This unit begins with interpreting basic income statements and answering simple questions about the information contained in them. There are income statements to be completed using data (but with excel formulae already in place to calculate the gross and net profits), followed by questions that need to be answered about the information. Continuing on, there are “several” tasks that incorporate both the “trading account” and the “profit and loss account” with questions focusing on cost of sales analysis. Building from this, there are tasks where income statements need to be completed with the data provided and using excel formula (or using manual calculations) and analysis of this information. There are “several” tasks where income statements need to be compared, analysed and interpreted. At the end of the unit, there are general theory questions followed by exam style questions.
