Concepts of Income

Accrual Basis

cash basis income
Cash Basis Income

Income = Cash inflow - Cash outflow

Not reported as income under GAAP

Reported in Statement of Cash Flows as net cash flow from operating activities

Based on concept of “well-offness”

Economic Income is the maximum amount that can be distributed to owners during the accounting period and leave the business as well off at the end of the accounting period as it was at the beginning of the period

economic income6
Economic Income
  • A Capital maintenance concept of income
  • Income is the change in “value” of the net assets of the business during the accounting period
  • Measurements of assets and liabilities would be based on “fair value” at the balance sheet date, i.e., the present value of expected future cash flows
accounting income accrual basis income
Accounting IncomeAccrual Basis Income
  • Transactions based
  • The change in net assets is measured utilizing historical cost (with modifications)
  • A financial capital maintenance concept of income
accrual basis income characteristics
Accrual Basis IncomeCharacteristics
  • Revenue recognized when earned
  • Expenses matched with revenue
  • Based on historical cost

Income =

Revenue + Gains

- Expenses - Losses

sfac 1 enterprise performance earnings
SFAC 1: Enterprise Performance & Earnings
  • The primary focus of financial reporting
  • Expectations about future performance are commonly based on past performance
  • Accrual based earnings provide a better indication of performance than cash flows
  • Relate Benefits and Costs of Operations, Events & Circumstances that affect the Enterprise
accrual basis accounting income
Accrual Basis Accounting Income
  • Consistent with the concept of Financial Capital Maintenance

6. Understand corporate risk and profitability analysis, using the basic ratios and categories of ratios

profitability analysis
Profitability analysis

The most common measure is return on assets (ROA) calculated as follows:

Net income + [(Interest expense) x (1 - Tax rate)]

Average total assets

return on assets
Return on assets
  • Measures the return on the average capital invested in assets during the accounting period.
  • Since both lenders and stockholders provide capital, ROA includes income before interest and its associated tax benefit.
risk analysis
Risk Analysis
  • ROA ignores the means by which operations are financed.
  • Also, investors are interested in the return to common stock
  • Hence, a frequent adjustment is to calculate the return on equity (ROE), sometimes called return on common equity (ROCE)
return on common equity
Return on common equity

Return on assets

Less: Return to creditors

Less: Return to preferred shareholders

Equals: Return to common shareholders


Net income - preferred dividends
