Lembre-se que a maioria destas palavras
(mostradas em amarelo) esta empregada aqui em sentido figurado.

·When things go up you can talk about an advance , a climb , a hike, an increase or a rise

 

· Similarly , you can say that stock prices have advanced , climbed , increased , risen or gaine ground

 

· If they are going up slightly after a rough period you could  say that prices are picking up , turning up , edging up ,edging higher , edging ahead , firming , recovering or strengthening
In other words there has been a pick-up ,a turn-up , upswing or a recovery

 

· If they go up quickly and substantially , you might say they have jumped , roared ahead , roared up ,  shot ahead , shot up ,  soared , or surged .

 

· If they can't go any further they are peaking . So if you describe the top price of your company shares last year , you might say that share prices peaked at 75 dollars a unit , 20 dollars up from their top market price the previous year.

 

· When prices or wages go down , you can describe this movement as a decline , drop , fall , retreat or slide

 

· Again you could say for example , that interest rates are declining , dropping , falling , retreating , sliding , slipping or rather more colorfully , heading south or losing ground

 

· If the fall is only slight  you might talk about a downswing , downturn , turndown , or slowdown
This means that prices are dipping , drifting ( lower) edging down

 

· If the fall is dramatic you can say that prices have dived ,nose-dived , plummeted , plunged or tumbled.
 
Perhaps you are expecting a crash , collapse or slump

Botton Line

 

  The company assets are intangible (good will) , current (cash) , fixed (land or furniture ).

Assets which lose their value as time passes can be depreciated or amortized by a certain sum every year . The company's assets are offset by its liabilities  - all the expenses it has incurred over the financial year . The difference between the two is your taxable profit .

If you're not happy with the final result , the bottom line - that is , if you think your taxable profit is too high -  you may ask your accountant , or tax consultant  to massage the profits a little and do some creative accounting - or even to cook the books !
