SUBJECT:        INTERNSHIP REPORT ON DANE FOODS LIMITED


Internship report on any organization is a necessary element to get the MBA degree from any
university. I have written an internship report on Dane Foods Limited and review its financial
accounting system and its ratio analysis.


My major recommendation is this: Dane Foods Limited should improve their financial accounting
systems, and also establish Internal Audit department to avoid the future complications. That
conclusion was arrived at after three months extensive practical training in the financial
accounting department of the company. Besides this, financial statements also reviewed for the
three years from June 30, 1996-1998.


As a result of my analysis company’s official agreed on my suggestions and wanted to implement
them in near future. I am grateful to my seniors, colleges, and subordinates who assist me to
complete this comprehensive report in an excellent way.


If the members of the review committee of this report have any additional questions, I Inshallah
will try my best to do it more well way.


At last I thankful to the University who give me an opportunity to review the financial accounting
system of the company and for analysis of the financial statements as well.

                       EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

TITLE:                 AN INTERNSHIP REPORT ON
                       DANE FOODS LIMITED

AUTHORIZATION          This report is a necessary part of MBA degree program.
REOCMMENDATION:        Department of management sciences of the university advised to
                       Every student to submit. It was done after the completion of all
                       subjects. The main purpose of this report is, review of the
                       finance & accounting systems of the organization. Find out their
                       weaknesses and give suggestions for improvements. I strongly
                       recommend that company should adop an effective internal
                       control system and also establish internal audit department to
                       overcome their weakness.

PROCESS OF REVIEW      Data from June 30, 1996-1998 were taken for analysis, and also
METHODOLOGY:           financial accounting practices followed by the company seen
                       practically, whether the company adopted them according to the
                       international accounting standards or not. I had been working in
                       this organization since five years. So I was in a better position to
                       review the system in an efficient way.

PROBLEMS:              A central problem in the financial accounting systems of the
                       company is, accounts are prepared on monthly basis but
                       reconciliation of individual accounts not made on monthly basis.
                       That work does on every audit which is conduct on the end of
                       financial year. Another problem is, insufficient accounts staff.
                       Work done by one person directly checked by Manager
                       Accounts. Internal control system is not implemented properly.

                       Likewise, internal audit department is not also functioning in the
                       company. Controls and check systems on the documents and
                       persons are also found weak in the company.

                       I point out those weak areas, and hope that company if, adopted
                       my suggestion and recommendation can overcome the problems.
                       This will also benefit for the other systems of the company.

TIME FRAME:            Finally, if the recommendation is accepted the program could be
                       put into effect within six months.

CHAPTER 6:                       FINANCIAL ANALYSIS



6.1.            INTRODUCTION ABOUT FINANCIAL ANALYSIS

Financial analysis is designed to determine the relative strengths and weaknesses of a company.

Financial analysis concentrates on financial statement analysis, which highlights the key aspects

of a firm’s operation. Financial statement analysis involves a study of the relationships between

income statement and balance sheet accounts, how these relationships change overtime (trend

analysis) and how a particular firm compares with other firms in its industry (comparative

analysis). Although financial analysis has limitation, when used with care and judgment, it can

provide some very useful in sights into the operations of a company.

The income statement summarizes the firm’s revenues and expenses over the past year. Earning

per share (EPS) is called “the bottom line”, denoting that all of the items on the income statement,

EPS is the most important.

The Balance Sheet shows the firm’s assets and the claims against those assets. It portrays the

financial condition at a point in time. Assets, found on the left-hand side of the balance sheet, are

typically shown in the order of their liquidity. Claims, found on the right-hand side are generally

listed in the order in which they must be paid.

Trend analysis looks at the trend of single ratio overtime. Trend analysis can provide clues as to

whether the firm’s financial situation is improving, holding constant, or deteriorating.

Comparative analysis compares the firm’s ratios with industry average ratios and/or the ratios of

leading competitors. Such analysis provides insights into the firm’s relative performance.

Commons size analysis is another technique for analyzing a firm’s financial statements.

To create common size statements, all income statement items are divided by sales, and total

assets divide all balance sheet items. Thus, a common size income statement shows each item as




                                                          48
Internship Report on
                                                                            Dane Foods Limited
a percentage of sales, and a common size balance sheet shows each items as a percentage of total

assets.

The advantage of common size statements is that they facilitate comparisons of balance sheets

and income statements overtime and across companies.

Common size and ratio analysis provide the same type information about a firm, but since they

look at the data from different prospective, they should both be used in a complete financial

statement analysis.

Financial statement analysis is useful, but there are a number of limitations which analysis must

recognize.

Ratios are often not useful for analyzing the operations of conglomerate firms that operate in

many different industries because comparative ratios are from single industries.

The use of industry averages may not provide a very challenging target for high level

performance. Inflation affects depreciation charges, inventory costs, and therefore the value of

both balance sheet items and net income. For this reason, the analysis of a firm overtime, or a

comparative analysis of firms of different ages, can be misleading. Also ratios may be distorted

by seasonal factors.

Different operating policies, such as the decision to lease rather than to buy equipment may have

an impact on financial ratios. Information on the firm’s non-capitalized lease agreements, on its

pension plan, on its recent acquisitions and divestitures, or its accounting policies, and so forth,

can be found in the notes to the financial statements and should be considered by the analyst.

Many ratios can be interpreted in different ways and whether a particular ratio is “good” or bad”

should be based upon a complete financial analysis rather than the level of single ratio at a single

point in time.

Different accounting practices can distort comparisons. However, most firms in a given industry

use similar procedures.

In the financial analysis following three techniques have been used.

1. Horizontal Analysis

2. Vertical analysis

3. Ratio Analysis

Each above have been applied on the period 1996, 1997, & 1998 of Dane Foods Limited.

CONCLUSION


Dane Foods Ltd. Debt to total assets are very poor which do creditors not prefer, it imply the loss

protection of their position. The higher debt ratio means that company must pay higher rate of

interest on its borrowing beyond some points, the company will not able to borrow at all. The

ratio of 0.53 0.82 and 0.84 in 1996, 1997 and 1998 years respectively are not satisfactory.

6.8.2.2.               DEBT EQUITY RATIO


The ratio equals the firm's debt divided by its equity, where debts can be defined as total debt or

as long-term debt. We will use long-term debt since it is so frequently employed and because it

provides added information not provided by debt ratio.

CONCLUSION

A low debt equity ratio implies that low proportion of long term financing is from debt sources,

that company did not sign great deal of financial leverage. Long term creditor prefers to see

modest debt equity ratio. Since it means greater protection and a great stake in the company’s

future for equity holders.

Dane Foods Ltd. Equity ratio is satisfactory since it less than maximum limits. Therefore,

Company can increase its long-term borrowing.

CONCLUSION

The average collection period indicates that Dane Foods Limited is not efficient in collection

matter. But longer period not necessarily bad. Faster pay policy can be reducing customers. So.

Company policy is right to some extend.

CONCLUSION

Company has an exceptionally low fixed assets turnover of 1, 1, & 2 in 1996, 1997, & 1998

implication is that the company would do better move to smaller facilities unless it anticipates a

significant increase in production and sales.

CONCLUSION

In the review period though it is increasing every year, but gross profit margin is very low. It

indicates production inefficiency and non-effective marketing strategies. They should improve

production efficiency by motivating the labor and utilizing the plant up to maximum limits. In

this way they should increase gross margin.

CHAPTER 8:                       SUGGESTION AND RECOMMENDATIONS


8.1.   WEAKNESS OF THE FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING SYSTEM


1      Internal audit department is not functioning in the company.

2      Similarly cost accounting department is also not in the company

3      Strength of accounts staff is insufficient.

4      Claims from distributors are not settled on monthly basis.

5      It has been observed Cheques are issued to suppliers without knowing the bank balance.

6      Reconciliation of accounts is not made on monthly basis.

7      Consumption report of packing & raw material is not prepared on monthly basis. So,

       favorable and unfavorable items did not adjusted in the particular months.

8      Company has no personnel department, so proper leave record of employees are not

       maintained.

9      It has been observed that damage stock actual value is not taken into accounts in every

       month.

10     A factory purchase, which is made by the commercial officer, is not systematic. Often it

       was seen the goods not entered in the Daily Receipt register and also not in the

       knowledge of storekeeper

11     Cash receipts and payments done by the account officer at factory. In this way fraud

       chances arises, because an effective internal systems says another one must check the

       work done by one.

12    Company delivery terms are Ex-Godown. When transporter’s submit the bill receipted

      copy from the distributors not submitted by him. In this way there is no assurance

      whether the goods have been reached at the distributors end in safe and sound condition.

13    Workers attendance is not systematic. It has been observed that in some cases a worker’s

      attendance is made, whereas he/she is absent from the duty. Similarly, overtime is not

      workout systematically.

14    The company does not maintain stock ledgers for spare parts and tools. It has been

      observed that costly tools and spareparts of the machinery directly charged to the repair

      & maintenance account in the particular month

15    Company produces cookies and uses process costing. There are eighteen brands of

      cookies in different packaging. Batch costing is not done in the accounts.

8.2.           SUGGESTION & RECOMMENDATIONS


1      Internal audit department plays a vital role in any organization. It is suggested that

       company should form it. This department will look after the internal control systems and

       give suggestion for their improvement.

2      For better products costing, cost & management accounting also important for any

       organization. It is suggested that company should consider on this matter.

3      Strength of accounts staff in any organization depends on the volume of the business.

       There are only six persons including Manager Accounts and one account officer at

       factory exists in the company. This insufficient staff could not perform efficiently due to

       heavy load of work. It is suggested that the post of Assistant Manager Account at Head

       Office and Accounts Assistant to be created so work can be done in a better way.

4      It is suggested that distributor’s claim to be adjusted in the same month so actual

       outstanding against each distributors shown in the books of accounts.

5      It is suggested that bank balances to be updated on every day. So they will be in a good

       position to issue the Cheques to suppliers.

6      For the true picture of accounts it is recommended that trial balance errors to be rectified

       on monthly basis. In this way actual figure stands in each account.

7      Consumption report of raw & packing materials to be made on monthly basis.

       Accordingly it is adjusted in the said month.

8      Personnel record of employees to be updated so provision for leaves payable to the

       employees can be maintained.

9     It is suggested that to know about the actual sales return damage stock from distributors

      to be updated on monthly basis so actual sales return to be known by the company in the

      current month.

10    It is suggested that purchases made by one person to be checked by another persons. In

      the company there is no crosscheck on the purchaser.

11    It is suggested those cash receipts & payments from accounts made by one person and

      checked by accounts officer. So, checks and control to be balanced. In Dane Foods cash

      receipts & payments are made by accounts officer at factory and he has no assistant.

12     It is suggested that payments not to be made to the transporter’s until unless he did not

      submit all receipted copies of the dispatch notes with the particular bill.

13    It is suggested that attendance of workers to be made systematically. A time punching

      card machine can solve this problem.

14    For better allocation of expenses it is suggested that stock ledgers of spareparts and tools

      to be maintained, so in this way their charges would be spread over a period of time not

      in the same month.

15    It is suggested that for better costing of cookies and biscuits batch costing should be

      applied rather than process costing.

8.3.                                           CONCLUSION

After making a depth review of the financial accounting systems and financial analysis of the

Balance sheet and profit and loss accounts statements I come on the final conclusion which is.

          Internal control systems of the organization are weak.

          Checks and control systems are also weak.

          Financial position is not stable because it sustained heavy losses since its formation.

          Due to heavy losses they are unable to get long term loans from investment companies

           and other financial institutions.

          They are also not in position to issue new shares for raising there capital.

          Their liquidity position not stable i.e. they are not able to pay current liabilities with

           current assets.

          On the other hand the positive sign can be seen in the company that is they reduced

           operating expenses every year, which shows company will be in the break even in near

           future.

          Similarly, with the increasing of sale every year their cost of production reduced every

           year which also shows an improvement in the company.

I hope that in near future they will stable their financial position and also improve their financial

accounting systems if they consider the suggestion and recommendation given in the report

earlier.
