Contents of a company’s Financial Statement
The financial statement of a company is a document that contains information about the company’s activities and financial performance in a particular year and a copy of this statement is required by a company to file its Annual Returns. Note that a company is mandated by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) to file its Annual Returns within the first 18 months of its incorporation and subsequently every year, A standard Financial Statement should contain the following information;
- The chairman’s speech
- Director’s report
- Auditor’s report
- Balance sheet
- Profit and Loss account
- Cash flow statement
- Accounts of subsidiary (if any)
- Corporate governance
- Accounting policies
Note that a company’s failure to file its Annual Returns in a year attracts penalty from the Corporate Affairs Commission (C.A.C) and continuous default may result in the Company being delisted from the register of members by the C.A.C
