Week 2 notes part 2

KCQ’s for chapter 2 of study guide

  • GST collected (that is, the GST a firm has collected from its customers on behalf of the government and which the firm ‘owes’ to the government).
  • GST paid (that is, the GST a firm has paid to its suppliers on goods and services
    supplied to the firm by its suppliers. The firm can generally recover this amount from the government, because GST is generally only payable by the end consumer and thefirm is usually just part of the value chain leading to the end consumer).
  • GST payments/refunds (that is, payments of GST by the firm to the government, where GST collected by the firm exceeds GST paid by the firm; and refunds of GST receivedby the firm from the government, where GST paid by the firm exceeds GST collected by the firm).
  • The GST collected account will always have a credit balance (it is a liability from the firm’s perspective).
  • The GST paid account will always have a debit balance (it is an asset from the firm’s perspective).
  • Most firms will enter a lot of their transactions into specialised journals have into one general journal.
  • A firm’s accounting records of its transactions and the record of its transactions in its bank account will usually not be the same at any point of time.
  • The governments of most countries tax the profits of firms. The corporate tax rate on a firm’s profits in Australia is currently 30% (27.5% for smaller companies,)
  • Given that depreciation is simply an estimate by firms of how much of its non-current assets are being used up each year, the government realises that firms might be tempted to estimate larger deprecation charges to reduce its taxable income (and reduce the amount of money it needs to send to the tax department each year).
  • Governments usually set out depreciation rates in their tax legislation that they permit firms to use for various types of non-current assets to calculate depreciation when calculating a firm’s taxable income.

Week 2 notes

Hi guys, im sorry about the late upload im running a little behind. It was a bad week last week for my little man so i looked after him it will always be him before my uni sorry. I upload a section on week 2 but i hadn’t read the study guide now that i have a have a lot of notes and also my assignment 2 its a bit late for comments but i thought I’d upload it anywhere for you guys to compare it too. There is a few grammar and spelling mistakes. Thank you in advance. Assesment 1 step two ACCT11081

P.s. my assignment stopped wherr it did, necause it wqs already so long but i know there are lots more KCQ’s.

I will upload my notes over a couple uploads so uou dont have one really massive one. Please remeber to log into peerwise and complete some questions i have put more up for week 2.

KCQ’s from chapter 2 of study guide

  • Rote-memorise (I didn’t know what this was when I first read the word I had to read further along to find out what it meant.) and reproduce technical facts does not work well to get good grades in assessment in aa university unit or learn anything of value to us.
  • Increase in an asset is a debit, asset + expenses = liabilities + revenue + equity, LS is a debit, RS is a credit.
  • Central idea of business is to add value.
  • A firm’s ledger is where all the transactions of a firm that are recorded reside. It is where they lie or are laid down. The ledger is made up of several accounts, comprising various assets, liabilities, equity, revenue and expenses.
  • Subsidiary ledgers for those accounts in the general ledger where a firm wants to record further detail. Accounts that often have subsidiary ledgers are Accounts receivable, Accounts payable, Plant and equipment (and other types of non-current assets) and Inventories.
  • Accounts receivable which would set out the total amounts it is owed by all its customers at any point of time. It would also want to have individual accounts for each of its customers so it could easily keep track of how quickly each customer is paying its accounts with Coffee Supreme and whether any customer is breaching the agreed credit terms between them.
  • Depreciation is the amount by which the value of a non-current asset is being reduced in a firm’s accounts each year to approximate the reduction in value of the asset because of it having reduced future benefits to a firm over time.
  • The key thing to remember about subsidiary ledgers is that they are supplementary accounts that provide additional detail to support the balance in a control account. Also, remember that before the widespread use of computers the various subsidiary ledgers were separate actual books. Keeping them physically separate from the big general ledger of a firm was practical in that it allowed people to access and use the detail from a subsidiary ledger separately from the general ledger.
  • People start handling ‘other people’s money’ there can be opportunities for people to start using a firm’s resources for their own personal benefit.
  • We can set up some boundaries around the trust we give people in a firm through a range of techniques, including installing closed-circuit TV in a firm’s warehouse and completing police background checks on potential new employees before we employ them.
  • The controls a firm can put in place to protect its assets from theft (particularly by employees) are called, unsurprisingly, internal controls.
  • The GST rate in Australia is 10%.
  • Accounting is ‘live’ and on the move because business is living and always on the move.

Key points for week 2

Hi guys,

I’ve managed to get some quite time today so i’ve tried to knuckle down to gets some of this unit completed. I have come up with a few key concepts that again i am going to  put up in my blog so anyone including myself can go back to, to refresh there mind.

Three things to memorise;

  • Increase in an asset is a debit
  • Assets + Expenses = Equity + Revenue + Liabilities 
  • LH Side are debits; RH Side are credits


  • Income Statement: Exclusive GST
  • Balance Sheet: Exclusive GST 
  • Cashflow Statement: Inclusive GST

Accounting is a language it is used to communicate financial position and it does this through a balance sheet. It also communicates financial performance and it does this using an income statement.

The revenue belongs to the business. The business is responsible for the expenses.

Revenue: Income which arises in the course of ordinary activities of an entity.        Expenses: Cost of services or economic benefits consumed or lost or liabilities incurred during the period in the generation of revenue. 

                                                  Revenue is an increase in equity                                                   Expenses are an decrease in equity

The only other things that affect equity are investments by the owner and withdrawals (for personal use) by the owner.

Equity =Investment by the owner- drawings by the owner + revenue – expense 

                                                          Assets have a debit nature                                                                                                             Liabilities have a credit nature                                                   Equity has a credit nature

                                                  An increase in an asset is a debit                                                                                                        A decrease in an asset is a credit                                                                                                         An increase in a liability is a credit                                                                                                      A decrease in a liability is a debit                                                                                                         An increase in equity is a credit                                                    A decrease in equity is a debit

A ledger is a book that contains ACCOUNTS. One for every account that is affected by trasactions during the accounting period. Whwre effect of transactions is recorded three basic parts, title, place for recording increases, place for recording decreases.

In the ledger an account is established for each type of;

                                                                              Asset                                                                                                                                                        Liability                                                                                                                                                      Equity                                                                                                                                                       Income                                                                                Expense

When writing a ledger there are 4 steps to the cycle;

                                                 1. Recognise and record transactions                                                                                                      2.Journalise transactions                                                                                                                   3. Post to ledger accounts                                                         4. Prepare trail balance 

Thanks for reading guys i will talk to you again soon when i get a chance.

Talk soon.

Week 1

Hi everyone i’m just checking in seeing as i dont get much time to do that having a gorgoues kid to look after. I am going to try and have a new post every couple of days just updating you on how my degree is going and what i have learnt as well as all my drafts for assesment.

This post is designed to help me and you guys, so if anyone ever needs a quick recap just look back into my past posts and see what i have summarised. This week i’ve red the study guide 1.1-1.4 and this is what i have come up with.

ASSET – A resource controlled by the entity as a result of post events and from which future ecomonic benefits are expected to flow to the entity.

LIABILITIES – A present obligationof the entity arising from past events, the settlement of which is expected to result in an outflow from the entity of resources embodying economic benefits.

EQUITY – The residual interest in the assets of the entity after deducting all it’s liabilities.

Assets, liabilities and equity accounts measure value of a firm. The current value of a firm as expressed in it’s assets and liabilities (and the current value of the interests of a firms equity investors as expressed in it’s equity).

A profit is an increase in value amd a loss is a decrease in value. We transfer the profit or loss to a firm’s euity at the end of a period. We then start the next period with zero amounts in our revenue and expense accounts.

Revenue are additiins to equity as a result of increases to assets or reductions in liabilities of a firm. Revenue increases the value of the interests of our equity investors in a firm and expenses reduce the value of the interests of our equity investors in a firm.

If a firms revenues are greater than it’s expenses during a period, then the firm has added value for it’s equity investors. If the firms expenses are greater than it’s revenues during a period then thefirm has reduced value for it’s equity investors.

The difference between the fundamental accounting equation and the extended fundamental accounting equation (EFAE) is that the EFAE has the extra account of Revenue and Expenses.

Extended fundamental accounting Equation

Assets = Equity + (Revenue – Expenses) + Liabilities
Assets + Expenses = Equity + Revenue + Liabilities

These are the notes i think are important to remember in the section 1.1-1.4 i am currently working on my assignment step 1 and will keep you guys informed and put up my draft once completed. Make sure you guys are logging onto peerwise to answer questions and put up your own i have currently put up a couple relating to sections 1.1-1.4.
