These are critical documents that provide business owners the financial reporting data they need to run their business.

 Income Statement

The Income Statement which is often referred to as a Profit and Loss Statement or P&L Statement, is needed to see how much a business earned and spent in a specific accounting period.

The Income Statement Allow you to:

  • Track revenues and expenses so that you can determine the operating performance of your business.

  • Evaluate financial performance over previous years to provide data and evaluate the year over year performance.

  • Plan Annual Budgets and Sales Projections.

  • Determining what areas of the business are over budget or under budget.

  • Estimate income tax liability as it includes depreciation


Balance Sheet

The Balance Sheet is a portrait of the financial standing of a business at a point in time. It shows what your business owns and what it owes. A balance sheet will show a summary of a company’s assets, liabilities and owner’s equity at a specific point in time.

The Balance Sheet allows you to:

  • See all your assets (current and long-term).

  • See your Account Receivables (Money owed by customers who purchased goods or services on credit that was provided by the company.)

  • Current Liabilities – A current liability is a loan due to creditors within the next 12 months from the beginning date on the balance sheet.

  • Accounts Payable – Similar to accounts receivable, accounts payable are short-term loans, typically owed by the business from purchases made on credit from suppliers or vendors.

  • Taxes Payable – Taxes that have accrued but have not yet been paid.  One example would be payroll taxes.  The wages have been paid to the employee but payroll taxes haven’t been paid yet as they weren’t due at the time the balance sheet was created.

  • Long-term Liabilities – Similar to current liabilities, but a long-term liability is a debt that is due more than one year out from the date being reviewed on the balance sheet.

  • Retained earnings – Earnings that are reinvested in the business after the deduction of any dividends.

  • Current Portion of Long-Term Debt – Amount of principal that will be due within one year of the date of the balance sheet.

  • Owners’ Equity – Sometimes referred to as stockholder equity, net worth or paid-in capital and is the amount owners have invested in the business minus any withdrawals (not including salaries) taken since the business began.

  • Determining what areas of the business are over budget or under budget.

  • Estimate income tax liability as it includes depreciation
