Using Financial Statements to Help Manage Your Business

Business owners need to be able to analyze financial statements for a variety of reasons: to identify major changes or trends, to assess past performance and current position, , and how their firm is performing compared to others in the same industry.  We’ll cover how to:

  • determine increases or decreases in income, profits and expenses
  • calculate financial ratios and profitability ratios
  • decide whether to issue stock or secure a bank loan to increase working capital
  • equity vs debt financing
  • how to benchmark your business performance

We recommend taking the Understanding Financial Statements first, or have a solid understanding of your financial balance sheet, income statement, and cash flows.
