Sample text

I didn’t pay cash, actually, Chris; I paid with a cheque. Yes, but, to an accountant, paying cash simply means paying at the time, as distinct from paying in, say, thirty days’ time which many suppliers agree to. Paying by cheque or banker’s draft means that the cash goes out of your bank account almost immediately, so we call that a cash payment. 4 26 Cash Share capital Claims C R E AT I N G A B A L A N C E S H E E T The first stock of silk flowers that Sarah bought had to be paid for at the time of purchase, as the supplier was nervous about SBL’s ability to pay.

This is SBL’s balance sheet immediately after completion of this transaction. 2 22 Assets Claims C R E AT I N G A B A L A N C E S H E E T SBL needed more cash than Sarah could afford to invest herself, so she persuaded her parents to lend the company £10,000. Immediately before this transaction, the balance sheet looks as it did immediately after the last transaction (with £10,000 of cash and £10,000 of share capital). As a result of this transaction, the company has more cash in its bank account.

Notice that, despite the transactions to date, nothing has been done which has made Sarah, as the shareholder, richer or poorer. e. £10,000. 6 30 Share capital Cash Claims Assets Share capital Retained profit Claims C R E AT I N G A B A L A N C E S H E E T SBL sold, for £12,000 paid cash on delivery, stock which had only cost SBL £6,000. The £6,000 profit is not owed to anyone else, so it must belong to the shareholders. This, therefore, is a transaction which affects the shareholders’ wealth. The cash box goes up by £12,000 (since this is how much cash SBL received) and the stock box goes down by £6,000 (since this is the value of the stock sold).
