Ledger analyser - Income statement
The Income statement will list all the balances of your accounts which are created as an Income / Expense type in the Edit → Accounts menu, and will reflect your net profit or loss for a specific period. The Income statement has two main sections (financial categories), i.e. Income and Expenses. When the Income exceeds the Expenses, the report will reflect the net profit. If the Expenses exceed the Income, the report will reflect a net loss.
The Income statement is used to manage and report on your businesses' income and expenses. TurboCASH4 allows you to compare the actual figures in the Income statement with one of the following comparative figures:
•Last year's actual figures, if available. The financial performance of the actual figures may be compared to last year' actual figures for the selected periods.
•Budget figures, if entered in the Edit → Accounts menu. If the budgeted figures are entered correctly, you may compare the actual income received and expenses paid to the budgeted figures, to determine whether your income is on track, or where you are over spending or under spending.
This will list the following account types and account groups:
• Income accounts.
• Expense accounts.
