INTRODUCTION
Although the realm of accounting and finance has often been viewed as dull ‘bean counting’, in today’s modern and competitive business environment, the finance department should be at the heart of any company, encompassing a variety of functions that go beyond its traditional financial reporting role. While it is still a priority for accountants to ensure a company’s financial statutory accounts meet legal requirements, dynamic companies such as McDonald’s have shifted the focus of their accounting and finance function to additionally include the evaluation of past performance and appraisal of future opportunities, helping to ensure the Company maximises its strategic capabilities. McDonald’s Restaurants UK Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the U.S. parent company, opened its first UK restaurant in Woolwich in 1974. There are now 1,200 restaurants operating in the UK which, despite representing only 4% of the total number of McDonald’s restaurants worldwide, contribute

7% of global profits, making the UK a very important financial market for McDonald’s shareholders. McDonald’s understands the value of an integrated accounting and finance function, extending from the restaurant floor up to the board of directors. Each individual McDonald’s restaurant is structured as an independent business, with restaurant management responsible for its financial performance, supported by the centralised Accounting & Finance department.

DEPARTMENT STRUCTURE & FUNCTION
McDonald’s Finance Department has two key areas of responsibility: financial reporting and management accounting. Although each of these functions has different priorities, working together ensures the best financial position for the company now and for the future.

HOW DOES MCDONALD’S MAKE A PROFIT?
McDonald’s has two sources of profit: • Sales made by company-owned restaurants • Rental and royalty income from franchised restaurants.

RESTAURANT SALES
McDonald’s retains all of the profit earned by company-owned restaurants. An example Profit & Loss Statement for a restaurant is shown left and highlights how food and labour constitute a restaurant’s largest costs. In addition to variable costs, which increase or decrease depending on the level of sales, McDonald’s also incurs costs that are largely fixed, for example utilities and advertising, which need to be paid for even before the restaurant makes any sales. Increasing sales and controlling costs are fundamental to ensuring the profit of each restaurant is either maintained or increased.

HISTORY OF McDONALDS.

The McDonald's History - 1954 to 1955
Raymond Albert Kroc 1902-1984, A Salesman Ray Kroc mortgaged his home and invested his entire life savings to become the exclusive distributor of a five-spindled milk shake maker called the Multimixer. Hearing about the McDonald's hamburger stand in California running eight Multimixers at a time, he packed up his car and headed West. It was 1954. He was 52 years old. Dick and Mac McDonald's Restaurant, San Bernardino, California Ray Kroc had never seen so many people served so quickly when he pulled up to take a look. Seizing the day, he pitched the idea of opening up several restaurants to the brothers Dick and Mac McDonald, convinced that he could sell eight of his Multimixers to each and every one. "Who could we get to open them for us?" Dick McDonald said. "Well," Kroc answered, "what about me?"

Where it all began, Des Plaines, Illinois

In 1985 McDonald's was added to the 30-company Dow Jones Industrial Average.

A Big Idea Called "Big Mac" "Introduced systemwide in 1968, the Big Mac was the brainchild of Jim Delligatti, one of Ray Kroc's earliest franchisees, who by the late 1960s operated a dozen stores in Pittsburgh."

ANALIYSIS ON MCDONALDS AS A SMALL SCALE CORPORATION IN THE BEGINNING.

McDonald’s is one of the leading restaurant chains in the world, touching the lives of people everyday. The long journey of the burger brand started in 1940, when two brothers, Dick and Mac McDonald opened the first McDonald’s restaurant in San Bernardino, California. Initially, they owned a hotdog

stand, but after establishing the restaurant they served around 25 items, which were mostly barbequed. It became a popular and profitable teen hangout. In 1948, the brothers closed and reopened the restaurant to sell only hamburgers, milkshakes and French fries. As per the information of the McDonald’s history, the major revenue came from hamburgers, which were sold at a nominal price of 15 cents. The restaurant gradually became famous and the McDonald brothers begin franchising their restaurant in the year 1953. The first franchise was taken by Neil Fox and under it; the second Mc Donald’s restaurant was opened in Fresno, California. It was the first to introduce the Golden Arch design. The third and fourth restaurants were opened in Saginaw, Michigan and Downey, California, respectively.

The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by siblings Dick and Mac McDonald in San Bernardino, California. Their introduction of the "Speedee Service System" in 1948 established the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant. The original mascot of McDonald's was a man with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger shaped head whose name was

"Speedee." Speedee was eventually replaced with Ronald McDonald in 1963. The present corporation dates its founding to the opening of a franchised restaurant by Ray Kroc, in Des Plaines, Illinois on April 15, 1955 , the ninth McDonald's restaurant overall. Kroc later purchased the McDonald brothers' equity in the company and led its worldwide expansion and the company became listed on the public stock markets in 1965. Kroc was also noted for aggressive business practices, compelling the McDonald's brothers to leave the fast food industry. The McDonald's brothers and Kroc feuded over control of the business, as documented in both Kroc's autobiography and in the McDonald brothers autobiography. The site of the McDonald brothers' original restaurant is now a monument. With the expansion of McDonald's into many international markets, the company has become a symbol of globalization and the spread of the American way of life. Its prominence has also made it a frequent topic of public debates about obesity, corporate ethics and consumer responsibility.

Connaught Plaza Restaurants Pvt. Ltd. in the Northern & Eastern region and another with Hard Castle Restaurants Pvt. Ltd. in the Western & Southern region McDonald's restaurants are found in 119 countries and territories around the world and serve nearly 47 million customers each day. McDonald's operates over 31,000 restaurants worldwide, employing more than 1.5 million people. The company also operates other restaurant brands, such as Piles Café, and has a minority stake in Pret a Manger. The company owned a majority stake in Chipotle Mexican Grill until completing its divestment in October 2006. Until December 2003, it also owned Donatos Pizza. On August 27, 2007, McDonald's sold Boston Market to Sun Capital Partners.

Most standalone McDonald's restaurants offer both counter service and drive-through service, with indoor and sometimes outdoor seating. Drive-Thru, Auto-Mac, Pay and Drive, or McDrive as it is known in many countries, often has separate stations for placing, paying for, and picking up orders,

though the latter two steps are frequently combined; it was first introduced in Arizona in 1975, following the lead of other fastfood chains. In some countries "McDrive" locations near highways offer no counter service or seating. In contrast, locations in high-density city neighborhoods often omit drivethrough service. There are also a few locations, located mostly in downtown districts, that offer Walk-Thru service in place of Drive-Thru. Especially themed restaurants also exist, such as the "Solid Gold McDonald's," a 1950s rock-and-roll themed restaurant. In Victoria, British Columbia, there is also a McDonald's with a 24 carat (100%) gold chandelier and similar light fixtures. Each McDonald's restaurant is operated by a franchisee, an affiliate, or the corporation itself. The corporations' revenues come from the rent, royalties and fees paid by the franchisees, as well as sales in company-operated restaurants. McDonald's revenues grew 27% over the three years ending in 2007 to $22.8 billion, and 9% growth in operating income to $3.9 billion. Full year 2008 highlights included:

developed a menu especially for India with vegetarian selections to suit Indian tastes and preferences. Keeping in line with this, McDonald's does not offer any beef or pork items in India. In the last decade it has introduced some vegetarian and nonvegetarian products with local flavours that have appealed to the Indian palate. There have been continuous efforts to enhance variety in the menu by developing more such products. McDonald's has also re-engineered its operations repeatedly in its 11 years in India to address the special requirements of a vegetarian menu. Vegetable products are 100% vegetarian, i.e.

They are prepared separately, using dedicated equipment and utensils. Only pure vegetarian oil is used as a cooking medium. Cheese and sauces are completely vegetarian and egg less.

To accommodate the current trend for high quality coffee and the popularity of coffee shops in general, McDonald's introduced McCafés. The McCafé concept is a café-style accompaniment to McDonald's restaurants. McCafé is a concept of McDonald's Australia, starting with Melbourne in 1993. Today, most McDonald's in Australia have McCafés located within the existing McDonald's restaurant. In Tasmania there are McCafés in every store, with the rest of the states quickly following suit. After upgrading to the new McCafé look and feel, some Australian stores have noticed up to a 60% increase in sales. As of the end of 2003 there were over 600 McCafés worldwide. Some locations are connected to gas stations/convenience stores, while others called McDonald's Express have limited seating and/or menu or may be located in a shopping mall. Other McDonald's are located in Wal-Mart stores. McStop is a location targeted at truckers and travelers which may have services found at truck stops. McDonald's announced on May 22, 2008 that, in the U.S. and Canada, it will be introducing cooking oil for its French fries that contain no trans fats. The company will use canola-based oil with corn and soy oils by year's end for its baked items, pies and cookies. In a bid to tap into growing consumer interest in the provenance of food, the fast-food chain recently switched its

supplier of both coffee beans and milk. UK chief executive Steve Easterbrook said: "British consumers are increasingly interested in the quality, sourcing and ethics of the food and drink they buy". McDonald's coffee is now brewed from beans taken from stocks that have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance, a conservation group. Similarly, milk supplies used for its hot drinks and milkshakes have been switched to organic sources which could account for 5% of the UK's organic milk output. The company has also expanded the McDonald's menu in recent decades to include alternative meal options, such as salads and snack wraps, in order to capitalize on growing consumer interest in health and wellness. McDonald's predominantly sells hamburgers, various types of chicken sandwiches and products, French fries, soft drinks, breakfast items, and desserts. In most markets, McDonald's offers salads and vegetarian items, wraps and other localized fare. This local deviation from the standard menu is a characteristic for which the chain is particularly known, and one which is employed either to continue by regional food taboos (such as the religious prohibition of beef consumption in India) or to make available foods with which the regional market is more familiar (such as the sale of Mc Rice in Indonesia). There have been continuous efforts to enhance variety in the menu by developing more such products.

Over the years, McDonald's has developed TV advertising campaigns that have become, like McDonald's, a part of our lives and culture. McDonald's commercials have focused not only on product, but rather on the overall McDonald's experience, portraying warmth and a real slice of every day life. This "image" or "reputation" advertising has become a trademark of the company and created many memorable television moments and themes, including:McDonald's is Your Kind of Place (1967) You Deserve a Break Today (1971) We Do it All for You (1975) Twoallbeefpattiesspecialsaucelettucecheesepicklesonionsonasesa meseedbun (1975)

ANALIYSIS ON VALUATION OF TAX OF MCDONALDS CORPORATION.

Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.com

The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce its deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred assets will not be realized. While the Company has considered future taxable income and ongoing prudent and feasible tax strategies, including the sale of appreciated assets, in assessing the need for the valuation allowance, if these estimates and assumptions change in the future, the Company may be required to adjust its valuation allowance. This could result in a charge to, or an increase in, income in the period such determination is made. In addition, the Company operates within multiple taxing jurisdictions and is subject to audit in these jurisdictions.

Deferred U.S. income taxes have not been recorded for temporary differences totalling $6.7 billion related to investments in certain foreign subsidiaries and corporate joint ventures. The temporary differences consist primarily of undistributed earnings that are considered permanently invested in operations outside the U.S. If management’s intentions change in the future, deferred taxes may need to be provided.

ANALIYSIS ON MCDONALDS IMPORT- EXPORT.

The business is managed as distinct geographic segments. Significant reportable segments include the United States (U.S.), Europe, and Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APMEA). In addition, throughout this report we present “Other Countries & Corporate” that includes operations in Canada and Latin America, as well as Corporate activities and certain investments. The U.S., Europe and APMEA segments account for 35%, 39% and 16% of

total revenues, respectively. France, Germany and the United Kingdom (U.K.), collectively, account for approximately 60% of Europe’s revenues; and Australia, China and Japan a 50%-owned affiliate accounted for under the equity method), collectively, account for over 50% of APMEA’s revenues. These six markets along with the U.S. and Canada are referred to as “major markets” throughout this report and comprise over 70% of total revenues. The Company continues to focus its management and financial resources on the McDonald’s restaurant business as we believe the opportunities for long-term growth remain signifi cant. Accordingly, during the third quarter 2007, the Company sold its investment in Boston Market. In 2006, the Company disposed of its investment in Chipotle Mexican Grill (Chipotle) via public stock offerings and a tax-free exchange for McDonald’s common stock. As a result of the disposals during 2007 and 2006, both Boston Market’s and Chipotle’s results of operations and transaction gains have been reflected as discontinued operations for all periods presented. In analyzing business trends, management considers a variety of performance and financial measures including comparable sales growth, System wide sales growth, restaurant margins and returns.

• Constant currency results exclude the effects of foreign currency translation and are calculated by translating current year results at prior year average exchange rates. Management reviews and analyzes business results in constant currencies and bases certain compensation plans on these results because we believe they better represent the underlying business trends. • Comparable sales are a key performance indicator used within the retail industry and are indicative of acceptance of the Company’s initiatives as well as local economic and consumer trends. Increases or decreases in comparable sales represent the percent change in constant currency sales from the same period in the prior year for all restaurants in operation at least thirteen months, including those temporarily closed. Some of the reasons restaurants may be temporarily closed include road construction, reimaging or remodelling, rebuilding, and natural disasters. McDonald’s reports on a calendar basis and therefore the comparability of the same month, quarter and year with the corresponding period of the prior year will be impacted by the mix of days. The number of weekdays, weekend days and timing of holidays in a given timeframe can have a positive or negative impact on comparable sales. The Company refers to this impact

as the calendar shift/trading day adjustment. This impact varies geographically due to consumer spending patterns and has the greatest impact on monthly comparable sales. Typically, the annual impact is minimal, with the exception of leap years. • System wide sales include sales at all restaurants, whether operated by the Company, by franchisees or by affiliates. While sales by franchisees and affiliates are not recorded as revenues by the Company, management believes the information is important in understanding the Company’s financial performance because it is the basis on which the Company calculates and records franchised and affiliated revenues and is indicative of the financial health of our franchisee base.
