Assessing your Company's Financial Health.

Posted on October 1, 2013 at 3:20 AM
   Recently, A Client of ours requested to know the health of his company and was of the opinion that the total income, that his company made was enough to prove that his company was healthy. We had to explain to him, that the company's total income was not enough to show the financial health of his company. We realize that a lot of business owners always make this wrong assumption. We hope that by the time, you finish reading this article, you will have a better understanding of how to assess your business/organization's financial health position.
   It is important to note that, to assess your company's financial health, you will need more information than your Gross Income, to see how well your business/organization is doing. There are three important financial information, that you will need and these will also help you in making your Business decisions. They are:
  • Balance Sheet-A Balance Sheet provides an instant picture of an organization's financial situation at a particular point in time. It shows an organization's assets(what it owns),liabilities(what it owes) and net worth(the difference between the two).It also provides a breakdown of current assets and fixed assets, as well as current liabilities and fixed liabilities. The Balance sheet also shows how much equity(ownership interest),that you have in the Business.
  • Profit & Loss Statement - A Profit & Loss Statement shows all actual income and expenses incurred for a particular period of time, such as a month, quarter or year. This statement reports the most important numbers of the organization, like the Company's Gross Profit, total expenses and Net Income, through which Business owners can determine, if their business is making a profit or loss.
  • Cash Flow Statement - This Statement shows how much actual cash enters and leaves your company's accounts for a time period,including all operating activities, investing activities and financing activities. Incoming Cash appears in different categories, such as Sales, Cash from Vendors, interest received, Owner contributions, any borrowed money or miscellaneous sources. The categories for outgoing cash are Payroll, inventory, operating expenses, equipments, capital expenditures, debts and distributions to owners.
    It is important to note that by combining these three statements, you will be able to assess the financial health of your company at any given time. Please note that you NEED to have a GOOD BOOKKEEPING SYSTEM in place, because this is the only way that your statements can be accurate, and with this, you will be able to make accurate business decisions.
