A financial statement is a report that shows the financial activities and performance of a business.
There are four main types of financial statement:
Balance sheet: a snapshot of your business’s financial condition at a single point in time, such as 31/12/2016. Shows your business assets, liabilities and owner’s equity at that time.
Profit and loss statement: also called an income statement. Shows your business’s revenues, costs and expenses over a period of time, such as 1/1/2016 to 31/12/2016.
Cash flow statement: also called a statement of cash flows. Shows changes to the cash coming into and out of your business over a period of time. Only records cash (not all income). Shows whether you can cover short term expenses like bills and payroll.
Statement of changes in equity: also called a statement of retained earnings. Shows changes in the equity of your business for a set time period. In other words, changes in how much money your business keeps (rather than pays out to shareholders).
Combined, these statements provide a good view of the financial health of your business.
