How to Read a Financial Statement
Feb 22, 2021
“How to Read and Analyze a Financial Statement” is the topic of my next Take A Business Break program at the East Brunswick Public Library on this Thursday Feb. 25 at Noon. There is no charge and all attendees will receive a free copy of my MBA course handout with the same topic. You can buy it at Amazon.com if you don’t attend the program.
I will discuss briefly the seven elements of a financial statement and the statement of income and balance sheet in some easy to understand detail. Here is an early peak:
Seven Elements of a Financial Statement
- Report of independent accounting firm. Auditor’s opinion.
- Statement of income. Revenues and expenses during the period; the difference is the profit or loss.
- Balance sheet. What is owned and owed and difference is the net worth on a specific date.
- Statement of cash flows. All sources of cash in and out during the period.
- Comprehensive income. Items not shown on other statements that affect the net worth.
- Changes in owners’ equity. Changes in net worth during period.
- Notes to financial statements. Explanations of certain items reported on statements.
I put together a PowerPoint® presentation that will make the hour rush by. Anyone that wants to better understand financial statements should take this program. It is on Zoom and free.
