|Submission Instructions to Students:
Each student should draft their report on Microsoft Word and submit it via Turnitin, a link will be provided on the MANG1001 BlackBoard site under the ‘Assessments’ tab. Students who submit will receive feedback on their submission within the University’s 4 week turn around policy.
You will be able to access your individual feedback through the same Turnitin software that you use to submit your report. Feedback outlining key tends and observations from students across the module will be given by a recorded lecture which you will be able to access using the ‘recorded sessions’ tab of the MANG1001 BlackBoard site.
Your formative coursework brief relates to the ICAEW’s Without Question film which is available to view via the ‘recorded sessions’ tab on the MANG1001 BlackBoard site. Assume that Year 1 in the film is 2016 and Year 2 is 2017.
It is now 2020 and you are working for Rapston Hotels as a financial accountant. After a turbulent 2016 and 2017 the Bialto Beach project has gone ahead and the hotel is now operating. A draft set of accounts for Bialto Beach Limited have been prepared (see Appendix 1). Before accounts are finalised you are required to undertake two tasks:
1. Several transactions (see Appendix 2) have not been accounted for in the draft accounts. Please review these transactions and update the Bialto Beach accounts if appropriate, please provide a commentary justifying why / why not you have chosen to update the accounts for each transaction. You have also been asked to identify what else needs to be added to the draft accounts in order to make them ready for submission to Companies House.
2. Rapston Hotel’s are interested in purchasing another hotel chain, easyHotel Plc. You have been asked to undertake a financial statement analysis using the most recent set of accounts of easyHotel Plc to assess whether it would be a good acquisition for Rapston Hotels. A reminder that Rapston Hotel’s financial performance and position is almost exactly the same as the InterContinental Hotel Group’s, however Rapston Hotels are about 25% of the size of IHG (please download the easyHotel Plc and IHG Plc financial statements to help you undertake your analysis).
When answering both tasks you should be mindful of the events and themes within the film as well as events that have affected the tourism and hospitality sector from 2016 to date.
A reminder that any resources used when compiling the report should be referenced using the Harvard Referencing system. You will find more information about Harvard referencing on the BlackBoard site.
