– Shows how much profit the business generated over a given period
of time
2. Statement of Financial Position

3. Statement of Changes in Owners’ Equity:

from transactions during the period (not examinable)

Public companies need to produce these Financial Reports every year.
They need to be audited independently and presented to shareholders
in the companies Annual Report.
Four different methods for analysing capital investments:
1. The Accounting Rate of Return (ARR % pa):
ARR = Average profit / Average investment … similar to ROA.
2. The Payback Period (PP years):
Time to receive return of initial investment.
3. Net Present Value (NPV $):
NPV = Sum of ALL cash flows discounted to the present
Use calculator, spreadsheet or discount tables.
The discount rate (r%) or cost of capital (interest rate) used to
calculate the NPV depends on the opportunity cost of interest
rt, the inflation rate rp, and the specific risk premium r,
r=rp + rp+r,
4. Internal Rate of Return (IRR % pa): not examinable
The exact discount rate which gives the NPV = 0.
