Adjustments for Access Intelligencefinancial statements:

This will show us the changes on MS excel, from the changes of the trial balance sheets. The adjustments I have made are the changes in placing the coordinates of each of the numbers from accrued interest revenue to placing of $725 of deferred supplies expense from the companies debit in which they have to pay from their account to their credits on which the company owns and have in their company bank accounts.

Account title




Accrued interest revenue




Deferred service revenue




Accrued salaries expense




Deferred insurance expense




Deferred expense supplies



M2: The adjustments I have made of the trail balance sheet from adding and subtracting the numbers together have should us that the company had gain in revenue and have made a total of net profit of $225 dollars when converted into pounds it shows that the company have made 200.80 pound. This happens by taking 49,460 pounds then adding 800, then 500 and last 725 to get my end debit amount. For debit I added the numbers 750 and 1,500 to get my end result for credit amount. The total amount of number I got for debit was 51,010 and for credit 51,010 then I took the two numbers and minus the two to get my total profit of the company revenue in order to get the final amount balances I had to minus out 500 hundred from the two existing number to get my final result that is 51,010.

By looking at the balance sheet I can see that the company had made a profit in their income and not so much in a loss. The total profit that they have made from $49,460 they have added and subtracted to get their end result of $ 51,010 so their profit in which has risen is $1,010 in profit.


The list of users who uses accounting people

1) Investors: They use account information to see which companies are making a successful amount of profit for the investors to invest their money in and this mostly happens with brokers and stockholders who the people that mostly buy out big companies and developments. On the other hand many other people can invest money into an organization.

2) Bankers: banks use the account people to see on people who put their money into a bank account their earnings and incomes before hey can be allowed to give them aloan to start up a business or invest in a business this makes the loner liable for any loss of the money that he would have to pay back to the bankers in a matter of amount of time.

Governments:Uses accountings to check their countries accounts to make sure they are not making profit and are making a loss by having to many taxes the government would want the countries to make profit in their economy so they places taxes on the community. The government then uses accountings to get documents to check and see if they have paid their fair shares in taxation every year.

Employees:provide creditto the company from their labor work. Employees also uses accountings to check on other companies to see how they are doing in their income statement if it’s good or bad and if that business is making any money or not in the company.

Discussion: On the conventions and regulation impacts on financial statements of accountings.

Monetary measurements:

Accountants do not account for items unless they can be quantified in monetary terms. Items that are not accounted for (unless someone is prepared to pay something for them) include things like workforce skill, moral, market leadership, brand recognition, quality of management and so on.

Separate entity:

This convention seeks to ensure that private transactions and matters relating to the owners of a business are segregated from transactions that relate to the business.


With this convention, accounts recognize transactions (and any profits arising from them) at the point of sale or transfer of legal ownership - rather than just when cash actually changes hands. For example, a company that makes a sale to a customer can recognize that sale when the transaction is legal - at the point of contract. The actual payment due from the customer may not arise until several weeks (or months) later - if the customer has been granted some credit terms.

These are the impacts that can happen from finacials statement regulation from accounting conventions.
