Describe the primary forms of business organization. A sole proprietorship is a business owned by one person. A partnership is a business owned by two or more people associated as partners. A corporation is a separate legal entity for which evidence of ownership is provided by shares of stock. 1-4 Test Bank for Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision Making, Fifth Edition 2. Identify the users and uses of accounting information. Internal users are managers who need accounting information in planning, controlling, and evaluating business operations. The primary external users are investors and creditors. Investors (stockholders) use accounting information to help them decide whether to buy, or sell shares of a company's stock. Creditors (suppliers and bankers) use accounting information to assess the risk of granting credit or loaning money to a business. Other groups who have an indirect interest in a business are taxing authorities, customers, labor unions, and regulatory agencies. 3. Explain the three principal types of business activity. Financing activities involve collecting the necessary funds to support the business. Investing activities involve acquiring the resources necessary to run the business. Operating activities involve putting the resources of the business into action to generate a profit. 4. Describe the content and purpose of each of the financial statements. An income statement presents the revenues and expenses of a company for a specified period of time. A retained earnings statement summarizes the changes in retained earnings that have occurred for a specific period of time. A balance sheet reports the assets, liabilities, and stockholders' equity of a business at a specific date. A statement of cash flows summarizes information concerning the cash inflows (receipts) and outflows (payments) for a specific period of time. 5. Explain the meaning of assets, liabilities, and stockholders' equity, and state the basic accounting equation. Assets are resources owned by a business. Liabilities are the debts and obligations of the business. Liabilities represent claims of creditors on the assets of the business. Stockholders' equity represents the claims of owners on the assets of the business. Stockholders' equity is composed of two parts: common stock and retained earnings. The basic accounting equation is: Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders' Equity 6. Describe the components that supplement the financial statements in an annual report. The management discussion and analysis provides management's interpretation of the company's results and financial position as well as discussion of plans for the future. Notes to the financial statements provide additional explanation or detail to make the financial statements more informative. The auditor's report expresses an opinion as to whether the financial statements present fairly the company's results of operations and financial position.

Disadvantages of a corporation are increased taxation and government regulations.

That is, they may be required to use personal assets to satisfy business debts. The liability of a corporate shareholder, however, is limited to his or her investment in the business. Therefore, it would be safer for a wealthy individual to set up his/her business as a corporation.

While science will be your profession and major concern, you will not be able to escape the need to understand accounting. Accounting staff and professionals will always be available to assist you. Here are some areas that will directly affect you: As a manager, you will need to review accounting information (both internal and external) and make decisions. Budgets will be an important part of your research activities. As an employee, you will be concerned about the financial information of your employer. Thus, you will need to be able to read the company's financial statements. Also, as an investor, you will be interested in the financial statements of other companies. You will probably not be a preparer of the financial statements, but you do need an understanding of how they are prepared. You also need a good understanding of how to interpret the information on the financial statements. S-A E 214 The information needs of a specific user of financial accounting information depends upon the kinds of decisions that user makes. Identify the major users of accounting information and discuss what questions financial accounting information answers for each group of users. Ans: N/A, SO: 2, Bloom: K, Difficulty: Easy, Min: 5, AACSB: Communication, AICPA BB: Legal/Regulatory Perspective, AICPA FN: Reporting, AICPA PC: Communications, IMA: Reporting Solution 214 The major users of accounting information are internal users and external users. Internal users are those who manage the business. External users are those outside the business who have either a present or potential financial interest. Financial accounting information may answer the following questions for internal users: 1. Is cash sufficient to pay our debts? 2. Can we afford to give employee pay raises this year? 3. What is the cost of manufacturing each unit of product? 4. Which product line is the most profitable? Questions answered by financial accounting information for external users include: 1. Is the company earning satisfactory income? 2. How does the company compare in size and profitability with competitors? 3. Will the company be able to pay its debts as they come due? 1-62 Test Bank for Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision Making, Fifth Edition S-A E 215 The statement of cash flows for Nyland Corporation reveals the following information: Net cash used by operating activities ($150,000) Net cash used by investing activities Net cash provided by financing activities Issuance of common stock Issued note payable Net change in cash $100,000 250,000 ($200,000) $350,000 0 Provide three comments about this information. Make your comments concise yet thorough. Ans: N/A, SO: 4, Bloom: C, Difficulty: Easy, Min: 5, AACSB: Communication, AICPA BB: Legal/Regulatory Perspective, AICPA FN: Reporting, AICPA PC: Communications, IMA: Business Economics Solution 215 (1) Operating activities represent the ongoing activities of the company and are a result of its reason for being in business. The fact that this is a negative cash flow is a cause of concern. This may be a new company and future cash flows from operations will be positive. (2) The cash that was used for operating and investing activities came from the shareholders (issuance of common stock) and creditors (borrowing with a notes payable). This is to be expected for a new company, or a company that is expanding, but should not be considered an ongoing way to finance the business. Cash from operating activities should be available to purchase assets and pay dividends to shareholders. (3) There is a concern that all proceeds raised from issuing stock have been used. If operating activities cannot generate positive cash flows, can the corporation issue additional stock to raise cash? (4) The corporation owes on the note payable. Will there be sufficient cash from operating activities to pay the interest and repay the principal? (5) Does the corporation need to acquire additional assets for use in the business? If so, will it be able to get the cash to pay for these future acquisitions. The net of zero may be misleading. The reader may think that there are no potential problems because the cash flows netted to zero. The user of the Statement of Cash Flows needs to consider the activities of each of the sections operating, investing, and financing.

(b) The ending amount on the retained earnings statement is reported as the retained earnings amount on the balance sheet. (c) The ending amount on the statement of cash flows is reported as the cash amount on the balance sheet.

S-A E 219 The framework used to record and summarize the economic activities of a business enterprise is referred to as the accounting equation. State the basic accounting equation and define its major components. How are business transactions and financial statements related to the accounting equation? Ans: N/A, SO: 5, Bloom: C, Difficulty: Easy, Min: 3, AACSB: Communication, AICPA BB: Legal/Regulatory Perspective, AICPA FN: Reporting, AICPA PC: Communications, IMA: Business Economics Solution 219 The basic accounting equation is expressed as follows: Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders' Equity Assets are defined as resources owned by the business. Liabilities are creditors' claims against the assets of the business; or simply put, liabilities are existing debts and obligations. Stockholders' equity is the ownership claim on the total assets of the business; it is equal to total assets minus total liabilities. Business transactions are economic events and activities that affect the elements of the basic accounting equation; that is, transactions cause increases or decreases in the assets, liabilities, and stockholders' equity. The financial statements report the results and effects of transactions on the business' assets, liabilities, and stockholders' equity. The balance sheet is a summary expression of the basic accounting equation. S-A E 220 What types of information are presented in the notes to the financial statements?

After several very profitable years, Joe's Burgers began to have problems. Most of the problems were related to Joe's expansion of the eating area in the restaurant without corresponding increases in the food preparation area. Joe does not have the cash or financial backing to expand further. He has therefore decided to sell his business. William Sheets is interested in purchasing the business. However, he is located in another city and is unfamiliar with Newton. He has asked Joe why he is selling Joe's Burgers. Joe replies that his elderly mother requires extra care, and that his brother needs help in his manufacturing business. Both are true, but neither is his primary reason for selling. Joe reasons that William should not have asked him anyway, since profitable businesses don't come up for sale. Required: 1. Identify the stakeholders in this situation. 2. Did Joe act ethically in not revealing fully his reasons for selling the business? Why or why not? Ans: N/A, SO: 6, Bloom: E, Difficulty: Easy, Min: 5, AACSB: Ethics, AICPA BB: Legal/Regulatory Perspective, AICPA FN: Reporting, AICPA PC: Communications, IMA: Reporting Solution 221 1. The stakeholders include: Joe Laramie William Sheets Newton, Ohio Students of City College and other customers City College Persons financing the purchase of Don's Burgers 2. Joe did not act ethically in not revealing fully his reasons for selling the business. Students might be of the opinion that a purchaser should investigate a business before purchasing it, rather than relying entirely on the seller's assertions. However, students should realize that Joe should have said something about his problems. He might ethically be allowed to put these in the best possible light, perhaps, but failure to disclose them at all is certainly unethical. This is especially true, since family concerns might well cause someone to sell a business that is otherwise doing well. Joe has shown an intent to deceive that is unethical, and might be actionable in court as well. S-A E 222 (Communication) Mary Baroni is a friend of yours from high school. She decided to become a beautician after leaving high school, rather than to attend college. She recently opened her own shop, and has contracted her services to a local hospital. She is paid a monthly fee for her services, and receives a small gratuity from each of the patients. She has just received her first set of financial statements from her accountant. She is quite upset. The statements show a cash balance of $3,600 at the end of the month, but a net income of only $500. She has written you a letter, asking you whether such a situation is possible, or whether she should find another accountant. Required: Write a short letter to your friend. Use proper form.

The instructor's requirements concerning proper form should be followed. The letter may be either business or personal. At a minimum, the letter should be in a recognizable form, and proper grammar and spelling should be used. Neat erasures and corrections might be allowed. A suggested personal letter follows: 1245 Lily Lane Buena Vista, AR 77661 (Date) Dear Mary, Congratulations on opening your business! I am sure you will do well, combining your creative genius with your talent for serving others. You asked about your financial statements. Of course, you realize that I am just an accounting student, but I do know that it is possible to have a large cash balance and little net income. You may have had expenses that were not paid in cash yet. These expenses reduce your income, but not your cash. I think that you should discuss the statements with the accountant who prepared them. He or she will be in the best position to explain the results. Thanks for the question. It really made me think. Sincerely, (signature) ... View Full Document
