    Annual Account

    What are annual accounts?

    The company’s annual account-called statutory accounts are prepared from the company’s financial records at the end of the financial year.
    An organization’s financial success for a full year is described in its company accounts.

    Annual accounts Includes:

    • A balance sheet.
    • Profit and loss statement.
    • Cash flow statement.
    • Annual account report.

    They are created annually for filing income tax returns. The annual financial statements of businesses that must comply with accounting requirements are available to the general public.

    The purpose of this is to distribute pertinent information about an enterprise’s overall financial development and status so that the user of the information may make informed decisions.

    Examining the annual accounts may be helpful for anyone who is thinking about submitting an application for a position with the company. Someone who makes an investment in the company is another illustration.

    The provisions of the Accounting Act and related regulations, as well as widely recognized accounting principles, must be followed in the preparation of annual accounts. General recognized accounting principles in small businesses have their own set of simplified regulations.

    Types Of Annual Accounts:

    Balance Sheet:

    The balance sheet is one of the three core financial statements that are used to evaluate a business. It is a snapshot of the company’s assets, liabilities, and shareholders equity at a given point in time. The balance sheet can be thought of as an accounting equation where assets equals liabilities plus shareholder’s equity.


    Assets are the things that a business owns or controls. They can be tangible, like buildings and equipment, or intangible, like patents and copyrights.


    Liabilities are legally binding debts or obligations to other entities. They are the opposite of assets, which are what you own. Liabilities can be classified as current or long-term. Current liabilities are those that will need to be paid within a year, while long-term liabilities are those that you will not need to be paid for more than a year.

    Profit And Loss Statement:

    The profit and loss account statement displays the company’s receipts and outlays for a specific time period.
    Because it tracks results over time rather than just in a single instant, the report of profit and loss differs from the balance sheet. The profit and loss (P&L) statement show the company’s net income and total costs for the fiscal year.
    Other Names; an income statement, statement of profit or loss, revenue statement, statement of financial performance, earnings statement, operating statement, statement of earnings.

    Process Of Calculating Gross Profit:
    • The process of calculating gross profit is straightforward.
    • The turnover amount, which represents your selling volume, is the first item you can see on the profit and loss statement.
    • You may get it by subtracting the selling cost from that number.
    • It describes the process by which the revenues, or “top line,” are converted into net income or net profit (the result after all revenues and expenses have been accounted for).

    Managers and investors can determine if a company gained money (profit) or lost money (loss) during the reporting period by looking at the income statement.

    A period of time is represented by an income statement (as does the cash flow statement). The balance sheet, on the other hand, only depicts one point in time.

    Cash Flow Statement:

    A cash flow statement, also known as a statement of cash flows, is a financial statement used in financial accounting that breaks down an examination of operating, investing, and financing activities.

    • It indicates how changes in balance sheet accounts and income affect cash and cash equivalents.
    • Clarifying the inflow and outflow of cash during the course of the fiscal year is the goal of a cash flow statement.
    • Cash flow is the total amount of money that a business receives over time and expands.
    • The cash inflow and outflow of the business are essentially the focus of the cash flow statement.

    The International Accounting Standard that addresses cash flow statements is IAS 7, or International Accounting Standard 7.
    As opposed to the profit and loss statement, it shows cash flow at the time that money is earned rather than when income is typically recorded. 

    In that regard, the two are very different.
    The statement of cash flows is a useful analytical tool for assessing a company’s short-term viability, particularly it’s capacity to pay its debts.

    Organizations Involved In Cash Flow Statements:
    • Accounting staff who must determine if the company can afford wages and other immediate costs
    • Potential investors who must determine whether the company is financially stable, potential creditors or lenders who seek a clear image of a company’s ability to pay back
    • Contractors who are considering working for or contracting with the company and want to know whether they will receive pay.
    • Business Directors, who are in charge of the company’s governance, are in charge of making sure that the company doesn’t operate while its shareholders are insolvent.

    Annual Account Report:

    The operations and financial performance of a corporation over the previous 12 months are shown in detail in an annual report.
    Shareholders and potential investors will find this material interesting. Annual account reports are a requirement of publicly traded corporations in order to fulfil their obligations to shareholders and share market authorities.
    Companies that are not publicly traded could nonetheless be required to submit annual account reports to tax authorities and regulatory bodies.

    Content In Annual Account Report:

    • Highlights of a publicly traded company’s activities.
    • Results from the previous year.
    • Future goals and objectives.
    • A letter from the CEO or president to shareholders.
    • An auditor’s report.
    • And thorough financial statements.
    • Graphs and tables are common visual presentations of financial data.

    Small businesses will have significantly simpler yearly reports. The balance sheet, profit and loss statement, and cash flow statement of the company’s financial statements which give information about:

    • Present economic situation.
    • Cash available to pay its debts when they become due.
    • Profit or loss in its most recent fiscal year.
    • Retaining earnings to expand operations.
    • The operating ratio which compares operational costs to revenue.
