Accounting and Finance Report

June 18th, 2010 No comments

Ratio analysis is deemed to be important when assessing the performance of a firm and can be used as a tool to predict company failure or success. However ratio analysis shouldn’t be the only provider of information it should be supplemented by other information. E.g. external factors and non-financial information should be considered also past records need to be considered to look at the longer-term picture of the company. But past records are merely a guide and don’t always illustrate future performance. Furthermore the trends of the market need to be analysed.

However this information is not all available, this report will consider four main areas of ratio analysis which are: profitability, efficiency, liquidity and investment to come a concise conclusion on whether or not an investment in Longway P.L.C would prove beneficial. Read more…

Communications, essential human ability, serves as the concrete holding societies together. Throughout the history of mankind a variety of communications types has emerged. Some of those channels of communication, like television or even writing, have become something that surpassed our understanding of an informational channel, something that has inherent value above mere information transmission. Internet, already worshipped as new mean of communication, overcome this oversimplifying status by begetting a new and unexpected value, Internet Art.

Since the date of its creation in 1980’s, Internet was viewed as simply a new way of transmitting information. The very simplest definition of Internet defines it as a way of sharing available information in electronic format. Perhaps, Internet has modified only design of information in the way meaningful to interactive nature of modern PCs. The majority of sites offer data and information that otherwise can be found in non-electronic format. The sites distributing and educating in art merely reproduce and transform traditional art for the electronic audience. Read more…

Financial analysis essay

June 11th, 2010 No comments

Over the years business has crossed boundaries, spanned over land and ocean, and generally changed the world. As business continues to evolve more broadly on a worldwide level, an introduction of new products, new jobs, and new ways of operating in the business world has occurred. This evolution does not occur without certain complexities developing, which then fuels a search for more effective ways to be successful worldwide. A major impact is in the accounting policies and methods used by companies operating international subsidiaries. Through a better understanding of international accounting and its affect on a company headquartered in two different countries, these troublesome issues with respect to becoming successful worldwide becomes clear.

Accounting encounters more challenges when entering the international arena. Foreign subsidiaries introduce issues of translation, transaction, and exchange rates. Through exploration of the Federal Accounting Standard 52: Foreign Currency Translation, a better understanding of these three issues becomes apparent. Translation deals with taking one currency such as the U.S. dollar, and translating it into another currency such as the British Pound, for reporting purposes. This represents one of the main difficulties in international accounting – preparing consolidated financial statements when a company has foreign subsidiaries that are included. FAS 52 explains foreign currency translation as, “The process of expressing in the reporting currency of the enterprise those amounts that are denominated or measured in a different currency” .

Financial education essay

June 8th, 2010 No comments

Deciding to transfer to New York University was an easy decision. Perhaps the easiest decision there was to make in terms of choosing an institution to continue my education. The level of prestige the institute holds makes it stand out above others, as well as its prime location in the heart of Manhattan. The internship possibilities within New York City are endless, and I feel that is a key factor in preparing for the real world, and gaining incredible experience to become one of the elite in the field of business.

There are many factors that make NYU a great choice in continuing my education. For one is the city life. I have always loved being in the city, and it is such a change of pace compared to my suburban life. The city’s diversity, its museums, and theater would educate me and help myself become more educated in the field of arts. With those small reasons aside, I feel NYU will open up windows of opportunity later down the road. With alumni holding high positions at firms, as well as major corporations it opens up recruitment for job placement, and that is important in starting a career, as does the level of prestige an NYU degree would have. One of the most interesting aspects of NYU is the study abroad program, and its destinations. If I had the chance, I would study abroad in Florence, because it is such a beautiful destination, so rich in history, and culture. It would be an incredible, once in a lifetime opportunity to see what the world has to offer. My current college does not provide me with any of this. Read more…

In the medieval period, money was not very important and the only indication of how wealthy some one was base in how much land some one had. Land was not something that did not circulate the way it does today. After the collapsed of the Roman Empire, the biggest landowners were the church follow by the landed nobility. The monarchs some times own a plot of land that rented out to the state. Between 476-1000 Europe was isolated in a way from the rest of the trading world. During the medieval period, there was no direct external trade.

Money was not important during this period and it was not central part of the economy. Instead, everything that was produce was mostly use for local consumption, but that was about to change. After 1250, the entrepreneurs began to recognize that there were certain recourses that were needed by other localities. They realized that they could produce and explode these goods.Italians for example began to produce salt. England started to explode coal. Commodity production increase in volume in Europe. As the trade with the orient grew the importance of money grew too. If the money became more important the merchants, money handlers, entrepreneurs became more important in society. Because of this, the interaction of this different sectors increase and became more independent. The coming together of these sectors gave birth to the Bourgeois (1200-1300). In the 1400, a new time of money handle ling institutions emerged. Read more…

Before you can buy shares in a company you must first understand what they are and how they work. When you buy shares in a company, you are doing exactly that, purchasing your very own part in a business, even though its only a small part, the results can be rewarding. When the business makes a profit, it reflects in the share price and you make a profit as well.

Managed funds are on offer for people who are not entirely certain about going head down into the share market as in individual. Managed funds are offered by a number of stock broking companies in a wide array of values, starting at $1,000 and going right up into the hundreds of thousands.

How to buy a car

May 25th, 2010 No comments

People are always buying new cars. I myself have just recently bought a new car. I was wondering how someone would go about buying a new car. Having been though this situation, a few times, I feel that I have developed the knowledge to buy a new car. I found out that, when buying a new car, you need to shop around, talk to a dealer, and get financed.

To buy a new car you first have to shop around. You do not want to go to only one dealership to find the car that you will be driving around for the next few years. You may already know what type of car you want, but do not limit yourself. You need to go to numerous dealerships and look at all different types of cars. Take notes of cars that you found to be appealing to your taste. Jot down the type of car it is, the year of the car, the mileage on the car, the price and where it is located. Now that you have looked at a few dealerships, and have taken some notes about the cars you liked, take them home to go over them. Decide on two or three car that you favor. Read more…

Monetary Policy essay

May 18th, 2010 No comments

Monetary policy refers to the use of interest rates and the level of money supply to manage the economy. Monetary policy may be used to increase the level of economic activity (reflationary policies) or to decrease the level of economic activity (deflationary policies). A relationship therefore exists between monetary supply and the rate of interest. Economic theories have been suggested as to the extent of this relationship. Nevertheless, the monetary authorities may use various monetary policy measures to stimulate economic activity in the country.

The Monetary authorities can establish either the level of money supply or the rate of interest, not both. If the demand for money (liquidity preference) does not change, any change in the supply for money will alter the interest rate. (Refer to monetary policy 1)The diagram supplied shows that an increase in the money supply from MS to MS1 will cause a fall in the interest rate from R to R1. Assuming the monetary authorities fixed the supply of money. A change (increase or decrease) in the demand for money (liquidity preference) will effect a change in the interest rate. The diagram supplied shows that a decrease in the demand for money (L to L1) will reduce the interest rate from R to R1. (Refer to monetary policy 2). Read more…
