  8. 8. <ul><li>Tax </li></ul><ul><li>Preparation of income tax returns and anticipating the tax effects of business transactions and structuring them in such a way as to minimize the income tax burden. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Basic Accounting Principle <ul><li>Business Entity Concept </li></ul><ul><li>The accountant keeps all of the business transactions of a sole proprietorship separate from the business owner's personal transactions. For legal purposes, a sole proprietorship and its owner are considered to be one entity, but for accounting purposes they are considered to be two separate entities. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Money Measurment Concept Economic activity is measured in U.S. dollars, and only transactions that can be expressed in U.S. dollars are recorded. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of this basic accounting principle, it is assumed that the dollar's purchasing power has not changed over time. As a result accountants ignore the effect of inflation on recorded amounts. For example, dollars from a 1960 transaction are combined (or shown with) dollars from a 2009 transaction. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The Cost Concept The widely used principle of accounting for assets at their original cost to the current owner. </li></ul><ul><li>Going Concern An assumption by accountants that a business will operate in the foreseeable future unless specific evidence suggests that this is not a reasonable assumption. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Materiality Concept The significance of an item should be considered when it is reported. An item is considered significant when it would affect the decision of a reasonable individual. </li></ul><ul><li>Consistency Concept </li></ul><ul><li>It means that the company uses the same accounting principles or rules from year to year. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>The Accrual Concept Businesses are required to record and report revenue at the time it is earned and realized by the business, not when the cash for the revenue is received by the business.  This method is known as accrual basis accounting. The purpose of this principle is to actually show what work has been completed and not what is to be done in the future. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Time-period Concept implies that the economic activities of an enterprise can be divided into artificial time periods and can be genarted on time like yearly </li></ul><ul><li>Conservatism Concept Assets and revenue should be stated at their lowest values on the other side liabilites and expenses should be stated at their highest value. </li></ul><ul><li>Cash Base Accounting Transactions are recorded when cash is received or paid out </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Disclosure Concept The accounting records of a business must be disclosed so that judgment about the financial status of a business can be easily made.  However, the disclosure of accounting and financial information should not cause the business to accrue unreasonable expenses or cause erroneous opinions. </li></ul><ul><li>Matching Concept This principle allows for real time analysis of the expenses and revenues. Using this principle will show just how well the business has done financially and how effective it was.  Somewhat like the Accrual Principle, expenses in this case can only be recorded and reported when revenue is to which such expenses are related was earned. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Revenue Recognition Concept Requires companies to record when revenue is realized or realizable and earned, not when cash is received. This way of accounting is called accrual basis accounting </li></ul>
  17. 17. Introduction to Financial Statements <ul><li>The piece of information send to investors to analyze the condition of business </li></ul><ul><li>Balance Sheet </li></ul><ul><li>Describes where the enterprise stands at a specific date. </li></ul><ul><li>Income Statement </li></ul><ul><li>Describes results of company`s operations ( income and expenses and as a result profit n loss ) for a particular period of time. </li></ul><ul><li>Cash flow statement </li></ul><ul><li>Describes how cash position of a company changed over a particular period of time. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Balance Sheet <ul><li>The balance sheet reports the assets, liabilities, and shareholder equity of the company. It is constructed using the following information: </li></ul><ul><li>Balances of all asset accounts such cash, accounts receivable, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Balances of all liability accounts such as accounts payable, notes, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Capital stock balance </li></ul><ul><li>Retained earnings, obtained from the statement of retained earnings </li></ul>

  21. 21. Income Statement <ul><li>The income statement reports revenues, expenses, and the resulting net income. It is prepared by transferring the following ledger account balances, taking into account any adjusting entries that have been or will be made: </li></ul><ul><li>Revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Expenses </li></ul><ul><li>Capital gains or losses </li></ul>

  23. 24. Cash Flow Statement <ul><li>The cash flow statement explains the reasons for changes in the cash balance, showing sources and uses of cash in the operating, financing, and investing activities of the firm. Because the cash flow statement is a cash-basis report, it cannot be derived directly from the ledger account balances of an accrual accounting system. Rather, it is derived by converting the accrual information to a cash-basis using one of the following two methods: </li></ul><ul><li>Direct method: cash flow information is derived by directly subtracting cash disbursements from cash receipts. </li></ul><ul><li>Indirect method: cash flow information is derived by adding or subtracting non-cash items from net income. </li></ul>

  25. 26. Statement of Owner's Equity <ul><li>The Statement of Owner's Equity shows the change in owner's equity during a given time period. It lists the owner equity balance at the beginning of the period, additions and subtractions to the balance, and the ending balance. Additions come from owner investments and income; subtractions from owner withdrawals and losses. </li></ul>

  27. 28. Double Entry System <ul><li>Accounting information is based on the double entry system. </li></ul><ul><li>An account is an arrangement of transactions affecting a given asset, liability or other element. </li></ul><ul><li>Under this system, the two-sided effect of a transaction is recorded in the appropriate accounts. </li></ul><ul><li>The recording is done by means of a “ debit-credit ” convention (set of rules) applying to all accounts. </li></ul>
  28. 29. Types of Accounts <ul><li>Assets </li></ul><ul><li>Expense </li></ul><ul><li>Darwing </li></ul><ul><li>Revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Capital </li></ul><ul><li>Liability </li></ul>

  32. 33. The Accounting Equation <ul><li>Assets = Liabilities + Owners’ Equity </li></ul><ul><li>I t is relatively easy to understand the formula and how it works. The worth of a business's liabilities is the total amount of money or resources the business paid out in order to acquire its assets. The worth of a business's assets is the total amount of money or products in possession of the business owner. The accounting equation is represented: worth of assets - worth of liabilities = total equity. The equation must be in balance after every recorded transaction in the system. </li></ul>
  33. 34. <ul><li>For an example of the accounting equation let us consider ABC Cellular Phones. Last month the following transactions took place: </li></ul><ul><li>the owner invested $3,000 into his business </li></ul><ul><li>paid $500 for his bills for the month </li></ul><ul><li>received $1,000 from customer for purchases. </li></ul><ul><li>The equation would look like this: </li></ul><ul><li>assets ($3,000 + $1,000) - liabilities ($500) = $3,500 total equity. </li></ul>

  67. 68. Depreciation Defination <ul><li>Depreciation is the allocation of the tangible plant asset to expense in the periods in which services are received from the asset. </li></ul><ul><li>The basic purpose of depreciation is to achieve the matching principle. That is, to offset the revenue of an accounting period with the costs of the good and services being consumed in the effort to generate that revenue </li></ul>
  68. 69. Causes of deprecation <ul><li>There are two main causes of depreciation </li></ul><ul><li>Physical deterioration </li></ul><ul><li>Physical deterioration of plant asset results from use, as well as from exposure to sun , wind , and other climatic factors. When the plant asset is carefully maintained, it is not uncommon for the owner to claim that the asset as good as new . Such statement are not literally true . Although a good policy may greatly lengthen the useful life of the machine , every machine eventually reaches the point at which it must be discarded in brief the making of repair does not lessen the need for recognition of depreciation. </li></ul>
  69. 70. <ul><li>Obsolescence </li></ul><ul><li>The term obsolescence means the process of becoming out of date or obsolete. An aeroplane , for example , may become obsolete even though it is in excellent physical condition; it become obsolete because better plans of superior designs and performance have became available. The usefulness of plant assets may also be reduced because the rapid growth of a company renders such assets inadequate. Inadequacy of a plant asset may necessitate replacement with the larger unit even though the asset is in good physical condition. Obsolescence and inadequacy are often closely associated ; both relate to the opportunity for economical and efficient use of an asset rather then to its physical condition. </li></ul>
  70. 71. Depreciation process <ul><li>Deprecation is a process of cost allocation , not a process of valuation. Accounting records do not attempt to show the current market values of plant assets .the market value of a building ,for example , may increase during some accounting periods with in the building useful life the recognition of deprecation expense continuous, how ever, without regard to such temporary increase in market value. Accountants recognize that the building will render useful services only for a limited no of years , and that the full cost of the building should be systematically allocated to expense during these years. </li></ul>
  71. 72. The Concept of Depreciation The portion of an asset’s utility that is used up must be expensed in the period used. Cash (credit) Fixed Asset (debit) On date when initial payment is made . . . The asset’s usefulness is partially consumed during the period. At end of period . . . Accumulated Depreciation (credit) Depreciation Expense (debit)
  72. 73. Accumulated depreciation <ul><li>Accumulated depreciation is a contra asset account representing that portion of the assets cost that has already been allocated to expense </li></ul>
  73. 74. Methods of computing depreciation <ul><li>There are several alternative methods of computing depreciation </li></ul><ul><li>Straight line method </li></ul><ul><li>The simplest and most widely used method of computing depreciation is straight line method. Under this method equal portion of the assets cost is recognized as depreciation expense in each period of asset’s useful life. </li></ul>
  74. 75. <ul><li>Unit-of-output method </li></ul><ul><li>For certain kind of assets the more equitable allocation of the cost can be obtain by dividing the cost by the estimated units of output rather then by the estimated years of the useful life </li></ul><ul><li>Accelerated deprecation methods </li></ul><ul><li>The term accelerated depreciation means recognition of relatively large amounts of depreciation early years of use and reduced amount in the later years. </li></ul>
  75. 76. <ul><li>Sum of years digits methods </li></ul><ul><li>Another form of accelerated depreciation is the sum-of-the-years-digits methods, sometimes called SYD. In this method, the depreciation rate is stated as a fraction, which get smaller every year. These “shrinking fractions” determine the percentage of the asset’s depreciable account charged to depreciable expense every year. </li></ul>
  76. 77. <ul><li>Fixed-percentage-of-declining-balance method </li></ul><ul><li>The most widely used form of accelerated depreciation is the fixed-percentage –of-declining-balance method. The method involves computing and accelerated depreciation rate which is a specified percentage of the straight-line depreciation rate. It is computed each year by applying this accelerated depreciation rate to the remaining book value </li></ul>
  77. 78. <ul><li>revenues </li></ul><ul><li>Increases in the enterprise’s assets as a result of profit‑oriented activities. </li></ul><ul><li>expenses </li></ul><ul><li>Past, present, or future reductions in cash required to generate revenues. </li></ul><ul><li>financial statement A declaration of information believed to be true </li></ul><ul><li>communicated in monetary terms. </li></ul>
  78. 79. <ul><li>Assets - Anything that a business owns that has monetary value. </li></ul><ul><li>c urrent Assets - Cash and other assets readily converted into cash.
