The Accounting Standard Board (ASB), working jointly with the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), has published recommendations on the standard setting process and the effects of accounting standards on all user groups.


Board of directors: The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has issued guidance for the board of directors assisting them to lead their companies in the most efficient manner. The guidance addresses issues such as:

  • Roles of chairman, directors and the company secretary;
  • Decision making policies and processes;
  • Board composition and succession planning; and
  • Evaluating the performance of the board of directors.


The board of Johnson Matthey is actively engaged in ongoing succession planning in order to ensure plans are in place and the board is also following the principle of committee evaluation process announced by FRC in October 2011.


Stockholders and Creditors: Financial Reporting Standards provide financial information to stockholders and creditors about the reporting entity which helps them in making decisions about providing resources to the entity and their expectations about returns depend on their assessment of future net cash inflows to the entity.


Johnson Matthey openly engages with its stakeholders and reports formally to them. The Chairman takes overall responsibility that the views of stakeholders are communicated to the board.


KPMG Audit Plc: The Ethical Standards of the Auditing Practices Board (APB) constituted by FRC address both personal and firm independence requirements and helps KPMG Audit Plc to have clear policies and processes in place and apply them consistently. It is responsible for monitoring the integrity of the group’s reported financial information and reviewing financial reporting issues and judgments which they contain.

Resolutions are to be proposed at the 2012 Annual General Meeting for the reappointment of KPMG Audit Plc as auditor of Johnson Matthey (Deloitte Accounting Standard Brief).




The explanatory notes to Johnson’s financial statements covers subjects like the segmental information, major impairment and restructuring charges, earnings per ordinary share, share-based payments, post-employment benefits, provisions and contingent liabilities, deferred taxation, inventories etc.


The notes to financial statements provide adequate disclosure of important facts about the company that would not be obvious simply by reviewing the financial statements. They help in explaining specific items in the financial statements and also provide a more comprehensive assessment of company’s financial condition. The notes clarify individual statement line-items and are necessary in the presentation of financial statements (Michael C. Dennis, 2009).       




Johnson matthey’s revenue is affected by rising commodity costs, as a result of which the profit margins for its precious metals division is lowered, and increased emissions trading regulation, which creates business for its environmental technologies division. The price of energy and commodity raw materials (such as platinum group metals, steel, etc.) has risen in the past few years. For example, the cost of European hot-rolled steel coil rose 25% in the first quarter of 2010 because of increased demand and less production. Any disruption in the supply and price of commodities can decrease Johnson matthey’s profitability as it relies on commodity supplies for its precious metal products and it is also not able to immediately pass on higher costs to its customers.


From the annual report we can see that the revenue of the precious metals division has increased by only 19% in 2011-12 as compared to an increase of 33% in 2010-11 and its sales have increased only 8%  as compared to 19% in 2010-11.The global demand for platinum has increased by only 2% in 2011 as compared to an increase of 16% in 2010.Even the sales in the division’s Services businesses grew only by 10% in 2011 as compared to 20% in 2010 (Wiki analysis of Johnson Matthey Plc).




Assuming that during 2011-12 Johnson’s purchase costs are steadily increasing, then FIFO (First-In, First-Out) method of inventory valuation results in the highest reported profit because inventory that might be several years old is used to value the cost of goods sold.


When prices are increasing, then LIFO (Last-In, First-Out) method of inventory valuation results in lowest taxable income.

“Lower of cost or market” valuation method is closest to current replacement cost. When the value of inventory is lower than the cost, the inventory is written down to its market value. Market is defined as replacement cost or net realizable value (Inventory Valuation for Investors: FIFO and LIFO, 2010).




The difference between FIFO and LIFO is the way that the inventory that gets sold is priced. When FIFO method is used, the income statement shows a higher income because the Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) is valued at a lower amount. When LIFO method is used, the income statement shows a lower income because the COGS are valued at a higher amount.

The retained earnings statement will show a higher retained earnings value if FIFO method is used (Inventory Valuation for Investors: FIFO and LIFO, 2010).




The same method of inventory valuation shall be used for all inventories having a similar nature and use to the entity. For inventories with a different nature or use, using different methods of inventory valuation may be justified. For example, inventories used in one business segment may be of a different use to the entity as compared to the same type of inventories used in another business segment. Merely the location of inventories in different geographical regions is not sufficient to justify the use of different methods of inventory valuation. Thus the concurrent use of two inventory methods does not indicate that Johnson is violating the accounting principle of consistency (Mscuttle, 2008) & (Accounting Standard Board, May 2002).




The Cash receipts are a result of cash sales made by an organization which includes collections from customers for products sold to them or for services provided, the interests received, rents, and dividends, from investments by the owners, loans from bank and the proceeds from the sale of non-current assets.


The following are the principles to be adopted by Johnson in establishing strong internal control over the cash receipts:


  • The Establishment of responsibility - Only personnel (cashiers) who are designated shall be authorized to handle cash receipts.


  • Segregation of duties – The duties shall be divided properly. Different individuals should be responsible to receive cash, to record cash receipts, and hold the cash.


  • Procedure for documentation – Usage of remittance advice (mail receipts), cash register tapes, and deposit slips should be done properly.


  • Physical, mechanical, and electronic controls – The cash should be stored in safes and bank vaults. Limitation on access to storage areas and use of cash registers.


  • Independent internal verification - Supervisors are responsible to count cash receipts daily; the treasurer is responsible for comparing the total receipts to bank deposits daily.


  • Other controls - The Bond personnel who handle cash who require vacation, shall deposit all cash in bank daily.


(Internal Control and cash)




The adjusting entry to create or increase the allowance for doubtful accounts involves the recognition of an expense. In multiple-step income statement, it is to be presented as a selling expense.


In cash flow statement, there will be no effect as no cash flows are involved.




The adjusting entry to increase the balance in the marketable securities account to a higher value affects only the balance sheet. In multiple-step statement, there will be no effect as it appears in the balance sheet and not in the income statement. In cash flow statement also there will be no effect as no cash flows are involved.




The accounts receivable collection period measures the average number of days that accounts receivable are outstanding. It measures the average number of days between the sending of invoices to the customers and collecting payments from them.


The accounts receivable of Johnson on average was 22.52 days. This implied that the revenues were not being collected in an efficient manner (Financial Statements for Johnson Matthey Plc, JMAT)




As per the matching principle the expenses should be recognized in the same accounting period as are the revenues generated, i.e. to match the revenues and expenses. The matching principle is the reason for using accrual basis for accounting (Adjustments for Financial Reporting).




The company should continue to provide depreciation. Instead the asset shall be revalued to bring it at par with the current market value. Where the original cost of an asset undergoes a change due to revaluation, the depreciation on the revised unamortized depreciable amount is provided prospectively over the residual useful life of an asset.




If carrying amount of an asset is more than its recoverable amount then the difference is called impairment loss. Carrying amount is the written down value of the asset i.e. book value of the asset. Recoverable amount is the higher of its fair value less costs to sell and its value in use.

During the year ended 31st March 2011 Johnson closed its Haverton manufacturing site Billingham, UK. This gave rise to a pre tax impairment. The impairment loss will be transferred to Profit & Loss account.




Goodwill is the amount paid to acquire a company which is in excess of its net assets over its fair market value. The excess payment is due to the value of company's reputation, its location, the list of customer of the company, the management team, or other intangible factors. Goodwill may be recorded only after the occurrence of purchase of a company because such type of transaction provides an objective measure of goodwill as recognized by the purchaser.



If Johnson’s item is held for sale in the regular course of business then it will be prevented from being included in the classification of plant and equipment as IAS 16 does not apply to assets as held for sale (Summary of IAS 16-Revenue based Depreciation and amortization).




The depreciation methods used in Johnson’s annual report are not determined by current income tax laws. It is the responsibility of the entity to select the method that most closely reflects the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits embodied in the asset and to disclose the method they choose and use it consistently for the life of the assets unless there is a change in the expected pattern of consumption of those future economic benefits.


If two assets have different pattern of consumption then they should be depreciated using different methods. Johnson does not violate the consistency principle by using different depreciation methods for its assets. The consistency principle states that once an accounting principle or method is adopted, then it should be consistently followed in future accounting periods.


The estimated depreciation rate of freehold building is 10% and of plant and equipment is 15%.


The company itself determines the useful lives over which specific assets are to be depreciated. (Guide to valuation and depreciation under IAS).
