The Importance of Financial Statements
Your financial statements allow you to see exactly how much money is coming in to and going out of your business at any given point. Using this information allows you to:
- Spot trends in business increase and decreases
- Determine what services or goods are most beneficial to your profits versus which ones aren’t.
- Show investors and lenders your financial state to get loans and grow your business.
- Create more accurate budgets
- Keep accurate tax return records. Tax return numbers need to be substantiated
Preparing Monthly Statements
There are several monthly reports that allow you to judge your business performance at any given time, including:
- Current ratio – provides an accurate representation of how an individual or business is performing at that moment. A high current ratio value is a positive sign that a business can effectively pay back its debt.
- Debt to equity ratio – a comparison of debt or liabilities versus assets. The formula to determine this ratio calculates liabilities divided by assets minus those liabilities. A low debt to equity ratio can show a lower risk of loan default or investment by stakeholders.
- Receivables outstanding – means that a product was sold or services rendered without payment at that time. Until an account is paid in full, it is considered outstanding debt. Once the debt is settled the account no longer outstanding.
- Profit margin – A calculation that can help show growth of a business, and provides a snapshot of how a company compares with competitors. Calculate your profit margin by subtracting your debts from your assets and divide by total revenue. The larger the percentage, the greater the overall profit of the business.
