Sample text

In short, accrual-based accounting has a much broader scope than cash-based accounting. A big difference between cash- and accrual-based accounting concerns how they measure annual profit of a business. With cash-based accounting, profit simply equals the total of cash inflows from sales minus the total of cash outflows for expenses of making sales and running the business, or in other words, the net increase in cash from sales and expenses. With the accrual-based accounting method, profit is measured differently because the two components of profit – sales revenue and expenses – are recorded differently.

Distributions from net income usually are reported in a separate financial statement called the Statement of Changes in Owners’ Capital, which we discuss in Chapter 8. 11. Suppose £950,000 of owners’ capital consists of profit earned and not distributed by the business. What is this amount usually called in the balance sheet? And, what is the other amount of owners’ capital called in the balance sheet? The £950,000 of owners’ capital over and above the amount of capital invested by the owners typically is called retained earnings.

Suppose that a business has £10 million total assets. These assets didn’t fall down like manna from heaven (as one of the authors’ old accounting professor was fond of saying). The money for the assets came from somewhere. The business’s creditors (to whom the firm owes its liabilities) may have supplied, say, £4 million of its total assets. Therefore, the owners’ capital sources provided the other £6 million. Business accounting is based on the two-sided nature of the accounting equation. Both assets and sources of assets are accounted for, which leads, quite naturally, to double entry accounting.
