I’m studying and need help with a Accounting question to help me learn.
Ownership Structures and Financial Performance
As part of your internship your mentor has asked you to produce a draft information guide for clients which looks at business structure and the financial implications of this. The guide should:
analyse critically the financial implications of different business ownership structures
analyse the corporate governance, legal and regulatory environments of different business ownership structures
compare and contrast the stakeholder interests of owners and managers in decision making
using examples evaluate the significance of Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) and other overall performance measures for the long-term sustainability of businesses
using examples examine the importance of earnings per share (EPS) as a measure of business performance
