Getting Started: You will need to create the data file. The conversion month is September, choose 12 accounting periods and the "build my own accounts" option. The assignment file name is: ASS22011-StudentID.myo. Enter your name and student number into the company information. This will ensure that any reports that are printed can be identified. Set up a user name, Student, and the password should be your student number (no letters). You must consult with your lecturer in order to have your file further password protected before you start the assignment. If you fail to do this, your assignment will not be accepted.

Part A: Report

The directors have heard that the concept of internal control is very important for strong corporate governance but they don't really understand what it means or how to apply it to their business using MYOB. They have asked you to prepare a fully referenced report in response to their concerns. You should include an explanation of corporate governance, internal control, and describe appropriate internal control measures for Coffee Affectionardo Pty Ltd (800 words maximum).

Part B: Asset Manager

You are to teach yourself Asset Manager, a popular program used to keep track of depreciating assets. Put your initials next to each Asset name and Account name. Demonstrate how Asset Manager may be used to manage the organisation's assets by completing the following activities using the file Ass22011-AM-xxxxxx found on my RMIT.

1. For each of the Fixed Asset types found in the Chart of Accounts/ Assets. create the at cost and Accumulated Depreciation Accounts. Use similar account numbers as found in MYOB.

2. Edit the remaining accounts to match MYOB Bank account 1-1110, Depreciation Expense account 6-1030, Profit on Sale of Asset 8-1000, Loss on Sale of Asset 9-100

3. Record the assets below. Note all items are to be included in the low value pool where this is an option.

4. There will be more instructions on Asset Manager at the end of the assignment.

Part C: Transactions     

The    Chart    of    Accounts    and    Opening    Balances Setup  the  Chart  of  Accounts;  enter  the  accounts  shown  on  the  page  .   You will  need  to design  how  you  want  the  Balance  Sheet  and  Profit  and  Loss  Statements  to  appear.  Appropriate headers and sub-totals will be expected. During the course of the assignment, you may need to create extra accounts and you must add your  initials to the end of these accounts. Enter the opening balances as at 1st  September.
When  all  the  accounts  have  been  entered,  you  should  select  the  Chart  of  Accounts (Summary or Detail)  from the Reports menu.  Check this report to make sure that accounts are in the correct place, that the required account type has been selected, the numbers are appropriate and that account names are spelt correctly.  Ensure that appropriate subtotals will be included in the financial reports.
