  10. 10. why is a p&l different from a cash flow statement? P&L The P&L is a company’s financial statement that indicates how the revenue (money received from the sale of products and services before expenses are taken out, also known as the &quot;top line&quot;) is transformed into the net income (the result after all revenues and expenses have been accounted for, also known as the &quot;bottom line&quot;). Cash Flow The cash flow statement is concerned with the flow of cash in and cash out of the business. The statement captures both the current operating results and the accompanying changes in the Balance Sheet. As an analytical tool, the statement of cash flows is useful in determining the short-term viability of a company, particularly its ability to pay bills.
