# 3.4 The net value of the business and the accounting equation

 Page 1 / 1

## To calculate the ownership interest of the business [lo 3.5]

If the owner of a business decides to sell the business, the price he wants for it will probably be equal to the net value. The net value is linked to the owners interest in the bussiness.

The assets of the business represent value. The owner of the business can claim whatever remains once the creditors have been paid. This can be expressed in the basic accounting equation, namely Assets = Ownership interest + Liabilities.

The firm, AJAX Dealers, owned the following assets:

Cash in bank - R 580

Land and buildings - R130 000

Furniture - R 6 785

Office equipment - R7 800

Debtors - R5 000

Delivery vehicle - R50 000

The firm owes the following amounts:

Cumpen Bookshop - R8 400

CD Equipment - R2 900

ELFI Furniture - R1 765

## [lo 3.5]

Every day transactions are concluded in the business world. These are events that can be measured in terms of money. These transactions, are the transfer of value from one party to another and always have an effect on the accounting equation.

 TYPE OF TRANSACTION EFFECT ON ACCOUNTING EQUATION 1 Capital contribution by the owner 1 Assets + Cash in bank increases Ownership interest + Capital increases 2 Withdrawal of capital by the owner (taking the money of the business for own use) 2 Assets – Cash in bank decreases Ownership interest – Withdrawals increase, reducing the capital 3 Purchase of assets for cash Assets + Assets purchased, e.g. equipment, vehicles etc., increase Assets –Cash in bank decreases 4 Payment of expenditure such as telephone, licence, water and electricity 4 Assets – Cash in bank decreases Ownership interest – Expenditure such as telephone, rental, licence, etc. increase, reducing the owner’s profit 5 Receipt of money for services provided 5 Assets+ Cash in bank increases Ownership interest + Income increases. Current income increases, increasing the owner’s profit

## Assignment 1:

Indicate the effect of the following transactions in the table:

1 The owner deposits R5 000 in the bank account of the business.

2 The business purchases equipment to the value of R2 000 for cash.

4 Pays office rental of R1 000 for the month.

5 The owner draws a business cheque for his own use, R200.

Show that the accounting equation still balances..

 No. Assets:Influence Assets:Reason Owner’s equity: Influence Owner’s equity:Reason

## Assignment 2

Analyse the following transactions of Situ Dealers using the columns in the table below:

1 A building is purchased from Kalahari Ltd. and R17 000 is paid by cheque.

2 Caledon Suppliers are paid R163 by cheque for cleaning materials.

3 The owner, W. Wilmans, deposits additional capital of R5 000.

4 W. Wilmans draws a business cheque of R250 to pay for repairs to his house.

5 R1 000 rental for offices is paid.

6 He pays R500 to Eskom for electricity.

7 R850 is received for services provided.

 No. Assets:Influence Assets:Reason Owner’s equity: Influence Owner’s equity:Reason

## Assessment

 Learning Outcomes(LOs) LO 3 Management, Consumer and Financial Knowledge and SkillsThe learner will be able to demonstrate knowledge and the ability to apply responsibly a range of managerial, consumer and financial skills. Assessment Standards(ASs) We know this when the learner: 3.1 differentiates between financial concepts used in business (e.g. fixed assets, current assets, liabilities, owner’s equity); 3.2 develops leadership and management strategies that will ensure a return on investments; 3.3 completes source documents (e.g. receipts, deposit slips, cheques) and records elementary cash transactions in a statement of receipts and payments; 3.4 uses keyboard skills and function keys in developing, storing and retrieving basic information; 3.5 explains the concept and analyses a statement of net worth; 3.6 investments the various methods of savings and investments (e.g. savings accounts, fixed deposits, shares, unit trusts), and calculates on a variety of investments.

## Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1:

Ownership interest = A – L

O = 200 165 – 13 065

O = 187 100

187 100 = 200 165 – 13 065

ACTIVITY 2:

what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej
Abigail
for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
in general
s.
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
