A practice problem in year-end business analysis is presented to provide experience with a system of single-entry bookkeeping as part of a small business management adult education program. The problem simulates an entire business year and includes transactions involving general business revenues and expenses pertaining to most small retailing organizations. A standardized chart of accounts is included which is generally adaptable to computerization and can be applied to most double-entry accounting systems. Data forms are included to aid in compiling the necessary information for a complete business analysis. Complete, step-by-step instructions for filling in the data forms specify the exact input required for each line and column on the data forms. Documentation for the business analysis includes a line-by-line description of each item contained in the table of analysis. The data form number and specific line numbers are also included. Appendixes contain keys to the practice problem and data forms and an analysis and interpretation of the business analysis problem. (JH)
