Financial Reporting – A Critical Information for Stakeholders




In any industry, whether manufacturing or service, we have multiple departments, which function day in day out to achieve organizational goals. The functioning of these departments may or may not be interdependent, but at the end of the day, they are linked together by one common thread – The accounting and finance department. The accounting and financial aspects of every department are recorded and are reported to various stakeholders. There are two different types of reporting for an organization:


  • Financial Reporting for various stakeholders 
  • Management Reporting for internal management


Both this reporting are important and are an integral part of the Accounting and reporting system of an organization. However, considering the number of stakeholders involved, and statutory and other regulatory requirements, Financial Reporting is an essential and critical task of an organization. It is a vital part of Corporate Governance. Let us discuss various aspects of Financial Reporting in the following paragraphs.

Definition of Financial Modelling

Financial Reporting involves the disclosure of financial information to the various stakeholders about the financial performance and financial position of the organization over a specified period. These stakeholders include – investors, creditors, public, debt providers, governments and government agencies. In the case of listed companies, the frequency of financial reporting is quarterly and annual.
Financial Reporting is usually considered an end product of Accounting. The typical components of financial reporting are:


  • Financial statements – Balance Sheet, Profit & loss account, Cash flow statement and Statement of changes in stock holder’s equity
  • Notes to financial statements
  • Quarterly and annual reports (in case of listed companies)
  • Prospectus (In case of companies going for IPOs)
  • Management discussion and analysis (In the case of public companies)

The Government and the Institute of Chartered Accounts of India (ICAI) have issued various accounting standards and guidance notes which are applied for financial reporting. This ensures uniformity across various diversified industries when they prepare and present their financial statements. 

Objectives of Financial Reporting

According to the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB), the objective of financial reporting is:
 to provide information about the financial position, performance, and changes in the financial position of an enterprise that is useful to a wide range of users in making economic decisions.
The following points sum up the objectives and purposes of financial reporting:


  • Providing information to the management of an organization that is used for planning, analysis, benchmarking and decision making.
  • Providing information to investors, promoters, debt provider and creditors which is used to enable them to make rational and prudent decisions regarding investment, credit, etc.
  • Providing information to shareholders and the public at large in case of listed companies about various aspects of an organization.
  • Providing information about the economic resources of an organization claims to those resources (liabilities and owner’s equity) and how these resources and claims have changed over some time.
  • Providing information as to how an organization is procuring and using various resources.
  • Providing information to various stakeholders regarding performance management of an organization as to how diligently and ethically they are discharging their fiduciary duties and responsibilities.
  • Providing information to the statutory auditors, which in turn facilitates audit.
  • Enhancing social welfare by looking into the interest of employees, trade union and Government.

Importance of Financial Reporting

The importance of financial reporting cannot be overemphasized. Each stakeholder requires it for multiple reasons and purposes. The following points highlight why financial reporting framework is important:


  • The organizations are required to file financial statements to ROC, Government Agencies. In the case of listed companies, quarterly as well as annual results are required to be filed to stock exchanges and published.
  • It facilitates a statutory audit. The Statutory auditors are required to audit the financial statements of an organization to express their opinion.
  • Financial Reports form the backbone for financial planning, analysis, benchmarking and decision making. These are used for the above purposes by various stakeholders.
  • Financial reporting helps organizations to raise capital both domestic as well as overseas.
  • Based on financials, the public in large can analyze the performance of the organization as well as its management.
  • For bidding, labor contracts, government supplies, etc., organizations are required to furnish their financial reports and statements.

Conclusion

So we can conclude from the above points that financial reporting is critical from various stakeholder's points of view. At times for large organizations, it becomes very complicated but the benefits are far more than such complexities. We can say that financial reporting contains reliable and relevant information that is used by multiple stakeholders for various purposes. A sound and robust financial reporting system across industries promotes good competition and also facilitates capital inflows. This, in turn, helps in economic development.

Why Mobile Communication Matters for Company Operations ?



Mobile communication is an increasingly important part of every business. In the United States, over 71% of the population owns a smartphone. Instead of fighting the overwhelming presence of smartphones, businesses should lean into the trend by embracing mobile communication. It’s important to your company’s operations for several reasons.

Why Mobile Communication Matters

The most obvious feature of mobile communication is that communication is improved overall. Instead of being out of the loop, operations employees and the mobile workforce can stay in constant communication thanks to wireless networks and mobile platforms.

Analog forms of business communication like bulletin boards and snail mail can finally become relics of the past. And improved communication is crucial. One study from the Holmes Report suggests that companies lose approximately $26,000 per employee per year due to productivity losses resulting from communications barriers. This is a great reason why mobile communication matters.

Improved Efficiency

Mobile solutions can improve efficiency in a myriad of ways, but it is especially helpful to mobile workers who spend their time on the floor or a job site. Mobile solutions increase operations efficiency by cutting down the need for face-to-face meetings and also create increased opportunities for management to communicate with staff.

Improved Organization

Mobile communication can be used to improve the organization by offering file sharing on the go, document collaboration, and many different apps and software that allow employees to access company info anytime. There are also many additional options, like platforms to track customers and sales or organize tasks and who they are assigned to.

Improved Employee Engagement

The right mobile communication solution can increase employee engagement. From the Holmes Report article, "Best Buy found that higher employee engagement scores led to better store performance.

The company found that for every percentage point it boosted employee engagement, individual stores saw a $100,000 increase in operating income annually.” That’s $100,000 per store! Clearly, the ROI of a good mobile communication system is high.

Improved Productivity

There are several ways mobile communication can increase productivity, including many of the reasons listed above. An additional benefit of mobile communication is improved productivity with a mobile workforce that doesn't work in a cubicle.

With mobile solutions, managers can capture the wisdom of their operations staff and apply it to an entire division or department. The employees in the action are most intimate with the challenges their company faces. An enterprise messaging app allows management to capture this valuable intelligence.

While there are clearly many benefits to mobile communication, it’s important to keep in mind that there is always a security risk when using it. That’s why it is so crucial to choose legitimate and qualified platforms and systems. The right mobile solutions will only help your business by allowing your company to take advantage of all the benefits while minimizing security risks.

Why Study Chemistry ?



Chemistry is the study of matter and energy and the interaction between them. There are many reasons to study chemistry, even if you aren't pursuing a career in science.

Chemistry is everywhere in the world around you! It's in the food you eat, clothes you wear, the water you drink, medicines, air, cleaners... you name it. Chemistry sometimes is called the "central science" because it connects other sciences to each other, such as biology, physics, geology, and environmental science. Here are some of the best reasons to study chemistry.


  1. Chemistry helps you to understand the world around you. Why do leaves change color in the fall? Why are plants green? How is cheese made? What is in soap and how does it clean? These are all questions that can be answered by applying chemistry.
  2. Basic knowledge of chemistry helps you to read and understand product labels.
  3. Chemistry can help you make informed decisions. Will a product work as advertised or is it a scam? If you understand how chemistry works you'll be able to separate reasonable expectations from pure fiction.
  4. Chemistry is at the heart of cooking. If you understand the chemical reactions involved in making baked goods rise or neutralizing acidity or thickening sauces, chances are you'll be a better cook.
  5. A command of chemistry can help keep you safe! You'll know which household chemicals are dangerous to keep together or mix and which can be used safely.
  6. Chemistry teaches useful skills. Because it is a science, learning chemistry means learning how to be objective and how to reason and solve problems.
  7. It helps you to understand current events, including news about petroleum, product recalls pollution, the environment, and technological advances.
  8. Makes life's little mysteries a little less... mysterious. Chemistry explains how things work.
  9. Chemistry opens up career options. There are many careers in chemistry, but even if you're looking for a job in another field, the analytical skills you gained in chemistry is helpful. Chemistry applies to the food industry, retail sales, transportation, art, homemaking... really any type of work you can name.
  10. Chemistry is fun! There are lots of interesting chemistry projects, you can do using common everyday materials. Chemistry projects don't just go boom. They can glow in the dark, change colors, produces bubbles and change states.

Do You Know?

Which Bats Make Tents?

A South American bat, Ectophylla alba is known as a tent-making bat. It makes a tent-like shelter from a large leaf attached to the tree. The bats chew away the sides of the leaf around mid-rib so that it hangs down on either side like a tent. They spend the day roosting underneath clinging onto the mid-rib with their claws.

ANT COLONY OPTIMIZATION

The Book
This book introduces the rapidly growing field of ant colony optimization. It gives a broad overview of many aspects of ACO, ranging from a detailed description of the ideas underlying ACO, to the definition of how ACO can generally be applied to a wide range of combinatorial optimization problems, and describes many of the available ACO algorithms and their main applications.

The book first describes the translation of observed ant behaviour into working optimization algorithms. The ant colony metaheuristics is then introduced and viewed in the general context of combinatorial optimization. This is followed by a detailed description and guide to all major ACO algorithms and a report on current theoretical findings. The book surveys ACO applications now in use, including routing, assignment, scheduling, subset, machine learning, and bioinformatics problems. AntNet, an ACO algorithm designed for network routing problem, is described in detail. Each chapter ends with bibliographic material, bullet points setting out important ideas covered in the chapter, and exercises.

The book is intended primarily for
(1) academic and industry researchers in operations research, artificial intelligence, and computational intelligences;

7 Justifications People Use for Unethical or Illegal Acts
Why do good people do bad things?
Alice Boyes, Ph.D., translates principles from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and social psychology into tips people can use in their everyday lives.

Do you know anyone who doesn't report their cash income on their taxes, pilfers office supplies from their workplace, or has done an assignment for their child to help them get a higher grade?

When people do these types of unethical or illegal behaviors, there are a number of psychological factors that go into it. Let's break them down.

Thinking Distortions That Contribute to Unethical and Illegal Behavior
1. The person thinks: "I got away with it once or twice, so it's OK to keep doing it."
When someone does a behavior that's unethical or illegal and doesn't get caught, that tends to make it more likely they'll do it again. Sometimes people reason that not getting found out means that what they did wasn't a big deal. They might think that whatever they did was so small it doesn't count.

If the person took advantage of a loophole or a lack of oversight, they might think, "If the loophole was a big deal, it would've been closed already. More effort would've been put into preventing or catching it." Occasionally people stumble onto a loophole accidentally, but then choose to exploit it, even when doing so is illegal or unethical.

2. "Other people are doing things far worse than I am."
There's a saying: "If you lie with dogs, you'll get fleas." If unethical or illegal behavior is commonplace in the circles someone moves in, it's more likely they'll see it as normal. There will always be someone who is behaving more outrageously than they are whose example they can use to rationalize their own behavior as not so bad.

3. FOMO — Fear of Missing Out
If you see other people succeeding through unethical behavior, then envy can lead to co-opting those behaviors.

4. "I make up for my bad deeds with my good deeds."
If someone does good work in other aspects of their life, they can rationalize that their behavior balances out and is still a net positive. For instance, if they do charity work or help their church. The person might be cheating, stealing, or defrauding a little bit in one domain (e.g., cheating on their taxes), but they think it pales in comparison to their good deeds and prosocial behavior.

5. The ends justify the means.
If someone has good intentions behind their unethical behavior, they might think it's OK. For instance, they're stealing to support their charity organization or help their child.

6. "I've gotten a raw deal in one area, so it's OK if I take advantage in another area to make up for it."
Let's say that someone is facing a big bill for something they see as not their fault. Or they see some situation they've faced as unjust. Perhaps they've gotten a raw deal from a company they've worked for, or from a company or contractor they employed. Perhaps they got unlucky in the financial crisis and lost their home. If people believe they've gotten the short end of the stick in one area, they might think it's only fair that they make up for it by getting an unfair advantage in another domain or at a later time.

7. The person's moral line keeps shifting.
When people do unethical or illegal behavior, their moral line often shifts due to that behavior pattern. For instance, they "borrow" 1-2 stamps from their workplace, then take 5-6, then steal a sheet of 100 stamps.
Wrapping Up

Some people who do unethical or illegal things are antisocial by nature.* They may not have frank Antisocial Personality Disorder, but may have some tendencies in this direction. However oftentimes people slide into unethical or illegal behavior through the cognitive justifications and behavior patterns I've outlined.

*Note that antisocial is not the same as asocial. The meaning of antisocial is quite different than an introvert and refers to rule breaking and low moral conscience. People tend to colloquially say antisocial when they mean asocial.

GRAPH THEORY WITH APPLICATIONS TO ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

The Book
Because of its inherent simplicity, graph theory has a wide range of applications in engineering, and in physical sciences. It has of course uses in social sciences, in linguistics and in numerous other areas. In fact, a graph can be used to represent almost any physical situation involving discrete objects and the relationship among them. Now with the solutions to engineering and other problems becoming so complex leading to larger graphs, it is virtually difficult to analyze without the use of computers.
