Report Explanations

Client reports

Accounts receivable ageing detail: unpaid sales invoices

Accounts payable ageing detail: unpaid bills from suppliers

Profit & loss: This shows the business income, expenses, and net income (profit or loss). This is good for seeing how the business is doing and estimating the corporation tax due.

Balance sheet: This gives you a breakdown of what the business owns (assets), what the business owes (liabilities) and what the business can pay out to its shareholders (capital & reserves). In order to work out how much the business can legally pay out as a dividend, you can usually take the capital/reserves figure (i.e. the last figure at the bottom of the report) and take away the estimated corporation tax due if it hasn’t been accounted for yet.

Accountant reports

Trial balance: This is a combination of both the profit & loss and balance sheet reports

Profit & loss detail: breakdown of the profit & loss items into the transactions that make up the balances
