Our Metrics for Success
When Might You Need Financial Reporting?
Even without any special events or changes, businesses often need to prepare regular financial statements (income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement, etc.) for internal decision-making, monitoring financial health, and setting future strategies.
Seeking External Financing
Publicly traded companies are mandated by regulatory bodies (like the SEC in the U.S.) to provide periodic financial statements to protect investors and ensure market transparency. Similarly, private companies may have local or state regulatory reporting requirements, especially for tax purposes.
Stakeholders, including shareholders, creditors, suppliers, and even employees, often seek financial reports to gain confidence in the company’s stability and future prospects.
Budgeting and Forecasting
While this may not be “reporting” in the traditional sense, financial reports from previous periods serve as a foundation for projecting future revenues, expenses, and capital needs.
Some businesses, due to their size, investor requirements, or other regulations, undergo periodic external audits. Accurate financial reports are the starting point for these audits.
Contracts, like bond covenants or lease agreements, may require businesses to maintain certain financial ratios or benchmarks, necessitating regular financial reporting to monitor compliance.
Litigation or Legal Matters
In the event of legal disputes or potential litigation, having accurate and up-to-date financial reports can be essential to support a company’s position or to assess any potential financial impacts.
