The paper “ Evaluation and Interpretation of the Analysis and Prospective Liquidity, Profitability, and Financial Stability of the Baloon N Stuff Pty Ltd” is an informative example of a case study on finance & accounting. Small scale enterprises are doing very well in our country. The sector is dominated by many competitors. The sector is a free market and a lot of new investors entered this market.

The origin of the analyzed data comes from the course instructor which authorized us to prepare the report. The instructor gave this report so that we learn business formal reporting as it is stipulated in the syllabus. The scope of this report is Baloon N stuff Pty Ltd companies in the industry and it is like any other report which has a limitation that we encountered in preparing this report. This report is based on data that is prepared by a third party and we are not certain whether the analyzed data is authentic (Hinds, 2005).
The report, therefore, is based on the assumption that the data given is complete and free from errors. It is also important to disclose the fact that the data analyzed is not accompanied by the complete book of accounts that are necessary to be reflected in the report. Another limitation is the shortage of knowledge that was reduced to make this report a better one. The sources of the data for this report were given by the instructor.
We ourselves did not collect the annual financial report for the two companies. The method used to analyze the data did not fall within the part of the report since the data used in the report was already done (International Association of Fire Chiefs, National Fire Protection Association, 2009).
