Q.2 (b) Write short notes of IFRS.


The IFRS Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit private sector organisation working in the public interest. Its principal objectives are: to develop a single set of high quality, understandable, enforceable and globally accepted international financial reporting standards (IFRSs) through its standardsetting body, the IASB; to promote the use and rigorous application of those standards; to take account of the financial reporting needs of emerging economies and small and medium-sized entities (SMEs); and to bring convergence of national accounting standards and IFRSs to high quality solutions. The governance and oversight of the activities undertaken by the IFRS

Foundation and its standard-setting body rests with its Trustees, who are also responsible for safeguarding the independence of the IASB and ensuring the financing of the organisation. The Trustees are publicly accountable to a Monitoring Board of public authorities. Standard-setting The IASB (International Accounting Standards Board) The IASB is the independent standard-setting body of the IFRS Foundation. Its members (currently 15 full-time members) are responsible for the development and publication of IFRSs, including the IFRS for SMEs and for approving Interpretations of IFRSs as developed by the IFRS Interpretations Committee (formerly called the IFRIC). All meetings of the IASB are held in public and webcast. In fulfilling its standard-setting duties the IASB follows a thorough, open and transparent due process of which the publication of consultative documents, such as discussion papers and exposure drafts, for public comment is an important component. The IASB engages closely with stakeholders around the world, including investors, analysts, regulators, business leaders, accounting standard-setters and the accountancy profession.

The IFRS Interpretations Committee The IFRS Interpretations Committee (formerly called the IFRIC) is the interpretative body of the IASB. The Interpretations Committee comprises 14 voting members appointed by the Trustees and drawn from a variety of countries and professional backgrounds. The mandate of the Interpretations Committee is to review on a timely basis widespread accounting issues that have arisen within the context of current IFRSs and to provide authoritative guidance (IFRICs) on those issues. Interpretation Committee meetings are open to the public and webcast. In developing interpretations, the Interpretations Committee works closely with similar national committees and follows a transparent, thorough and open due process.

Q.6 What is a cash budget? How it is useful in managerial decision making?

Cash budget is an estimation of the cash inflows and outflows for a business or individual for a specific period of time. Cash budgets are often used to assess whether the entity has sufficient cash to fulfill regular operations and/or whether too much cash is being left in unproductive capacities.

A cash budget is extremely important, especially for small businesses, because it allows a company to determine how much credit it can extend to customers before it begins to have liquidity problems. For individuals, creating a cash budget is a good method for determining where their cash is regularly being spent. This awareness can be beneficial because knowing the value of certain expenditures can yield opportunities for additional savings by cutting unnecessary costs. For example, without setting a cash budget, spending a dollar a day on a cup of coffee seems fairly unimpressive. However, upon setting a cash budget to account for regular annual cash expenditures, this expenditure comes out to an annual total of $365, which may be better spent on other things. If you frequently visit specialty coffee shops, your annual expenditure will be substantially more. The importance of cash budget may be summarized as follow:1. Helpful in Planning. Cash budget helps planning for the most efficient use of cash. It points out cash surplus or deficiency at selected point of time and enables arrange for the deficiency before time or to plan for investing the surplus money as profitable as possible without any threat to the liquidity. 2. Forecasting the Future needs. Cash budget forecasts the future needs of funds, its time and the amount well in advance. It, thus, helps planning for raising the funds through the most profitable sources at reasonable terms and costs. 3. Maintenance of Ample cash Balance. Cash is the basis of liquidity of the enterprise. Cash budget helps in maintaining the liquidity. It suggests adequate cash balance for expected requirements and a fair margin for the contingencies. 4. Controlling Cash Expenditure. Cash budget acts as a controlling device. The expenses of various departments in the firm can best be controlled so as not to exceed the budgeted limit. 5. Evaluation of Performance. It acts as a standard for evaluating the financial performance. 6. Testing the Influence of proposed Expansion Programme. Cash budget forecasts the inflows from a proposed expansion or investment programme and testify its impact on cash position.


Sound Dividend Policy. Cash budget plans for cash dividend to

shareholders, consistent with the liquid position of the firm. It helps in following a sound consistent dividend policy. 8. Basis of Long-term Planning and Co-ordination. Cash budget helps in co-ordinating the various finance functions, such as sales, credit, investment, working capital etc. it is an important basis of long term financial planning and helpful in the study of long term financing with respect to probable amount, timing, forms of security and methods of repayment.

Q.2 Explain different methods of costing. Your answer should be studded with

examples (preferably firm name and product) for each method of costing Job Costing:

This is a product related classification of costing system. The cost is ascertained for each job or work order processed. This system is used where most of the manufacturing activities are planned and carried out for distinct jobs or

customers. The utility of this method increases when there is great variability in nature of jobs or work orders processed.

Batch Costing : This method determines the cost associated with each batch pf products manufactured. This differs from job or work order costing in the variability of the production batches. In this case the production batches consist of mostly standard products or components. What varies is mostly the size of batches and the timing of their processing. Process Costing: In this method of costing the costs are determined for various different manufacturing activities or processes. These costs are the assigned to different products on the basis of some criteria like quantity processed or the time taken for processing. This method of costing is suitable for manufacturing units that use continuous processes or mass production techniques. This method is particularly suitable where there are many different products and process routes, where output of one process becomes input for another. Operation Costing: This method is similar to the process costing. However the products manufactured have limited variation. For example a cement plant may use this method. Multiple costing: Most of the organizations use a combination of different costing method rather than just one method. Multiple costing refers to such combinations of different methods.
Page 14

Q.3 State the importance of differentiating between the fixed costs and variable costs in managerial decision.
Variable costs are costs that can be varied flexibly as conditions change. In the John Bates Clark model of the firm that we are studying, labor costs are the variable costs. Fixed costs are the costs of the investment goods used by the firm, on the idea that these reflect a long-term commitment that can be recovered only by wearing them out in the production of goods and services for sale. The idea here is that labor is a much more flexible resource than capital investment. People can change from one task to another flexibly (whether within the same firm or in a new job at another firm), while machinery tends to be designed for a very specific use. If it isn't used for that purpose, it can't produce anything at all. Thus, capital investment is much more of a commitment than hiring is. In the eighteen-hundreds, when John Bates Clark was writing, this was pretty clearly true. Over the past century, a) education and experience have become more important for labor, and have made labor more specialized, and b) increasing automatic control has made some machinery more flexible. So the differences between capital and labor are less than they once were, but all the same, it seems labor is still relatively more flexible than capital. It is this (relative) difference in flexibility that is expressed by the simplified distinction of long and short run. Of course, productivity and costs are inversely related, so the variable costs will change as the productivity of labor changes. Here is a picture of the fixed costs (FC), variable costs (VC) and the total of both kinds of costs (TC) for the productivity

Output produced is measured toward the right on the horizontal axis. The cost numbers are on the vertical axis. Notice that the variable and total cost curves are parallel, since the distance between them is a constant number -- the fixed cost.

Q.5 A change in credit policy has caused an increase in sales, an increase in discounts taken, a decrease in the amount of bad debts, and a decrease in investment in accounts receivable. Based upon this information, the companys (select the best one and give reason) 1. 2. 3. 4.
Solution 1) Average collection period has decreased Since sales have increased, you would expect accounts receivable to increase too, if the Average collection period remained the same. But you're told that AR has decreased, so the Average collection period must have decreased, i.e. the customers are taking fewer days to pay up.

Average collection period has decreased Percentage discount offered has decreased Accounts receivable turnover has decreased Working Capital has increased.

Q.6 Identify the users of accounting information.

Accounting plays a very important role in all businesses but it is not just the business itself that finds accounting information useful. There are other stake holders who rely on accounting information to make decisions. These stakeholders include:


Shareholders - Shareholders use the balance sheet and profit and

loss account produced by limited companies to decide if they are going to increase or decrease their holding. 2. Management - Management in every level of the business from director

level to supervisor level rely on accounting information to do their job properly. They all use the same information for different purposes. For example, directors use it for strategic purposes and middle management can use it to see if they are meeting their financial targets. 3. Suppliers - Along with other data suppliers will look at a company's

balance sheet and profit and loss account to see if and how much credit they are willing to give to present and potential customers. 4. Lenders - Similar to suppliers lenders also need to make sure a

company is in a healthy financial situation before they start to lend money. 5. Government - Governments use the information provided by a

company about its finances to levy tax on the profits. 6. Customers - Before another company becomes a customer or enters

into a joint venture, they will look at the company's finances to make sure the company is not in trouble and that their supplies are not about to dry up. 7. Employees - Employees also have an interest in how well their

employer is doing so use financial accounting information for this purpose.
