2.1 Analyze the costs of different sources of finance
Tangible Cost
A quantifiable cost related to an identifiable source or asset. Tangible costs represent expenses arising
from such things as purchasing materials, paying employees or renting equipment.
Example: Customers who bought a faulty phone at a mobile phone shop and this error due to the mobile
phone shop. Mobile phone shop must compensate the cost value of the phone to the clients, this is
considered tangible costs. On the other hand the client unhappy and complained about the quality of the
mobile phone shop for friends or anyone else, the phone shop's revenue will be affected and this also
considered intangible costs.
Opportunities Cost
Opportunity cost is a useful concept used in the theory of choice. It is applied very frequently and widely
in economic life. Opportunity cost based on the facility's scarce resources should compel us to make


choices. Choice i.e. perform trade-off, i.e. to receive a benefit that would compel us to Exchange or
overlook a certain cost to it. As such, the opportunity cost of a choice is the value of the best overlooked
when making the choice (and is losing benefits when choosing this approach that does not choose other;
Selected other projects might be better option selected). Due to the rules of scarcity should always exist
the trade-off when making the choice. Or in other words, the opportunity cost always exists.
Example: You quit a job at a software company with a salary of $ 5,000 per month to go to the sale of
clothing, one month you only got $ 3,000 profit. 5000USD you bypass is considered the opportunity cost.
Tax Shield
Tax shield (tax shield) is a term that economists talk about reducing corporate income taxes payable to the
State by reducing taxable income. In other words, before the tax shield, corporate income taxes are
collected from enterprises is more than when businesses have tax shield. Tax shield reduces the payment
of taxes to the State and increases the assets to shareholders and creditors.
Example: a business investing in a project with the total amount of capital is 400 million VND. Income
before tax and interest of the loan is 100 million VND. With the enterprise income tax is 28%, we see:
+ Business case does not borrow money to invest that use only the internal capital resources: taxable
income is 100 million VND, corporate income tax payable is 28 million VND.
+ Business loan case 400 million VND to invest, with the loan interest rate is 10% of loan interest rates:
by 40 million VND, so it should the taxable income is 60 million VND. Corporate income tax payable
now only 16.8 million VND. Tax shield in this case has a value: 400 million VND x 10% x 28% = 11.2
million VND

2.2 Assess the information needs of different decision makers
Financial information

Balance sheet: Is a financial report including the company's current assets, liabilities, owner's
equity company in a specific moment.
The balance sheet adheres to the following formula:
Assets = Liabilities + Shareholders' Equity


Income statement: Is report business results are important because they demonstrate the
profitability of a company in period certain accounting. Accounting period in the report was
selected by the enterprise and can be changed. The main point in the financial statements is that it
represents the revenue, expenses, profits and losses, but it does not reflect the amount that
companies receive or the amount that companies spend.

Cash flow: Cash flow is a term that refers to the amount that a firm received or paid during a
defined period of time, or in a certain project. Cash flow statements is statistics of the cash flow of
the business, is one of the three most important financial statements of enterprises. This report is
used to determine the level of sustainability in the short term of the business. If cash increases
(positive operating cash flow) then it will increase liquidity for the company, ready to meet the
demand for cash.

Non-financial information

Press release: A press release is a short text, it is usually just one page, aimed at calling for
awareness and attention to an event or an issue worth your company's news. Press releases are sent
to all types of press information: print, radio, and television. If this press notice is the media for is
actually have news value, it can bring to a significant awareness of the public about events and
issues of your company.

Vision and Mission
Mission often focus on the present. Handle the current problem, clearly defined customer, the
implementation process, and activities necessary for the company to deploy.
Vision is often focused on the future. It describes the next direction of the company to catch up and
meet the market and sectors are trading. In addition, proper vision can make company leading the
trend and strong growth.
For example:
Tiki’s mission and vision as follows:


Vision: "Become an e-commerce company not only goods but also the services. Change the way
everyone's shopping in the future".


Mission: "Meet the needs of online shopping in Vietnam. Facilitate quick, convenient, secure
online shopping".


The users of financial information.
Internal: Managements, Employees, Owners. Used to analyze and improve the company's
business situation, analyze the feasibility and profitability of investment houses, giving the future direction
for the company.
External: Creditors, Tax Authority, Investors. Feasibility analysis for investment and corporate,
determine the level of reliability of the company based on the tax.

2.3 Evaluate appropriate sources of finance for a business project
I have a small project is to set up a software technology company with products is an English learning
application using AI to help people learn more easily. After many of our calculation then the amount we
have to invest in order to implement the project is about 500 million VND.
However, due to our initial capital only 320 million VND so we don't to sufficient funding. The
calculations showed that the amount of money we need to add is about 180 million VND. We decided to
bank loans to carry out this project. Through analysis we found was that the Bank really bring some
benefits for my project.
Specifically, I will have to be large and fast capital initially. Besides, the loan is due, we will not lose the
right to decide in its projects as work thanks to funding from investors. I have the right to property and the
freedom to decide to grow and develop your business. The Bank loans are also beneficial as it helps us
reduce the tax money down because the interest is tax deductible. This is also a benefit of loans instead of
taking the entire funding of itself.

To the business activities of a business and then develop fluency, leaders need to know and understand the
financial resources that existing businesses as well as the financial resources from outside to make the
decisions. The ability of financial analysis, cost and other resource factors are the key factors in success.
