StartUp Accelerator 2014: Understanding Finance & Key elements by Sandeep Gupta (Associate Partner, Ace Global Consulting)_23rd Feb 2014

  2. 2. AGENDA  What is Accounting  Accounting Rules and outcomes  Balance Sheet  Profit and Loss account  Cash Flow statement  Important Ratios  Case Study  Compliances
  3. 3. What is Accounting??  Accounting is the process of analyzing and reporting on the financial transactions of a person or an organization  Why do we need it?? • • • • • To understand the financial health of your business To save you money in the long term To help secure additional funding in the future To achieve long-term goals Statutory obligations  Dual Entry Concept – Each transaction has a dual impact – one debit & one credit.
  4. 4. Accounting Rules and Outcome Debit vs. Credit  Debit what comes IN, credit what goes OUT  Debit all expenses, credit all Incomes  Debit all Assets, credit all Liabilities Key Outcomes  Vouchers – Journal, Bank, Cash, receipts, purchase, sales, inventory  Books – Cash Book, Bank Book, Purchase books, sales books  Ledger – General Ledger, Party Ledger etc.  Reports – Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss, Cash flow etc.
  5. 5. Balance Sheet – Company’s Financial health  A report showing summary of your financial position as on a date  For companies – driven by The Companies Act, 1956 recently replaced by The Companies Act, 2013  Accounting Standards as issued by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India  Important terms Assets : Your thing—what you own. Key Asset classifications are: Fixed Assets Investments Current Assets Liabilities : What your business owes. Key liability classifications are: Owner’s kitty - Equity Share Capital, Reserve & Surplus Loans – Secured & Unsecured Current Liabilities
  6. 6. Balance Sheet As At …………………. Liabilities Amount Assets Equity Share Capital Fixed Assets (net of depreciation) Reserve & Surplus (Including balance of Profit & Loss A/c) Investments Loans - Secured & Unsecured Current Assets Current Liabilities Amount Other Assets Miscellaneous Expenses to the extent not written off Total XXX Total XXX
  7. 7. What BS tells you  Summary of assets and claims against those assets  Information on Companies ability to pay its debts  How the Company is positioned to carry on its day to day business – Cash vs Accrual
  8. 8. Projecting BS  Projecting your balance sheet can be quite a complex accounting problem. The desired result is not a perfect forecast, but rather a thoughtful plan detailing what additional resources will be needed by the company, when and where they will be needed, and how they will be financed.  Using your last historical balance sheet as a starting point, project what your balance sheet will look like at the end of the 12, 24 -60 month period covered in your Profit & Loss and Cash Flow forecasts.  How will the year's operations affect assets, debts and owners’ equity? For example, if you are planning significant sales growth in the coming year, go through the balance sheet item by item and think about the probably effects of assets.  Ex. ASSETS: Inventory and Accounts Receivable will have to grow. New equipment may be needed for increased production. You may draw down on cash to finance some of this.  Now, since a balance sheet must balance, you need to consider the effects on the other half of the statement, liabilities and equity.  Ex. LIABILITIES & EQUITY: Some of the growth may be financed by profits retained in the business as Retained Earnings. Your Profit & Loss Projection will tell you how much might be available from that source. Funds may be contributed by the owners through contributions of more Invested Capital or loans to the company (Notes Payable to Stockholders). Suppliers may provide some of the financing via increased Accounts Payable. The rest will have to be financed by borrowing, which can be: Short term loans (due within 12 months) such as a line of credit or by Long Term Debt (maturity greater than 12 months).
  9. 9. Accounting Policies  Fixed Assets Tangibles 2. Intangibles – acquired/ created/ controlled 3. Depreciation or Amortization 4. Capital work in progress 5. Impairment of fixed assets  Expenditure on new projects and expansion  Inventories 1.
