Financial reports comprise three main financial statements: cash flow statement, income statement, which includes profit and loss statement, and balance sheet.

1. Balance Sheet

The balance sheet reflects the net worth of the business for a specific period. The company’s liabilities, assets as well as owner’s equity are reflected through it. Ideally, the owner’s equity and the sum of liabilities when counted should be equal to the sum of the company’s assets

2. Income Statement

The income statement reflects the expenses and income of the company for a specific period. It shows the financial activities of the past and also calculates your net loss and net income of yours.

Your income can be calculated easily, all you have to do is minus the expenses subtotal with that of the losses from gains and revenues subtotal. A positive number shows the net income whereas a negative number shows the net loss.
