Financial statements are vital for business as they

  • will allow a business owner to focus on solving the particular issues that their business faces.
  • help truly understand the issues impacting your organisation.

What business owners should expect from their financial statements.

View Historical Data

Your “core” financial statements should create a snapshot of what has happened over the last period (month, quarter, year)

Identify Issues

Your periodic financial reports give visibility, and the information necessary, to solve potential problems before they occur.

Build Transparency

Financial reporting can allow your company to foster a culture of transparency, where employees receive more information about their company, fostering a greater sense of ownership.

Assess Progress

Because your reports are consistent, you can compare them between periods to assess progress. You can also compare results against your goals, i.e., “actual vs. Budget.”

Allow Interactive Reporting

Speak to your financial manager about the availability of interactive reporting. This allows you to model various solutions or growth options, using “what if” scenarios, to assist in strategic decision making.
