BALANCE SHEET

Meaning of Balance Sheet Balance sheet is a summarised statement of assets and liabilities, prepared generally at the end of financial year to show the financial position of the business. All liabilities are put on the left hand side of balance sheet where all assets are shown on its right hand side.

GROUPING AND MARSHALLING OF ASSETS AND LIABILITIES

Marshalling : It refers to the order in which the various assets and liabilities are shown in the Balance Sheet. The assets and liabilities can be shown either in the order of liquidity or in the order of performance.

Order of Liquidity 

1. The assets are arranged in the order of their liquidity i.e., the most liquid asset (e.g., cash in-hand), is shown first. The least liquid asset (e.g., goodwill) is shown last.

2. The liabilities are arranged in the order of timing i.e., the liabilities which are to be paid immediately (e.g., Creditors) are shown first and which are to be paid later are shown at last (long-term loans).

A general format of a Balance Sheet in order of liquidity is shown below:

Adjustment in preparation of financial statement of Soleproprietor 

Meaning of Adjustment entries : Those entries which need to be passed at the end of the accounting year to show the accurate profit or loss and fairfinancial position of the business.
Need of Adjustment: There are number of transactions that may not find the place in the Trial Balance due to any reason such as Closing Stock (because it is valued at the end of the year), Manager's Commission based on Net profits (because its calculation requires preparation of Income Statement first). These transactions can only be taken into account by passing Adjustment entries so that their impact on the profitability and financial position can be shown.
Closing Stock : The closing stock represents the cost of unsold goods lying in the stores at the end of the accounting period.
Outstanding Expenses : When expenses of an accounting period remain unpaid at the end of an accounting period, they are termed as outstanding expenses.
As they relate to the earning of revenue during the current accounting year, it is logical that they should be duly charged against the revenue for computation of the correct amount of profit or loss.
Prepaid Expenses : At the end of the accounting year, it is found that the benefits of some expenses have not yet been fully received; a portion of its benefit would be received in the next accounting year. This portion of expenses, is carried forward to the next year and is termed as prepaid expenses.
Accrued Income : It may sometime happen that certain items of income such as a interest on loan, commission, rent, etc. are earned during the current accounting year but have not been actually received by the end of the same year. Such incomes are known as accrued income.
Income Received in Advance : Sometimes, a certain income is received but the whole amount of it does not belong to the current period. The portion of the income which belongs to the next accounting period is termed as income received in advance or an Unearned Income.
Depreciation : It is the decline in the value of assets on account of wear and tear and passage of time. It is treated as a business expense and is debited to profit and loss account.
This, in effect, amounts to writing-off a portion of the cost of an asset which has been used in the business for the purpose of earning profits.

Bad Debts : The debtors from whom amounts cannot be recovered are treated in the books of accounts as bad and are termed as bad debts.
Further Bad Debts : These Bad debts is a loss that occurred after preparation of Trial Balance. Further bad debts be added in the bad debts already appearing in the Profit and Loss A/c and Debtors would be reduced with the same amount.
Provision for Bad Debts : In the balance sheet, debtors appears on the assets side of the Balance Sheet, which is their estimated realisable value during next year. It is quite possible that the whole of the amount may not be realized in future. However, it is not possible to accurately know the amount of such bad debts.
Hence, a reasonable estimate of such loss is provided in the book. Such provision is called provision forbad debts. Provision for doubtful debts is shown as a deduction from the debtors on the asset side of the balance sheet.

Note : The provision for doubtful debts brought forward from the previous year is called the opening provision or old provision. When such a provision already exists, the loss due to bad debts during the current year are adjusted against the same and while making provision for doubtful debts required at the end of the current year is called new provision. The balance of old provision as given in trial balance should also be taken into account.
Provision for discount on Debtors : Discount is allowed to customers to encourage them to make prompt payment. The discount likely to be allowed to customers in an accounting year can be estimated and provided for by creating a provision for Discount on debtors.
Provision for discount on debtors is made on good debtors which are arrived at by deducting further bad debts and provision for bad debts out of Debtors shown in the Balance sheet.

2. Salary and wages will be shown in profit and loss A/c debit side (assuming that salary is prominent) while wages and salary will be shown in trading A/c debit side, (wages are prominent).

3. Freight, carriage, cartage will be shown in Dr. side of trading A/c. if inward word attached with these then it also debited to trading A/c, if outward word attached with these item then it will be debited to profit and loss account.

4. Any expenses related to factory are debited to trading account like factory lighting, factory rent if factory word is not given then lighting and rent will be debited to profit and loss account.

5. Trade expenses always debited to profit and loss A/c not as name indicate trading A/c.

6. Packaging material : Cost of packaging material used in product are direct expenses as it refers to small containers which form part sold, it will debited to trading A/c.

8. Adjusted purchases mean the amount of purchases is adjusted by way of adding opening stock and reduced by the amount of closing stock, e.g., purchases Rs. 1,00,000; opening stock Rs. 12,000, closing stock Rs. 8,000. Calculate adjusted purchases.

Adjusted purchases = purchases + opening stock - closing stock = Rs. 1,00,000 + Rs. 12,000 - Rs. 8,000 = Rs. 1,04,000 When adjusted purchases is given in trail balance, then there is no need of debiting opening stock and crediting closing stock in trading A/c.

Remember : While preparing Final Account the items which are given inside the Trial Balance are written only once either in Income Statement or in the Balance Sheet. (Assuming that they have been already adjusted in the respective account). On the other hand, the items which are given outside the Trial Balance (known as adjustment) are to be written twice because the double entry in respect of all adjustments is to be completed in the final accounts itself.

FAQs on Financial Statements of Sole Proprietorship Chapter Notes - Accountancy Class 11 - Commerce

1. What are the financial statements that a sole proprietorship typically prepares?
Ans. A sole proprietorship typically prepares three main financial statements: the income statement, the balance sheet, and the statement of cash flows. These statements provide an overview of the business's financial performance, position, and cash flow activities.
2. How does an income statement of a sole proprietorship differ from other types of businesses?
Ans. The income statement of a sole proprietorship is different from other types of businesses because it includes the owner's personal expenses and withdrawals. In a sole proprietorship, the owner and the business are considered as one entity, so the income statement reflects both business revenues and expenses, as well as the owner's personal financial activities.
3. What information does the balance sheet of a sole proprietorship provide?
Ans. The balance sheet of a sole proprietorship provides information about the business's assets, liabilities, and owner's equity at a specific point in time. It shows what the business owns (assets), what it owes (liabilities), and the owner's investment in the business (owner's equity).
4. How does the statement of cash flows help in analyzing the financial health of a sole proprietorship?
Ans. The statement of cash flows helps in analyzing the financial health of a sole proprietorship by showing the cash inflows and outflows during a specific period. It categorizes the cash flows into operating, investing, and financing activities, providing insights into how the business generates and uses its cash. This statement helps assess the business's liquidity, cash flow management, and ability to cover expenses and debts.
5. Are sole proprietorships required to prepare financial statements for external stakeholders?
Ans. Sole proprietorships are generally not required to prepare financial statements for external stakeholders, such as investors or regulators. However, they may still choose to prepare financial statements for their own internal use, to monitor the business's financial performance and make informed decisions. Additionally, some external parties, such as lenders or potential buyers, may request financial statements as part of their evaluation process.
