Define the accounting equation & discuss how it is related to the four financial statements. Required to show the inter-relationships between four financial statements and with the aid of examples, how the transactions impact the accounting equation.

The accounting equation consists of three company`s accounts including assets, liabilities and owner`s equity. The accounting equation can be summarized as :

Assets = Liabilities + Owner`s Equity

Based on the equation, assets are the total of liabilities and owner`s equity. Assets are a company’s resources—things the company owns. Examples of assets include cash, accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid insurance, investments, land, buildings, equipment, and goodwill.
Liabilities are the amounts of the company owes. Examples of liabilities include notes or loans payable, accounts payable, salaries and wages payable, and interest payable.

Owner’s equity or stockholders’ equity is the amount left over after liabilities are deducted from assets:
Assets – Liabilities = Owner’s Equity.
Owner's Equity is applicable when the company is a sole proprietorship. If the company is a corporation, the words Stockholders' Equity is used. Owner’s or stockholders’ equity also reports the amounts invested into the company by the owners plus the cumulative net income of the company that has not been withdrawn or distributed to the owners.

The accounting balance will balance if the records are accurate. The balance is maintained because every business transaction impact at least two accounts. For example, when a company borrows money from a bank, the company’s assets will increase and its liabilities will increase by the same amount. When a company purchases inventory for cash, one asset will increase and one asset will decrease. Because there are two or more accounts affected by every transaction. Company`s general…...

... maintained because every business transaction impact at least two accounts. For example, when a company borrows money from a bank, the company’s assets will increase and its liabilities will increase by the same amount. When a company purchases inventory for cash, one asset will increase and one asset will decrease. Because there are two or more accounts affected by every transaction. Company`s general ledger is used to keep track of all of its transactions by recording them. Each account in the general ledger is designated as to its type: asset, liability, owner’s equity, revenue, expense, gain, or loss account. Four financial statements are the balance sheet, the income statement, the cash flow statement and the statement of retained earnings. Each of the individual assets and liabilities warrants a brief explanation. Each account (caption in the financial statements) will be discussed in more detail in later chapters. Your task at this point is to achieve a broad understanding of each account and to make sense of its classification as an asset or liability. Cash Represents cash on hand and in the bank, If the firm had made any temporary cash investments to earn interest, these marketable securities probably would be shown as a separate asset because these funds are not as readily available as cash. Accounts receivable Represent amounts due from customers who have purchased merchandise on credit and who have agreed to pay within a specified period or when......

...Examples of Analytical Review Procedures Examples of detail analytical review procedures that can be used in the consideration of risks and/or as direct tests of balances are discussed below. The examiner should consider analytical review information that has already been prepared by management. Examples include exhibits, charts, graphs and similar analyses included in the company’s internal management reports, board reports, divisions or line of business statistics, and similar documents. The key is not to calculate all the ratios possible, but to identify those few key relationships that best satisfy the examiners’ objective of substantiating or corroborating the account balance. When deciding whether to incorporate analytical review procedures into the examination program as substantive tests of balances, the examiner should consider the extent to which the underlying data should be tested. The following list describes key data and relationships that could be used in performing detail analytical review procedures for certain inherent risks. These ratios also may be used as substantive tests of account balances. Fluctuations in these relationships may indicate changes in operating policies, accounting methods, business mix, or other conditions or circumstances (e.g., a change in benefit ratios may indicate a shift in line of business or product mix, or changes in costs or premium rates). To make the most effective use of analytical review procedures, it...

... ANSWERS TO ACCTG 321 QUESTIONS 1. Cash normally consists of coins and currency on hand, bank deposits, and various kinds of orders for cash such as bank checks, money orders, travelers’ checks, demand bills of exchange, bank drafts, and cashiers’ checks. Balances on deposit in banks which are subject to immediate withdrawal are properly included in cash. Money market funds that provide checking account privileges may be classified as cash. There is some question as to whether deposits not subject to immediate withdrawal are properly included in cash or whether they should be set out separately. Savings accounts, time certificates of deposit, and time deposits fall in this latter category. Unless restrictions on these kinds of deposits are such that they cannot be converted (withdrawn) within one year or the operating cycle of the entity, whichever is longer, they are properly classified as current assets. At the same time, they may well be presented separately from other cash and the restrictions as to convertibility reported. 2. (A) Cash (h) Investments, possibly other assets. (b) Trading securities.

...). Methods in which to communicate this marketing imitative to their customers are through in-store advertising, through company annual reports, extensive television advertising, incorporating the new branding scheme, and full page adverts in national newspapers, all advertising medias of which have been used extensively in the past. In order for the CSR strategy to remain relevant and effective, the retailer needs to constantly engage with their stakeholders and managing conflicts of interest. Firms who focus on moral and social issues can adopt a ‘first mover’ advantage by prompt response to stakeholder concerns (Schlegelmilch, 1998; Pratley, 1995; Laczniak and Murphy, 1993). The Marketing and Retailing of Halal Meat (HM) in the UK There has been a rapid growth in the UK in shops and business catering to the Muslim community (who can be identified as another stakeholder) by offering products and services which are produced, or to be used/consumed according to the Muslim faith (for instance, HSBC PLC retail banking offers an Anamah/Shariah Current Account, aimed at providing financial services to meet the needs of the Muslim Community) (HSBC Plc, 2009). The increasing Muslim population across Europe and the UK and has encouraged many businesses, and certainly retailers, to invest in this growing market (Ahmed, 2008) (‘Focus’ Segment: Porters Generic Forces: Insert 1.4). The Muslim population in the UK is 5% but consumes 20% of the meat sourced in the UK (UK Government......

... delivery * Purchase order number * The signature of the person receiving the goods * The catalogue number and quantity Once the goods are provided or the services covered, the Invoice is sent by the seller to the buyer in order to demand the full or partial payment and is due to pay usually within 30 days to avoid accrual of interest and/or late payment fees.  Therefore, we identify the invoice as the bill to the customer, after a sale has been ordered. Also, it can be sent to the buyer prior to delivery of the goods or product. It is considered a request for formal payment and in some cases, the sales invoice might indicate the terms of payment. From the buyer point of view, the sales invoice represents a receipt for their expenditure. If the amount of the items or services purchased hasn’t been paid yet, or has been paid partially. The seller sends the Credit note. This document therefore, states the certain amount has been credited from the buyer’s account. On other hand, a credit note is issued in various situations to correct a mistake, such as when an invoice amount is overstated, correct discount rate is not applied, goods spoil within guaranty period, or they do not meet the buyer's specifications and are returned. If you return goods to a supplier or if a customer returns goods to you for a full or partial credit, a credit note must be issued so that you or your customer can process this and adjust your accounts accordingly. If you have paid the......

Briefly describe the benefits to be gained from maintaining control accounts. List six instances of errors which could cause the trial balance totals to disagree. Name three methods of inventory valuation, and briefly describe any one of them. ‘Without the use of accounting ratios, much of the accounting work already performed would be wasted.’ Discuss the amount of truth in this statement. How can retail stores use accounting ratios to help them to plan future inventory levels? Assess the benefits of double entry as compared with single entry methods of bookkeeping.
