FINAL ACCOUNTS vis-à-vis Financial Statements Samir K Mahajan
CLASSIFICATION OF FINAL ACCOUNT Trial balance proves the arithmetical accuracy of the business transactions, but it is not the end. The businessman is interested in knowing whether the business has resulted in profit or loss and what the financial position of the business is at a given period. In short, he wants to know the profitability and the financial soundness of the business. The trader can ascertain these by preparing the final accounts. The final accounts are prepared at the end of the year from the trial balance. Hence the trial balance is said to be the connecting link between the ledger accounts and the final accounts. The basic objectives of preparing financial statements are : (a) To present a true and fair view of the financial performance of the business; (b) To present a true and fair view of the financial position of the business; and For this purpose, the firm usually prepares the following financial statements: 1. Trading and Profit and Loss Account 2. Balance Sheet Trading and Profit and Loss account, also known as Income statement, shows the financial performance in the form of profit earned or loss sustained by the business. Balance Sheet shows financial position in the form of assets, liabilities and capital. These are prepared on the basis of trial balance and additional information, if any.
TRADING AND PROFIT AND LOSS ACCOUNT Trading and Profit and Loss account is prepared to determine the profit earned or loss sustained by the business enterprise during the accounting period. It is basically a summary of revenues and expenses of the business and calculates the net figure termed as profit or loss. Profit is revenue less expenses. If expenses are more than revenues, the figure is termed as loss. Trading and Profit and Loss account summarises the performance for an accounting period. It is achieved by transferring the balances of revenues and expenses to the trading and profit and loss account from the trial balance. Trading and Profit and Loss account is also an account with Debit and Credit sides. It can be observed that debit balances (representing expenses) and losses are transferred to the debit side of the Trading and a Profit and Loss account and credit balance (representing revenues/gains) are transferred to its credit side.
Concept of Gross Profit and Net Profit The trading and profit and loss can be seen as combination of two accounts, viz. Trading account and Profit and Loss account. The trading account or the first part ascertains the gross profit and profit and loss account or the second part ascertains net profit.
TRADING ACCOUNT The trading account ascertains the result from basic operational activities of the business. The basic operational activity involves the manufacturing, purchasing and selling of goods. It is prepared to ascertain whether the selling of goods and/or rendering of services to customers have proved profitable for the business or not. Trading account ascertain gross profit or gross loss. Gross Profit = Sales – (Purchases + Direct Expenses) The gross profit or the gross loss is transferred to profit and loss account.
ITEMS APPEARING IN THE DEBIT SIDE OF TRADING ACCOUNT o Opening stock: Stock on hand at the beginning of the year is termed as opening stock. The closing stock of the previous accounting year is brought forward as opening stock of the current accounting year. In the case of new business, there will not be any opening stock. o Purchases: Purchases made during the year, includes both cash and credit purchases of goods. Purchase returns must be deducted from the total purchases to get net purchases. Direct Expenses: Direct expenses means all expenses directly connected with the manufacture, purchase of goods and bringing them to the point of sale. Some of the direct expenses are: i. Wages: It means remuneration paid to workers. ii. Carriage (Freight or cartage ) or carriage inwards: It means the transportation charges paid to bring the goods from the place of purchase to the place of business. iii.

It does not appear in the trial balance. It appears outside the trial balance. (As it appears outside the trial balance, first it will be recorded in the credit side of the trading account and then shown in the assets side of the balance sheet). BALANCING OF TRADING ACCOUNT The difference between the two sides of the Trading Account, indicates either Gross Profit or Gross Loss.
