Our team has compiled a report for our Investment Advice Section of the Strategic Planning Department for management basing our analysis of ASX Listed Company of JB HI-FI Limited. As required 4 key areas where investigated to see whether JB HI- FI reporting sector have remained in compliance with the Accounting Standards by the Australian Financial Reporting Standards Boards and other Legal Regulations and Laws.

This report is collaborating on the provided accounting data of JB HI-FI's current annual financial reports. The areas we chose to investigate are of changes in equity, cash flow, intangible assets and tax effect of this company.

JB HI-FI have been established since 1974 initially operating as a single store, providing a great selection range of HI-FI technologies and recorded music, then was sold in 1983 and then reimbursed as a larger developing company opening a massive number of stores Australia-wide commencing from 1999. And they how now extended their services to provide a massive range at best prices marketing a substantial niche of customers, offering world leading brands of products including HI-FI, speakers CDs, DVDs, games, computer programs, laptops, phones, television, cameras, car sound, GPS navigation devices and so much more at lowest prices.


The statement of changes in equity must contain all information about items and activities that affected the net assets, but were not put into the profit and loss.

The statement JB HI-FI produced begins with the profit for the year, of both years that it has included in the statement. It then lists as per the standard the comprehensive income with a sub total. To fulfill the final para 106, the equity statement needed to include information about ownership. For the financial year ending 30 June 2011 JB HI-FI conducted some share buy backs, where these were included in the report to show the transactions with owners of the company, as anyone who is a shareholder is considered an owner of the company. Although it may seem as if there is a loss of control from these owners that is not the case.
