Frequently Asked Questions

What is financial reporting?

Financial reporting refers to the use of financial statements (income statement, balance sheet and statement of cash flows) to disclose financial data that is reflective of an organization’s financial health for a particular period of time. This information is used by management to make decisions for the company, as well as provide different stakeholders (internal and external) with information about the profitability and stability of the organization. 

What are the types of financial reporting?

There are three main financial statements- the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement. The balance sheet is a summary of all business assets and liabilities and shows what a company owns and what it owes. The income statement is a summary of all business income and expenses and reflects how much money a company has made or spent over a period of time. And finally, the cash flow statement reflects incoming and outgoing cash flows of an organization. 

What is the difference between financial accounting and financial reporting?

Financial accounting refers to keeping tabs on an organization’s financial transactions. These transactions are presented in financial statements such as the balance sheet or income statement. Financial reporting is broader than just the financial statements. It also includes reports that are meant to be distributed outside of the organization, such as quarterly and annual reports, and reports for governmental agencies including the SEC.

How is financial reporting done?

Financial reporting must be conducted in accordance with generally accepted accounting guidelines (GAAP) in the US, while in most international markets they must be in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

What are financial reporting requirements?

As per GAAP, companies must provide reports on their cash flows, profit-making operations, and overall financial conditions. GAAP requires submitting the three major financial statements- the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement.
