Financial reporting involves the revelation of financial data to company stakeholders, this also helps people to understand the company’s performance over a specific period of time.
Normally the Financial reports are extracted Quarterly or Annually basis.

The primary purpose of Financial Reports can be segregated in 2 points:

  2. It also serves the purpose to judge the company’s strength and weaknesses and give the management and graph of company’s health.

The primary Financial reports which a company looks up to is:

  1. Balance Sheet: A balance sheet gives the entire detail of Assets and any finances made by it or also owned by it. It also gives the idea of the investment made by the company.
  2. Income Statement: Discloses the company’s earnings (same as profit loss) over the reporting period.
