This is a statement of the assets, liabilities, and capital of your business at a particular point in time, detailing the balance of income and expenditure over the preceding period. This details the value of your fixed assets (land, property, vehicles and equipment etc), how much you have in the bank, how much your customers owe you and the value of your stock in hand. It also details how much you owe out to suppliers, HM Revenue & Customs and any loans, ending with the profit, capital and value to date of your business.
This report details which customers still owe you money and which suppliers you still owe money to.
This report is one of the most valuable, it sets out the information on your profit and loss report, but it displays the informatiion Month by month. This enables you to, at a glance, compare each month side by side throughout your financial year, easily highlighting seasonal variations and spikes in costs.
