Thank You Note……………………………………………….. 9 Brief Overview In Final Accounts, two types of accounting statements are prepared, Viz. Trading Account: – Trading account is a part of income statement, prepared on the basis of direct expenses & direct incomes of the business concern.
Trading account is prepared for calculating the gross profit or gross loss of a business for a given period. Debit balance of trading account indicates gross loss & credit balance shows gross profit. The balance of trading account is carried to profit & loss account. Gross profit is transferred to the credit side of P & L A/C & gross loss is shown on debit side of P & L A/C. According to J. R. Batliboi, “The Trading Account indicates the results of buying and selling of goods.
While preparing this account, the general establishment charges are ignored & only the transactions related to goods are included. ” Profit & Loss Account: -Profit & Loss Account is a second part of income statement, prepared on the basis of indirect incomes & indirect expenses of the business concern. Profit & Loss Account is prepared to ascertain net profit earned or net loss suffered by a business concern during the accounting year. Debit balance of P & L A/C indicates net loss sustained whereas credit balance of P & L A/C shows net profit earned in a business activity.
According to Prof. R. N. Carter, “A Profit & Loss Account is an account into which all gains and losses are considered in order to ascertain the excess of gain over the losses or vice –versa. ” Balance Sheet: -the Balance Sheet is not an account but a statement showing the financial position of a firm, as on a given date in the form of assets & liabilities. On the left hand side of the balance sheet closing balances of all types of liabilities are shown & on the right hand side closing balances of all types of assets are shown.
A. Palmer, has defined the term Balance Sheet as, “A statement on a particular date showing on one side the trader’s property & possessions & on the other hand the liabilities. ” Trial Balance: -Trial Balance is a list of balances of various ledger accounts. It is prepared at the end of the accounting year. It includes all closing balances of various ledger accounts maintained in the book of account of a firm. Thus, Trial Balance is not an account but a statement showing the list of balances of all ledger accounts.
When Trial Balance agrees or tallies, it ensures arithmetical accuracy of accounts kept in the book of accounts. Final accounts are usually prepared on the basis of agreed trial balance. Adjustments: -Adjustments refer to the additional information relating to some items of accounts, given outside the trial balance for considering the same while preparing final accounts. Every adjustment is to be given two effects, under two different account heads, one of which is to be debited to one account & a corresponding credit is to be given to other account.
Need & Importance of Final Accounts (1)To verify and check the arithmetical accuracy of the accounts maintained by the business & thereby to detect mistakes, frauds & misappropriations, if any.

(5)To determine the tax payable to the government. (6)To decide whether to continue the business or to give up the business activities or to shift over to some other business. (7)To find out the various types of expenses for comparison with the past year’s expenses. (8)To find out the opening and closing stocks of the goods. (9)To fix a reasonable price of the product by considering its manufacturing cost. 10)To find out the rate of return on the investment to ascertain the earning capacity of the partnership firm.
