Financial Statements Help Your Business



What are Financial Statements?


We all remember Cuba Gooding Jr.’s immortal line from the movie Jerry Maguire, “Show me the money!” Well, that’s what a company’s financial statements do. At their most basic, they show you where a company’s money came from, where it went, and where it is now.


There are four main financial statements.

  1. Balance Sheets - showing what a company owns and what it owes at a fixed point in time
  2. Income Statements - showing what money a company made and spent over a period of time
  3. Cash Flow Statements - showing the money coming and going to or from the outside world
  4. Statements of Shareholders’ Equity - showing changes in the interests of the company’s shareholders over time.


So, How Can Financial Statements Help my Business?


Whilst above we discuss each financial statement separately, it’s important to keep in mind that they are all related. The changes in assets and liabilities presented on the balance sheet are also reflected in the revenues and expenses presented on the income statement, which demonstrate the company’s gains or losses. Cash Flow Statements provide more information about cash assets listed on a balance sheet and are related, but not equivalent, to net income shown on the income statement. And so, these statements can multiply! No single financial statement tells the complete story, but combined they provide very powerful information for business owners and potential investors. And accurate financial information is the Business Owners best tool when it comes to investing their time in the business wisely – what needs improvement to increase profitability, viability or ensure the survival of your small to medium sized business? Financial Statements are a key element in managing your business
