Accounting and Financial Analysis

A financial analysis is an evaluation of the viability, stability, and profitability of a company, division, or project. It is carried out by experts who create reports using ratios and other approaches based on data from financial statements and other reports. These reports are often provided to upper management as one of the foundations upon which company decisions are made. Financial research can help evaluate if a company will:

  • Continue or halt its core operation or a portion of its business;
  • Make or buy certain materials for the production of its product;
  • Purchase or rent/lease certain machinery and equipment for the manufacturing of its commodities;
  • To enhance its operating capital, it can issue stock or seek bank loan.
  • Make investment or lending capital decisions;
  • Make additional decisions that will enable management to make an educated judgment on numerous possibilities in the operation of its business.

Programme Structure

Accounting Fundamentals

Some of the basic accounting terms that you will learn include revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities, income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows. You will become familiar with accounting debits and credits as we show you how to record transactions.

Revenue Recognition 

Revenue recognition is an accounting principle that outlines the specific conditions under which revenue. In accounting, the terms “sales” and “revenue” can be, and often are, used interchangeably, to mean the same thing. Revenue does not necessarily mean cash received. is recognized.

Accounting for Current Assets and Liabilities

On a balance sheet, assets will typically be classified into current assets and long-term assets. The current ratio is calculated by dividing total current assets by total current liabilities. It is frequently used as an indicator of a company’s liquidity, which is its ability to meet short-term obligations.

Non-current Assets

Non-current assets are assets which represent a longer-term investment and cannot be converted into cash quickly. They are likely to be held by a company for more than a year. Examples of non-current assets include land, property, investments in other companies, machinery and equipment.

Intangible Assets

An intangible asset is an asset that lacks physical substance; in contrast to physical assets, such as machinery and buildings, and financial assets such as government securities. An intangible asset is usually very hard to evaluate.

Research and Development Costs

Research and development costs are the costs incurred in a planned search for new knowledge and in translating such knowledge into new products or processes. Other companies capitalised those costs that related to proven products and expended the rest as incurred.


In financial accounting, a provision is an account which records a present liability of an entity. The recording of the liability in the entity’s balance sheet is matched to an appropriate expense account in the entity’s income statement.

The Analysis Framework

In summary, an analytical framework is used as it, Underpins, supports and guides the collection, collation, storage and analysis of data by identifying key analytical outputs and products at each step of the analysis. Provides a way to organise what data to collect and how to analyse it.

Financial Instruments

A financial instrument is a monetary contract between parties. We can create, trade, or modify them. We can also settle them. A financial instrument may be evidence of ownership of part of something, as in stocks and shares. Bonds, which are contractual rights to receive cash, are financial instruments.

Group Accounting

Group accounts are prepared in accordance with the substance over form concept. While the parent and subsidiary are separate legal entities, group accounts are prepared as if they were a single entity.
