Preparation of Report [Total: 30 marks]
 

Babs Lee is a good friend who is surprised to learn that her Uncle has died and left her a wholesale business which sells ukuleles to music shops throughout New Zealand. The business is called Isaleh. The executor of the will, R. Senior, has provided Babs with the latest financial statements (Appendix A) and she brings these to you as she knows you have started studying accounting at Massey University.
 

Babs thinks it might be fun to run the business for a while but she has no idea how sensible that would be. Babs is puzzled as to why there is an Income Statement as well as a Cash Flow Statement. “Surely” she says “income is cash coming into the business and expenses are cash going out of the business. If so, why have they provided two statements and I can‘t see what one has got to do with the other. The figures don’t match up.”
 

Babs has heard of a Balance Sheet and she can see that this one balances. However, in the middle in bold are the words “Working Capital” and she has no idea what this relates to. “If anyone is going to be working” she says, “it will be the two assistants and me”.
 
An attached note says that 60% of the sales are on credit with terms that the invoice should be paid by the 20th of the following month. “Does that mean a credit card or what?” Babs asks.

Appendix B
 
Guidelines for Writing Reports
 
You are required to submit a short report to the owner of the business. Some guidelines are outlined below. Remember that these reports are necessarily short, and thus need to be focussed, concise and summarised. Bullet points in relevant areas will be acceptable.
 
The following extract may be of assistance
 
‘Writing reports gives practice applying theoretical concepts to a real-life context. If you are planning a career in an organisational context, it is likely that at various stages in your career writing reports will be required. Learning to write a report, therefore, is not just a method by which your lecturers evaluate you; it is also part of professional development, and a way of learning business principles, integrating them into your critical mind.
 
Organisations call for reports when they have difficult decisions to make. They therefore require the author to exhibit investigative skills, judgment and the ability to write persuasively. Writing persuasively for a report means that you need to appear to be objective. You are required to produce proof or evidence to support your ideas. It is not enough to recommend a course of action; you need to explain why this is the best solution, what its short and long term results will be, and explain the reasons.
 
Remember above all that a report is a practical project. A report assumes that someone has a problem and they want guidance on how to deal with the problem. If you are writing for a particular person, keep that person in mind. Focus on their needs and recommend a solution that can be implemented. Be specific: avoid generalisations…’
