Re: Buyers’ remorse _ Ferranti

Accountant: What do the 2 and 2 represent? Should you even be adding them together?

£2 of sales and £2 of expenses = £0 profit

£2 of sales and £2 of trade debtors = £2 of sales that you haven't collected the money on yet.

£2 of sales and 2 company cars = two unrelated numbers and adding them together would not give you any meaningful information.
