  15. 15. Disadvantages: • 1) Misleading picture, if consistency in accounting principle not followed. • 2) Constant change in price level tender accounting statement useless for comparison. • 3) Inter firm comparison is useless, unless all the firms are of the same age, size and follow the same principles. • 4) If there exists any Abnormal Period between 2 successive accounting period then it will prove to be a pointless analysis.
  16. 16. 2. Common Size Statements • It is a Statement in Vertical Form in which every item of the Financial Statement is reduced to a common base. This was introduced with a view to overcome the limitation of Comparative Statement.

  19. 19. Disadvantages of Common Size Statement • (1) No Established Standard Proportion: • Common Size Statements are regarded as useless as there is no established standard proportion of an asset to the total asset or an item of expense to the net sales. • (2) Consistency Required:- • If Financial Statement of a Particular business organization are not prepared year after year on a consistent basis comparative study of common size statement will be misleading
  20. 20. 3. Trend Analysis • Trend Analysis is a statement in vertical form where the earliest year is taken as base year and the value of all the items in the financial statements will be related to the base year in terms of % where value of each item in base year will be considered as 100. Trend % analysis move in one directions either upward or downward progression or regression.
  21. 21. Advantages: • (1) Trend % indicate the increase or decrease with the magnitude of change in % which is more effective than absolute data. • Ex. If we say profit increases by Rs. 50,000/- it will be meaningless unless we find by what % the profit has increased. • (2) Facilitate efficient comparative study of financial performance
  22. 22. Limitations: • (1) It will give a misleading picture if consistency in accounting principle is not followed. • (2) Constant change in price level render accounting statement useless for comparison. • (3) During inflationary period the data over a period of time become incomparable, unless the absolute rupee data is adjusted. • (4) There is always the danger of selecting the base year which may not be representative, normal & typical. • (5) Trend % should be studied in relation with Absolute figure otherwise it give misleading picture. For ex. No. of student where 2, the next year they increased to 4. Now trend % show 100% increase but absolutely we get clear picture than trend %.
