THE EFFECTIVE USE OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Print Articleprint

Financial Statements are an important management tool. When correctly prepared and properly interpret, they contribute to the understanding of the current financial condition, problems and possibilities of a company.We have prepared a sample of the following statements:

  • The Balance Sheet – referred to as The Statement of Financial Condition or The Statement of Financial Position;
  • The Income Statement – sometimes called the Statement of Operations or the Profit and Loss Statement; and
  • The Statement of Cash Flows – formerly known as the Statement of Changes in Financial Position.

These statements are essential to the efficient conduct of your business. Yet they can only help you in the decision making process if they are interpreted and explained properly. The staff of professionals at our office will assist you in the interpretations and explanations.
