until it is sold. Because businesses run a balance sheet in different ways it can be difficult to compare them. Intangible Assets are very hard to determine the value of. So many things like trained workers are left off a balance sheet.
36/39 Show an overdraft that is repayable after 12 months as long-term liability. Giving higher value to intangible assets. Using lease back and straight selling of assets to show a profit. Moving around paying back loans so that the business can show lower profits before reporting income for tax reasons. Declare sales revenue that is sold on credit as if it was paid in cash. Delay declaring depreciation of fixed assets. Using these methods can hide the real value of a firm.
37/39 Sets of final accounts are necessary for good analyzing (either intra firm or historical). The skills of the workers are ignored. Qualitative factors are ignored as well as ethical objectives. Need to see the accounts of different businesses to make judgments about performance of the business. Because they are public record many businesses will try to hide as much information as possible in their reports. It can be dangerous to use past information to predict the future. Some managers have trouble keeping this in mind.
39/39 Auditing is the process of having outside people go over your books(final accounts). Many countries require this for two reasons: disclosure and accountability of financial matters of a business. Today intellectual property rights (patents and copyrights and trade marks) are extremely important and for some businesses the most important thing they have. Some countries do not recognize the intellectual property rights and this can cause major political problems. Balance sheets are used to help businesses understand their needs day to day. Also these figures will help a business to know when they can expand. Also the final accounts can let shareholders know where their money is being spent. When looking for a balance sheet or other final accounts for a business a good place to start is the annual report.
