Format

Your report should be based on the scenario of the New Tasty Baked Bean:

You have developed a new tasty baked bean product, which you believe could revolutionise the baked bean market. The cost to produce a jar of the bake been is £1.10. After careful market research, you decide to sell it at £2.40 per jar, and you have set a 12 month sales plan.

Following on from the Dragon’s Den success stories – (search in BBC iPlayer if you are unfamiliar with this programme), you have decided to present a report to a small group of potential investors.

You know that any potential investor will expect you to have a good knowledge of how much your product will cost to produce and also of the expected level of sales and profit your product is predicted to make.

 

REQUIRED:

  1. Prepare a 12 months sales and production plan table (in unit and money measures), then use the following format to present the sale price, production cost and gross profit for your product on a ‘per unit’ base and a 12 month base.

 

  Per jar (£)   12 month (£)
Sales
Cost
Gross profit

 

 

 

 

  1. Produce the following financial documents for the first 12 months of trading:
    1. Cash Budget                            (month by month)
    2. Forecast Income Statement    (for the year)
    3. Forecast Balance Sheet          (for the year)

 

 

  1. Write a 1,000 word report to your potential investors to explain the financial data from tasks 1 and 2 above. This report should include the essential components of: Introduction, Main Section, and Conclusion.

 

The purpose of the report is to sell the idea of your new product to potential investors, and persuade them to invest. As this is an accounting and finance module, the emphasis must be financial.

 

Your potential investors will want to know what return they can expect on their investment. As a minimum they will expect you to provide details of the following:

  • forecast turnover & profit
  • forecast value of the business
  • forecast cash flow

You should refer to the data and financial documents from tasks 1 & 2 and include them in the form of appendices to your report.

 

NOTE:

 

Word count 1,000(+/- 10% is acceptable) and a word counts significantly less or more than this may be penalised. All calculations, tables, bibliography (or reference list) and appendixes are not included in the word count.
