Financial Statements ACC/280 May 01, 2012 Edward Vargas Financial Statements Accounting is extremely important by monitoring the functions of the companies, and allowing them to make appropriate financial transactions and decisions.

This generally occurs when a company has incurred more expenses than revenues during the period. The net operating loss for the company can generally be used to recover past tax payments or reduce future tax payments. The reasoning behind this is that because corporations are required to pay taxes when they earn money, they also deserve some form of tax relief when they lose money. Investopedia explains 'Net Operating Loss - NOL' If a company has a net operating loss, it can apply this tax relief in two ways: it can apply the net operating loss to its past tax payments and receive a tax credit; or it could apply the net operating loss to future income tax payments, reducing the need to make payments in future periods. The terms of the tax relief and how it can be applied varies by jurisdiction but usually the NOL can be applied to the past few years (two to three) and much more to the future (seven to 10) years.
Separate Transaction reasoning: There are three main reasons why the Veritas shares should be divested in a separate transaction. The first one is to escape tax. Separating the deal in different transactions, and using a tax-free stock swap, implies that stocks are not sold ( if company as a whole were to be sold ) , therefore escaping from a huge tax liability bill. The second one it’s obvious. The value to the separate transitions would be higher than a combined one.
Federal subsidies are a contentious point in public economics. They are supposed to benefit small businesses in theory but in reality large corporations are usually the ones that gain the most. This paper seeks to determine if there is any advantage to granting federal subsidies. An analysis of the impact federal subsidies (independent variable) have on the amount of corporate taxes paid (dependent variable) will determine the extent of the social benefits of subsidies. Subsidies in effect lower the cost of production which implies that, other things equal, profits should increase for a given quantity of output.
ECO/372 Learning Team Aggregate Demand and Supply Models The Keynesian economists would look at the current proposal of increasing taxes as a governmental expression of the intermediate approach to the economy. The government taking control and having the people pay the price for their higher tax bracket. These funds would be used to decrease the amount of money owed by the United States. The effects of the economy would be absorbed and educated responses would be to lessen those impacts. To increase their taxes would be appropriate and this would be stream lining taxes at a time when the economy needs a boost.
If the gross profit falls from one year to the next or is thought to be too low the firm may need to decrease the costs of its purchases or may try to increase the sales without increasing the cost of the goods sold. The same thing applies to the net profit margin if it is too low or falls year on year then the business may need to look for cheaper premises or cut staffing costs. Return on Capital Employed will be used to see if an investment is worth the capital outlay, if the return from the capital outlay is higher than the interest offered by banks for money invested then the outlay is justified. you then have to talk about Liquidity,The Debtors’ and creditors’ and then an overview of it all
Corporate Social Disclosures and Accounting Theories Abstract This study reviews the use of accounting theory in explaining corporate social disclosure behaviour. The synthesis research of accounting disclosure and corporate social responsibility research is examined. Specifically the use of the positive accounting theory is analysed, but also critical studies on the use of this theory. Also legitimacy theory was used in the past as the theoretical basis for corporate social disclosures, which is also discussed on its merits. Voluntary accounting disclosure research, which has not been used to explain social disclosures in the past, is examined for its usefulness.
