Financial Analysis Report: Smart Computer Case or Group Task 2

Financial Analysis Report: Smart Computer Case or Group Task 2



Two optional cases are available to handle this separate task. Case Option 1 is developed based on the financial results prepared in Group Assignment 2. Case Option 2 is a hypothetical case – a smart computer. Only one of them should be worked on in this task.

Each case option has different requirements. However, the overall structure of this task is the same. Therefore, the evaluation weights and grades are the same for both options. Both options require completion of the Financial Analysis Report, Budget and Variance Analysis, and CVP Analysis.

In general, we recommend going with case option 1. Selection of case option 2 requires instructor approval. You can discuss your selections with your instructor no later than 5:30 PM on Thursday, February 21, 2019.

Take the income statement and balance sheet you created in the second group exercise. Based on the company’s cost estimates, she will prepare both financial statements for the next two months. Pro forma financial reports eliminate the need to re-enter date adjustments for transactions, balances, and balance sheets. However, the amounts in the pro forma financial statements should be logical. Your account must be balanced. Justify the estimated figures if necessary. You can compare and view financial reports for three consecutive months (accounting format for “smart computers” below). Additional grades are considered to produce the required financial statements.

The following financial reports relate to Smart Computers, a sole proprietor for the years ended March 31, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Smart Computers sells Dell computers in the Mount Wellington area of ​​Auckland.
