Management Accounts

​The profit and loss (P&L) account summarises a business's trading transactions - income, sales and expenditure - and the resulting profit or loss for a given period. The Balance Sheet gives an overview of the assets and liabilities of the Company at a given point in time.

It is important that all businesses, no matter how small or large understand where they are at any point in time especially in relation to cash flow.

As the markets most people operate in now consist of a number of sales streams, retail sales, credit accounts, internet, foreign etc. it is more important than ever to ensure that you know where your business is as at any point in time. For companies struggling and possibly likely to fail this is now a critical process to avoid the possibility of "fraudulent trading".
