Differences between Managerial Accounting and Financial Accounting Jenna Suarez, the controller for Arben Company, has faced the following situations in the past two weeks:
a. Ben Heald, head of production, wondered whether it would be more cost effective to buy parts partially assembled or to buy individual parts and assemble them at the Arben factory.
b. The president of Arben reminded Jenna that the stockholders’ meeting was coming up, and he needed her to prepare a PowerPoint¤ presentation showing the income statement and balance sheet information for last year.
c. Ellen Johnson, vice president of sales, has decided to expand the sales offices for next year. She sent Jenna the information on next year’s rent and depreciation information for budgeting purposes.
d. Jenna’s assistant, Mike, received the information from Ellen on depreciation and added it to depreciation expenses and accumulated depreciation on office equipment.
e. Jenna compared the budgeted spending on materials used in production with the actual spending on materials used in production. Materials spending was significantly higher than expected. She set up a meeting to discuss this outcome with Ben Heald so that he could explain it.
