SUGGESTED ANSWERS TO DISCUSSION QUESTIONS1. An annual report generally includes comparative financial statements, supporting informationabout the company’s financial position, its business operations, and a discussion bymanagement concerning the company’s future prospects. Before the annual report is issued,the financial statements must be audited by a firm of Certified Public Accountants (CPAs).Publicly owned companies must file their financial statements and detailed supportingschedules with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).2. Retained earnings is that portion of stockholders’ equity created by earning income andretaining all or part of the resources created in the business. Income is a function of revenueless expenses. We have learned that cash is not always received at the exact time thatrevenue is earned, nor is cash necessarily disbursed at the exact time that an expense isincurred. Thus, the income retained by a company is not in the form of cash. Even if acompany’s income did equal its net cash inflow, the amount retained would not be kept inthe form of cash. As the company grew, the cash would be converted into property, plant,equipment, and other assets.3. The income statement, statement of retained earnings, and balance sheet are prepareddirectly from the amounts shown in the adjusted trial balance. The income statement reportsrevenue earned during the period less expenses incurred in generating that revenue. Whenrevenue exceeds expenses, net income is reported, and an increase in stockholders’ equityresults. When expenses exceed revenue, a net loss is reported, and a decrease instockholders’ equity results. The net income (or net loss) from the income statement is addedto the beginning Retained Earnings balance in the statement of retained earnings. Anydividends declared during the period are subtracted in arriving at the ending RetainedEarnings balance to be reported in the balance sheet at the end of the period.4. Items that may require disclosure include, but are not limited to: pending lawsuits, scheduledplant closings, certain governmental investigations, significant events occurring after thebalance sheet date but before the statements are issued, specific customers that account for alarge portion of the company’s business, names of stockholders that own large amounts ofthe company’s stock, any changes in accounting principles having a significant impact on thecompany’s financial position, and any unusual conflicts between the company and itsofficers. The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2012Q1-4

5. Temporary (or nominal) accounts include revenue, expenses, and dividend accounts. These arethe accounts involved in the closing process at the end of the year. Generally speaking, allincome statement accounts (and dividends reported in the statement of retained earnings) areconsidered temporary.6. Permanent (or real) accounts include assets, liability, and stockholders’ equity accounts. Theseaccounts are not involved in the closing process at the end of the year. Generally speaking, allaccounts reported in the balance sheet (and in the after-closing trial balance) are consideredpermanent.7. Dividends paid to stockholders are not considered an expense of the business and, therefore,are not taken into account in determining net income for the period. Since dividends are not anexpense, the Dividends account is not closed to the Income Summary account. Instead, it isclosed directly to the Retained Earnings account.8. After all revenue, expense, and dividend accounts have been closed, the only accounts thatremain are the permanent (or real) accounts appearing in the balance sheet. In comparison tothe adjusted trial balance, the after-closing trial balance contains only balance sheet accounts.Also, the Retained Earnings account is no longer reported at its beginning balance.9. A company can be both profitable and insolvent. For instance, the company’s sales might bemade only on account. If customers delay in paying what they owe, the average number ofdays that accounts receivable remain outstanding could be very high (say, 120 days). At thesame time, the company’s creditors may require payment at a much faster rate, say, 30 days.Thus even though this business might be profitable (i.e., its revenue exceed its expenses), itmay not be able to remain solvent if its accounts receivable fail to convert to cash in time tosettle its accounts payable.10. A company may close its accounts annually, but prepare financial reports monthly or quarterly.These monthly (or quarterly) statements are referred to as interim financial statements.General ledger accounts to be reported in the interim income statement require certaincomputations in order to determine their correct monthly or quarterly amounts. Computationsare not required to ascertain interim balance sheet amounts because the balance is alwaysbased on the account balances at the balance sheet date.11. Adequate disclosure means that financial statements should include whatever supplementalinformation is necessary for an intelligent user to interpret the statements properly.12. Unlike most other operating expenses, depreciation does not require regular periodic outlays ofcash. Depreciation is merely an estimate of that portion of a depreciable asset’s cost which is tobe matched against revenue earned during the current accounting period. The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2012Q4-12

13. Revenue, expense, and dividend accounts are called temporary accounts, or nominal accounts,because they accumulate the transactions of only one accounting period. At the end of theperiod, the changes in owners’ equity accumulated in these temporary accounts need to betransferred to the Retained Earnings account, and the temporary accounts need to have zerobalances in order to be ready to measure the revenue, expenses, and dividends of the nextaccounting period. The closing process serves these purposes. Revenue and expense accounts arefirst closed to the Income Summary account which, in turn, is closed to the Retained Earningsaccount. Any dividends declared during the period are then closed directly to the RetainedEarnings account.14. Return on equity is a measure of net income relative to a company's average stockholders' equitythroughout the year. Thus, it conveys the amount of income generated for every dollar of equitycapital. A high return on equity indicates that management efficiently used resources providedthrough owners' equity to generate income. A low return on equity indicates that managementwas not efficient in using resources provided through owners' equity to generate income.*15. A worksheet (or spreadsheet software): Provides a “scratch pad” for working out adjusting entries prior to actually entering theseitems in the accounts. Enables accountants to prepare interim financial statements without formally adjusting andclosing the accounts. Without affecting the account balances, provides both accountants and management with a“preview” of the effects of proposed entries upon the financial statements. *Supplemental Topic, " The Worksheet."
