What is a Business Financial Statement?

A Business Financial Statement lets your company convey its financial health in a simple, concise way. Internally, you can use a Business Financial Statement to identify trends, discover potential problems, and assess your financial performance. Externally, it can be used when you're looking to get loans from banks or other private lenders. A Business Financial Statement can help your business figure out exactly where the money is going and can really help you streamline your operations.

When to use a Business Financial Statement:

  • You want to present your business's finances to a bank or lender
  • You want to discover trends and pain points in your business's finances
  • You want a concise and easy to read overview of your business's financial outlook
