Thus retained profit must also go down by £3,000. So the box you have been calling ‘retained profit’ all this time is really all the profit the company has made less what is paid out to the shareholders. Hence the term ‘retained’ profit? Correct. 15 Thanks to a mix-up in administration, SBL has not received a bill for its telephone and fax usage for the year. We know, however, that a bill will appear sooner or later and Sarah estimates that it will be for around £2,000. We included sales in our balance sheet even when they were not paid for at the time of delivery.

I’d obviously write her off in the first case. In the second, I’d be more than a little interested, provided she didn’t have any more sick relatives. Exactly. My point is that, as well as knowing what Sarah’s net worth is and by how much it has changed since last year, an explanation of why she only got £5,000 richer during the year can be very important. If we’re going to make a sensible judgement about a company’s future performance, we need a similar explanation. This is what a P&L gives you.

This, therefore, is a transaction which affects the shareholders’ wealth. The cash box goes up by £12,000 (since this is how much cash SBL received) and the stock box goes down by £6,000 (since this is the value of the stock sold). Hence the assets bar goes up by a net £6,000. We create a new box on the claims bar called retained profit and give it a height of £6,000. This means the claims bar goes up by £6,000 and the balance sheet remains in balance. You will remember that the claims of the shareholders (’shareholders’ equity ’) are made up of the capital invested plus the retained profit.
