CDA Accounting and Financial Reporting

The main purpose of accounting and financial analysis reporting is to display an accurate and fair picture of the financial affairs of the business. CDA takes the following steps to help a company complete its Accounting and Financial Analysis Reporting process.

1. Double Entry System

CDA helps the company prepare the double-entry system. The double-entry system of accounting or bookkeeping means that for every business transaction, the sums must be recorded in a minimum of two accounts. In this system, the sums recorded as debits must be equal to the sums recorded as credits. Proper data entry is the prime responsibility for accurate reporting.

As stated by the rule of debit and credit, debit the account when an asset increases; and credit the account when liability increases.

2. Ledger Entry

A Ledger Entry is a recorded statement of the business transactions of a company.

It should include: -

  • The correct date 
  • The totals to be debited and credited
  • The account of the transaction 
  • A unique reference number (URN)

CDA prepares the Ledger Entry on the bases of the debit and the credit of the accounts and ensures proper and accurate closing of ledgers as per the requirement of the management reporting.

3.Trial Balance

CDA prepares the trial balance for the company after preparing the Ledger. A trial balance is the list of all the general ledger accounts of both revenue and capital recorded in the ledger of a business. This list covers the name of each nominal ledger account and the value of that nominal ledger balance. Each nominal ledger account carries either a debit balance or a credit balance.

4. Financial Statements

Finally, after collecting all the relevant data, CDA goes for the Financial Statement preparation for the company.  CDA also offers Finalization of Financial Statement Services to help clients verify their accounting records for better financial planning.

There are four financial statements that every company must prepare and every investor should look at: –

  • Comparative Income Statement
  • Customers and suppliers ageing report

a. Income Statement

The purpose of the income statement is to get the net income of the company for the financial year. CDA considers all the financial transactions, including non-cash ones and analyzes the revenues and expenses of the company to find out the profit for the year.

b. Balance Sheet

Balance Sheet is prepared on the basis of the equation – ‘Assets = Liabilities + Shareholders’ Equity”. It shows the financial position of the company.

c. Shareholders’ Equity Statement

The shareholders' equity statement is a financial record that a company issues as part of its balance sheet. It is highly recommendable for limited liability companies, who have more than two partners, showing transaction wise details of parties.

d. Cash Flow Statement

  • Cash flow from functioning activities 
  • Cash flow from financing activities

 CDA analyze all the losses and profits of the company. Then all losses are added and all profits are subtracted to find out the net cash inflow for the financial year.
