Browngirl888 ? Merrill Lynch?s venerable publication, which I?d recommend printing out and keeping in a binder, is an excellent resource for financial analysis and accounting: Merrill Lynch ?How to Read a Financial Report? (undated) http://philanthropy.ml.com/ipo/resources/pdf/howtoreadfinreport.pdf A second good reference (for cash flow items) is this SBA document on cash flow statements: Small Business Administration Women?s Enterprise Center ?Preparing Your Cash Flow Statement? (Aug. 10, 2001) http://www.onlinewbc.gov/docs/finance/cashflowex.html PART A ======= The reductions in income are bracketed (negative) and the increases in income (non-bracketed) are positive. a. Depreciation and Amortization: ($70,000) This takes the equipment over 12 years, straight-line. b. Interest expense: ($20,000) c, Prepaid expenses: $7,000 d. Prepaid expenses: $105,000 January, February, March or 75% of $140,000 e. Salaries payable: ($28,000) PART B ======== Cash paid employees ? actually used on the Consolidated Income Statement either as Cost of Goods Sold or SG&A Cash collected ? again on the Consolidated Income Statement, though here you have to net out Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable changes Bonds payable ? Long-term liabilities Cash ? Assets (the most important of your Current Assets) Common stock ? Stockholders? Equity Equipment ? Fixed Assets Prepaid insurance ? Prepaid Expenses (under Current Assets) Inventory ? Inventories (under Current Assets) Prepaid rent ? Prepaid Expenses (under Current Assets) Retained earnings ? gets added to ?Accumulated Retained Earnings? in Stockholders? Equity. This will also appear in an ?Accumulated Retained Earnings Statement? that shows the changes for the 2003 Fiscal Year. Salaries and wages ? as with ?Cash paid employees? this is on the Consolidated Income Statement either as Cost of Goods Sold or SG&A Sales ? the first item on your Consolidated Income Statement Google search strategy: ?How to Read a Financial Report? Merrill Lynch Hopefully this is clear in its explanation of Balance Sheet and Income Statement items but if any part of it is unclear, don?t hesitate to use the Clarification Request. Best regards, Omnivorous-GA
