Additional Operating Information -


  • All adjustments listed should be included in the restatement of the adjusted trial balance.
  • The Statement of Profit and Loss should show the cost of sales, gross profit, distinguish between Administration, Selling and Financial Expenses and show the before and after income tax profit or loss.
  • Other expenses should be part of Administration Expenses unless otherwise specified.
  • Office related expenses should be treated as Administrative Expenses.
  • Sales and Workshop related expenses should be treated as Selling Expenses.
  • The salary related expenses of the MD should be included in Selling Expenses.
  • The company operates a financial year end of 30 June and prepares a Business Activity Statement annually. GST owing is paid in July each year and company tax of 30% is paid in September each year.
  • Depreciation is calculated using the diminishing balance method at the rates shown in the Depreciation Schedule below.
  • Tax depreciation is the same as Accounting Depreciation so there are no deferred tax assets or liabilities associated with non-current assets.
  • The COGS account is treated as a clearing account for the purchase and sale of inventory and is not required to be used for calculations in the general purpose financial statements.

Cost of sales in the statement of Profit and Loss should be calculated as follows:

  • Opening Inventory
  • Add: Purchases
  • Less Purchase Returns and Allowances
  • Less: Discounts Received
  • Add: Freight Inwards
  • Cost of goods available for sale
  • Less Closing Inventory
  • Cost of sales

Notes on Sales and Inventory

  • All Sales revenue and Purchases attract 10% GST. Sales and Purchase figures in the unadjusted trial balance are net of GST. That is GST Outlays and Collection accounts are used to determine GST payable ore receivable for the annual Business Activity Statement (BAS).
  • All sales and purchases of inventory are on credit.
  • Daisy Textiles provides discounts to some customers to encourage payments within 7 days.
  • Daisy Textiles receives some discounts for bulk purchases of inventory from suppliers.

Notes related to Employees' salaries

  • Superannuation is payable on total gross salary. Refer to Schedule of Employees' Salaries and Leave entitlements for details.
  • Full time staff (excluding the MD) are entitled to 2 weeks accumulating annual leave. (Note: this is in addition to the paid compulsory 4 week closedown period in December and January meaning that staff receive 6 weeks paid leave per annum).
  • Full time staff receive up to 2 weeks paid sick leave per annum. Sick leave is non-accumulating therefore there is no provision for sick leave.
  • Fulltime employees (excluding the MD) are entitled to 3 months Long Service Leave (LSL) on full pay after completing 10 years' of service. All employees are very loyal and are expected to reach the 10 years' of service. In addition if any employee leaves the organisation prior to this date they are entitled to a pro-rata payment for long service leave. This represents a present obligation and therefore a provision is required. The Provision for LSL should be treated as a non-current liability.
  • All Staff (excluding the MD) receive an annual bonus equivalent to 10% of their salary. The bonus amount is included in gross salary and attracts income tax and compulsory superannuation payments.
  • Salaries for full time staff and hourly rates for part-time staff (except the MD) increase 3% per annum.
