Reading Financial Statements – September 26 6pm
Is your business making money? You have money in the bank, so it must be true. This is the number one myth regarding understanding your financial statements.
A company’s financial statements provide financial information that investors, creditors and analysts use to evaluate a company’s financial performance. Your company’s financial statements are important tools to communicate past successes and future expectations. Financial statements provide a snapshot of a business’s financial health, giving insight into its performance, operations, and cash flow. Financial statements are essential, as they provide information about a company’s revenue, expenses, profitability, and debt.
A business can run without solid financial statements, however, in the long run, these financial statements are imperative to a strong organization.
