Financial Statements

financial statement


An income statement or profit and loss statement adds an itemized list of all your revenues/income and subtracts an itemized list of all your expenses to come up with a profit or loss for the period.

  • Track revenues and expenses so that you can determine the operating performance of your business.
  • Determine what areas of your business is over-budget or under-budget.
  • Identify specific items that are causing unexpected expenditures. Like phone, fax, mail, or supply expenses.
  • Track dramatic increases in product returns or cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales.
  • Determine your income tax liability.


A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your business’ financial condition at a specific moment in time.
A balance sheet helps you…

  • Quickly get a handle on the financial strength and capabilities of your business.
  • Identify and analyze trends, particularly in the area of receivables and payables. For example, if your receivables cycle is lengthening, maybe you can collect your receivables more aggressively.
  • Determine if your business is in a position to expand.
  • Determine if you need to take immediate steps to bolster cash reserves.
  • Determine if your business has been slowing down payables to forestall an inevitable cash shortage.
