Reading a balance sheet /types of capital

  1. Ending capital / Network /owners equity
  2. Working capital (WC)
  3. Current Ratio or working capital Ratio
  4. Quick /Acid test ratio
  5. Rate of return on capital
  6. Borrowed capital
  7. Capital employed

Types of Capital

The capital in the business can be classified as follows

  • Capital Owned/Owner’s Equity/Capital invested; – this is the capital that the owner of the business has contributed to the business. It is the Net capital/Closing capital of the business (C = A – L)

OR ENDING CAPITAL = BC+NP+INV-DRAWINGS-LOSSES

  • Borrowed capital: – They are the long term liabilities of the business.
  • Working capital: – these are resources in the business that can be used to meet the immediate obligation of the business. It is the difference between the total current assets and total current liabilities    

Working Capital = Total Current Assets – Total Current Liabilities

  • CURRENT RATIO

   CURRENT ASSETS/CURRENT LIABILITIES

  • QUICK /ACID  TEST RATIO

 Current assets –closing stock

      CLOSING STOCK

  • Rate of return on capital

 Net profit  X100

  CAPITAL

  • Capital employed: – these are the resources that has been put in the business for a long term. i.e.

     Capital Employed = Total Fixed assets + Working Capital

Or

     Capital employed = Ending Capital  + Long term liabilities

Required:

  1. Record the above transactions in ledger accounts and balance off the accounts.
  2. Extract a trial balance as at 31st December, 2015.                                   (12 marks)

Limitations  of a trial balance or errors not disclosed by atrial balance or errors not affecting the agreement of atrial balance

Even when the trial balance totals are equal, it does not mean that there are no errors made in the ledgers. This is because there are some errors that do not affect the trial balance.

A trial balance only assures the book keeper that the total of debit entries is equal to total credit entries.

 The errors that do not affect the trial balances are;

                 I Error of total omission; This occurs when a transaction takes place and nothing about it is recorded in the books of accounts i.e. it is completely omitted such that neither a credit nor a debit entry is made in the ledgers.

             II  Error of original entry; this occurs where both the debit and credit entries are made using similar but erroneous figures. As the wrong amount is recorded in the two accounts.

         III  Error of commission; This occurs where double entry is completed but in the wrong persons accounts especially due to a confusion in names e.g. a debit entry of shs.2000 was made in Otieno’s account instead of Atieno’s account.

      IV  Compensating errors; These are errors whose effects cancel out e.g. over debiting debtors account by sh.300 and under debiting cash account by sh.300.

       V  Complete reversal of entries; This occurs where the account to be debited is credited and the account to be credited is debited e.g. the sale of goods to Lydia on credit may be recorded as follows;

Dr.sales a/c

Cr.Lydia a/c              instead of

Dr.Lydia a/c

Cr.sales a/c

  VI    Error of principle; This is where a transaction is recorded in the wrong account of a different class from the correct one e.g. repairs of machinery was debited in the machinery instead of debiting the repairs account.

Errors that may cause a trial balance not to balance or agree

  1. Partial omission of a transaction was recorded on only one account i.e. a debit or a credit entry might have been omitted in one of the affected accounts.
  2. Transferring (posting) a wrong balance to a trial balance.
  3. Different amounts for the same transaction might have been entered in the accounts(Amount Dr. different from amount cr)
  4. Failure to post a balance to the trial balance or omission of a balance from the trial balance.
  5. Posting a balance to the wrong side of the trial balance
  6. Recording a transaction on the same side of the affected account
  7. Arithmetic mistakes might  have been made when balancing the ledger accounts
  8. Arithmetic errors in balancing the trial balance

Types of Ledger Accounts

  1. Real Account –  This are accounts for tangible /visible assets e.g cash, furniture, land, buildings, machinery
  2. Personal account – This are accounts for debtors and creditors

They are prepared at the end of a firms trading period to determine the profit and losses of the business, and also to show the financial position of the business at a given time.

4   The balance sheet.

DEFINITION OF A TRADING OR ACCOUNTING PERIOD

A trading period is the duration through which the trading activities are carried out in the business before it decides to determine it performances in terms of profit or loss and viability. The period may be one week,  a month, six months or even a year depending on the type of the firm and the operations.

At  the end of the accounting period, the following takes place;

  • All the accounts are balanced off
  • A trial balance is extracted
  • Profit or loss is determined
  • The balance sheet is prepared

Determining the Gross profit or loss of a business

When a business sells its stock above the buying price or cost of  the stock, it makes a gross profit, while if it sells below it makes a gross  loss.

GP = NET SALES –COST OF SALES (BUYING PRICE)

In calculating the gross profit, the following adjustments are put in place

  • Return inwards/Sales return: –

These are goods that have  been returned to the business after being sold and  therefore they reduce the value of sales.

            Therefore Net sales = Sales – Return inwards

  • Return outwards/purchases return

 These are goods that had been bought from the suppliers  and have been returned to them

. It reduces the purchases and is therefore subtracted from the purchases to obtain the net purchases.

  • Carriage inwards/Carriage on purchases/Transport in

This is the cost incurred by the Trader in transporting the goods from suppliers up to their premises  . It is treated as part of the purchases, and therefore added to purchases to determine the actual value of purchases/Net purchases as goods  have not been sold.

Therefore Net Purchases = Purchases + Carriage inwards – Return Outwards

  • Opening stock  is the value of stock of goods in the firm at the beginning of the trading period,
  •  Closing stock  is the value of  stock of the goods not sold at the end of the trading period

Gross profit is therefore calculated as follows;

      Gross Profit = Sales – Return inwards – (Opening stock + Purchases + carriage inwards – Return outwards – Closing stock)

      Or

      Gross profit = Net sales – Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)

      COGS = Opening Stock + Net Purchases – Closing stock

Trading Account

This is prepared by the business to determine the gross profit/loss during that trading period

It takes the following format;

Importance of a Trading account

  1. It is used to determine the gross profit/loss for a given trading period for appropriate decision making by the management.
  2. It is used in determining the cost of goods that was sold during that particular accounting period.
  3. It is used to reveal the volume of turnover i.e net sales
  4. May be used to compare the performance of the business in the current accounting period and the previous period
  5.  It can also compare its performance with other similar businesses
  6. It facilitates the preparation of profit and loss account, since the gross profit is carried forward to the profit and loss account.

NET PROFIT

The profit realized after the cost of all the expenses incurred have been deducted is what  is referred to as Net profit.

The net profit can be determined through calculation or preparation of a profit and loss account.

EXPENSES – Refers to the cost of goods and services used   by a firm to earn revenue. Eg salaries wages

INCOMES – Refers to the money got or realized from the sale of of goods and services by a firm eg sales, rent income , discount received

NET PROFIT= GROSS PROFIT – EXPENSES

OR

NET PROFIT = GROFIT – EXPENSES +OTHE INCOMES

Profit and Loss account

In preparation of this account, the gross profit is brought down on the credit sides, with all other revenues/income/loss of the business being credited and the expenses together with the net profit being debited.

In case the expenses are more than the income, then the business shall have made a net loss, and the loss will be credited.

Net profit/loss can also be found through calculation as follows;

Net profit/loss = Gross profit + Total other revenues – Total expenses

For the above example;

Total other revenues = 12 000 + 10 000 + 16 000

                                      = 38 000

Total expenses = 10 000 + 4 000 + 20 000 + 6 000 + 8 000 + 15 000 + 10 000

                                     = 73 000

Therefore; Net profit = Gross profit + Total other revenues – Total expenses

                                    = 100 000 + 38 000 – 73 000

                                    = 65 000

Relationship between margin and mark-up

Since margin and mark-up are all the expression of Gross profit, it is possible to change one to the other.

  • Changing mark-up to margin

Mark-up can be changed to margin as follows:

  1. Convert the mark-up percentage as a fraction in its simplest form.
    1. Add the value of the numerator of the fraction to the denominator to come up with the new fraction (margin fraction) that is

If the mark-up fraction =

Importance of Financial Ratios

  • Mark up and margin helps in the following; setting the selling price, calculating  profit or losses and determining the sales for a given period of time
  • Final  ratios are useful in analyzing the financial position of a business which helps in making investment decisions
  • Working capital and acid test ratio help in showing whether the business is in a position to meet its short term obligations and checking whether the business is utilizing its resources properly. That is high working capital ratio shows that most of the resources are idle
  • Return on capital shows the following;
  • The performance of the business in relation to other similar businesses
  • Comparison of the performance of the business over different periods
  • Whether the business finances have been invested or not
  • Help the potential investors on the decision on where to invest
  • Rate of stock turnover also help in determining how fast or slow the stock is moving. It also helps in computing the gross profit or loss.
