1. Discuss what types of organisations these are and how this might affect the types of accounts they produce and who might use them and how. 2. Compare the business environment factors which might have affected the two organisations in the year and how these would be reflected in the accounts - and how the organisation uses them to explain what the accounts reveal.
3. Conduct, for each organisation, an analysis of this year's performance against the previous year (2010). You need to demonstrate that you have been able to read and utilise the income statement, the statement of assets and liabilities. You also need to demonstrate an understanding of the cash positions of each organisation, including their risks and strengths. This need to be a substantial piece of writing in which your present your numerical findings and explain them in the particular organisational context. You can use as many tables and graphs. 4. Compare and contrast how social and environmental issues are dealt with in the accounts for the two organisations. Why might they be different?
