§ The statements should be consistent, reasonable, and accurate. Areas that will be checked for accuracy include:

· The Balance Sheets should balance for all years presented.

· Retained earnings should be properly calculated using the prior year’s balance, net income, and dividends.

· The Ending Cash Balance on the Statement of Cash Flows should agree to the Cash Balance shown on the Balance Sheet for the same year.

· Net Income on the Income Statements should match what is reported on the top of the Statement of Cash Flows (if indirect method is used).

o Other instructions:

§ The Excel workbook should be professionally formatted. Professional formatting includes:

· All numbers are formatted similarly. The use of decimals, commas for thousands, and other formatting is consistent.

· Dollar signs are included in the first and last numbers of each column.

· Subtotals and totals are preceded by a single underline. Totals are followed by a double underline.

· Line descriptions are indented/bolded in a manner that makes the spreadsheet easy to read. 

§ All common sized, horizontal analysis, and projection items should be calculated using formulas. Totals and subtotals should also be calculated using formulas.  For an example of which cells may need formulas, please see Exhibits A & B.
