Profit and Loss Statement

When companies publish their financial accounts, the profit and loss statement, together with the balance sheet, provides valuable information about the company’s financial status. The profit and loss statement is sometimes called the statement of financial performance or an income statement, and measures the profit – or loss – of a business over a specified period. The statement typically outlines income over the given period, then subtracts the expenses incurred for the same period and calculates the outcome for the business.
