Analysis of income and expenses of the organization


Analysis of income and expenses is carried out on the basis of the statement of revenue and expenditure, which characterizes the organization's financial results for the period. The content of the statement of revenue and expenditure is regulated by IFRS number 1 "Presentation of Financial Statements".

In business and investment circles, it is used to determine the profitability of the investment value, credit organiza¬tsii. It provides information to investors and lenders with which they predict mo¬gut amounts of future cash flows. This report enables users of financial statements to forecast future cash flows in several different ways. Firstly, investors and lenders may use information report on revenues and expenditures for the previous assessment of the organization. Although past success does not mean success in the future, some important trends can be identified on the basis of historical data. Secondly, this report helps users determine the risk of failure op certain level of cash flows. Information on the various components of net income - income and expenses - emphasizes their relationship. With this informa¬tsiyu can, for example, to assess the impact of changes in demand for the products of organization, income and expenses of the organization (ie, net income). Separating operations from other activities, can Detect-live that is not visible at first sight, because the primary means of income is just operating activities. In the amount of net income often affect the organization's accounting practices. Napri¬mer, one organization takes into account the depreciation of production funds accelerated method, and the other uses a straight-line basis. Assuming that all factors odina¬kovy income first organization will be lower than the second, even though they do not differ substantially ni¬chem apart. Thus, the quality of the net income of the organiza¬tsii also important. Organizations that use liberal (aggressive) the accounting policies in the reports show a significant increase in net income in a short time pro¬mezhutok. In such cases, they say, that the quality of net income is low.

The net income or loss must include all recognized in the period income and expenses. An exception may be only those revenues and expenses that are so¬otvetstvii with the requirements of other accounting standards should refer to articles ne¬posredstvenno equity. Examples of such exceptions are the sum of revaluation or devaluation of fixed assets. Revenues and expenses are grouped in the statement of income and expenditure so as to identify the income (loss) from ordinary activities and extraordinary items. In this case, the concept of net income (loss) is based on the belief that any doho¬dy and expenses related to ordinary activities, because they reflect the risks faced by the organization, the leading case in certain political, economic and geo¬graficheskih conditions. Force majeure events and transactions are considered uniquely otlichi¬mye from ordinary activities. One of the features of extraordinary circumstances, as a rule, they are rare, non-recurring in nature. However, it is not necessary that all the events are rarely sluchayuschie¬sya for emergency situations. For example, the sale of subsidiaries associations for most organizations is not part of the event, but the event is seen as normal activities. The most common examples chrezvychay¬nyh circumstances - the earthquake, the expropriation of property, etc.

However, the allocation for emergency situations and even natural disasters politi¬cheskih depends on what the organization is for normal activities. For example, losses from the earthquake for the organization in earthquake-prone area shall be assigned to the results from ordinary activities, such as the risk of po¬ter - normal risk of doing business in a given geographical area. In the ordinary course of isolation is required to disclose certain income and expenses. This need arises when, due to their nature and / or size sve¬deniya of them are significant to explain the results of operations during the reporting pe¬riod. For example, separately represented income (loss) (sale of finished goods, works, and services) and non-core (sale of fixed assets, intangible ak¬tivov, foreign exchange, etc.) activity.
