CHAPTER 1: Introduction
Introduction to Subject
“Comparative financial statements are accounting reports that show more than just the current-
year activity or balances. The three major financial statements are the balance sheet, the income
(or profit and loss) statement and the cash flow statement. Comparative statements are required
in order to comply with generally accepted accounting principles. They give readers a more
complete view of the direction of the company over time.”
Financial statements are a collection of reports about an organization's financial results and
condition. They are useful for the following reasons:
• To determine the ability of a business to generate cash, and the sources and uses of that cash.
• To determine whether a business has the capability to pay back its debts.
• To track financial results on a trend line to spot any looming profitability issues.
• To derive financial ratios from the statements that can indicate the condition of the business.
• To investigate the details of certain business transactions, as outlined in the disclosures that
accompany the statements.
The standard contents of a set of financial statements are:
• Balance sheet shows the entity's assets, liabilities, and stockholders’ equity as of the report
• Income statement shows the results of the entity's operations and financial activities for the
• Statement of cash flows shows changes in the entity's cash flow during the reporting period.
• Supplementary notes. Includes explanations of various activities, additional detail on some
accounts, and other items as mandated by GAAP or IFRS.
If a business plans to issue financial statements to outside users (such as investors or lenders), the
financial statements should be formatted in accordance with one of the major accounting
frameworks, such as GAAP or IFRS. These frameworks allow for some leeway in how financial
statements can be structured, so statements issued by different firms even in the same industry
are likely to have somewhat different appearances.
If financial statements are issued strictly for internal use, there are no guidelines, other than
common usage, for how the statements are to be presented.
At the most minimal level, a business is expected to issue an income statement and balance sheet
to document its monthly results and ending financial condition. The full set of financial
statements is expected when a business is reporting the results for a full fiscal year.
Comparative financial statements are the complete set of financial statement that an entity issues,
revealing information for more than one accounting period.
The financial statements that may be included in this package are:
• The income statement (showing results for multiple periods)
• The balance sheet (showing the financial position of the entity as of more than one balance
• The statement of cash flow (showing the cash flows for more than one period)
Another variation on the comparative concept is to report information for each of the 12
preceding months on a rolling basis. Comparative financial statements are quite useful for the
• Provides a comparison of an entity's financial performance over multiple periods, so that you
can determine trends. The statements may also reveal unusual spikes in the reported information
that can indicate the presence of accounting errors.
• Provides a comparison of expenses to revenues and the proportions of various items on the
balance sheet over multiple periods. This information can be useful for cost management
• May be useful for predicting future performance, though you should rely more on operational
indicators and leading indicators than on historical performance for this type of analysis.
It is customary to issue comparative financial statements with additional columns containing the
variance between periods, as well as the percentage change between periods.
The Securities and Exchange Commission requires that a publicly held company use
comparative financial statements when reporting to the public on the Form 10-K and Form 10-Q.

CHAPTER 2: Balance Sheet
In financial accounting, a balance sheet or statement of financial position is a summary of the
financial balances of a sole proprietorship, a business partnership, a corporation or other business
organization, such as an LLC or an LLP. Assets, liabilities and ownership equity are listed as of a
specific date, such as the end of its financial year.
A balance sheet is often described as a "snapshot of a company's financial condition “Of the four
basic financial statements, the balance sheet is the only statement which applies to a single point
in time of a business' calendar year.
A standard company balance sheet has three parts: assets, liabilities and ownership equity. The
main categories of assets are usually listed first and typically in order of liquidity. Assets are
followed by the liabilities. The difference between the assets and the liabilities is known as
equity or the net assets or the net worth or capital of the company and according to the
accounting equation, net worth must equal assets minus liabilities.
A business operating entirely in cash can measure its profits by withdrawing the entire bank
balance at the end of the period, plus any cash in hand. However, many businesses are not paid
immediately; they build up inventories of goods and they acquire buildings and equipment. In
other words: businesses have assets and so they cannot, even if they want to, immediately turn
these into cash at the end of each period.
Often, these businesses owe money to suppliers and to tax authorities, and the proprietors do not
withdraw all their original capital and profits at the end of each period. In other words businesses
also have liabilities.

CHAPTER 3: Income Statement
An official quarterly or annual financial document published by a public company, showing
earnings, expenses, and net profit. Net income is determined from this financial report by
subtracting total expenses from total revenue.
The income statement and the balance sheet are the two major financial reports that every public
company publishes. The difference between this statement and the balance sheet deals with the
periods of time that each one represents. The profit and loss statement shows transactions over a
given period of time (usually quarterly or annually), whereas the balance sheet gives a snapshot
holdings on a specific date.
Profit and loss account is that part of final account is made for calculating the net profit or net
loss. In the debit side of this account, we show all indirect loss and expenses and in the credit
side of this account, we show all indirect incomes. After matching debit and credit side of profit
and loss account, we can find net profit or loss of business.
If organization is company, we transfer this balance to profit and loss appropriation account;
otherwise, we transfer this balance to capital account.

CHAPTER 4: Cash Flow Statement
“A financial statement that reflects the inflow of revenue vs. the outflow of expenses resulting
from operating, investing and financing activities during a specific time period”
Cash flow statements and projections express a business's results or plans in terms of cash in and
out of the business, without adjusting for accrued revenues and expenses.
The cash flow statement doesn't show whether the business will be profitable, but it does show
the cash position of the business at any given point in time by measuring revenue against outlays.
The cash flow statement should be prepared on a monthly basis during the first year, on a
quarterly basis for the second year, and annually for the third year.
The following 17 items are listed in the order they need to appear on your cash flow statement:
1. Cash refers to cash on hand in the business.
2. Cash sales are income from sales paid for by cash.
3. Receivables are income from the collection of money owed to the business resulting from
4. Other income is income from investments, interest on loans that have been extended, and
the liquidation of any assets.
5. Total income is the sum of total cash, cash sales, receivables and other income.
6. Material/merchandise is the raw material used in the manufacture of a product (for
manufacturing operations only), the cash outlay for merchandise inventory (for merchandisers
such as wholesalers and retailers), or the supplies used in the performance of a service.
7. Direct labor is the labor required to manufacture a product (for manufacturing operations
only) or to perform a service.
8. Overhead is all fixed and variable expenses required for the operations of the business.
9. Marketing/sales is all salaries, commissions and other direct costs associated with the
marketing and sales departments.
10. R&D is labour expenses required to support the research and development operations of
11. G&A is labor expenses required to support the general and administrative functions of
12. Taxes are all taxes, except payroll, paid to the appropriate government institutions.
13. Capital represents the capital requirements to obtain any equipment needed to generate
14. Loan payments are the total of all payments made to reduce any long-term debts.
15. Total expenses are the sum of material, direct labor, overhead expenses, marketing, sales,
R&D, G&A, taxes, capital and loan payments.
16. Cash flow is the difference between total income and total expenses. This amount is
carried over to the next period as beginning cash.
17. Cumulative cash flow is the difference between current cash flow and cash flow from the
