Assets are equal to liabilities. Although shown separately, capital is a type of liability as it is owed by the business to its owners. The double-entry system records the profit earned by the business as an addition to the owner’s investment in the business: assets = liabilities + capital This is called the accounting equation. However, a more common presentation of the Balance Sheet is in a vertical format, as follows: Assets: Equipment Inventory Debtors Bank 25,000 11,000 5,000 16,000 57,000 Less liabilities: Creditors 6,000 51,000 Capital: Owner’s original investment Plus profit for period 50,000 1,000 51,000 The accounting equation can therefore be restated as: capital (£51,000) = assets (£57,000) − liabilities (£6,000) There are some important points to note about the above example: 1 The purchase of equipment of £25,000 has not affected profit (although we will consider depreciation in Chapter 6).

However, these same accounting tools and techniques can be used to help evaluate the performance of customers, suppliers and competitors in order to improve competitive advantage. This is called strategic management accounting, which is described in Chapter 4. Accounting should also extend beyond a narrow concern with financial measurement and encompass non-financial performance measurement, a subject of steadily increasing importance for those managers who are responsible for achieving performance targets, as well as for accountants (performance measurement is also described in Chapter 4).
