Understanding Financial Statements and Financial Ratios Seminar Details

Accounting is the language of business. Accounting communicates the financial health of a business to the business owners. The financial health of the business is communicated through the preparation and understanding of the financial statements.

Many business owners do not see the importance of understanding and analyzing the financial statements. Oftentimes, they only think of Financial Statements as a necessity for annual government compliance and requirements, such as submission to BIR and SEC every year during April 15.

Without monthly preparation and proper understanding of the financial statements, business owners are not able to make business good decisions based on financial data. This lack of financial basis of business decision-making often leads to financial difficulty of the business. Lack of financial statement and financial understanding often cause the financial distress of business owners, such as losses, cash problems, inability to pay debts, overspending, bad debts, lack of investment for growth/long-term, etc.

Without financial statements, business owners do not know the answer to these basic business financial questions:

  • What are the assets of the company?
  • How much asset does it own?
  • How much liabilities does it owe?
  • How much capital was invested?
  • What is the trend in sales?
  • Where did they spend their cash?
  • What cost do they incur and where to cut cost?
  • Do they have enough cash to operate?
  • Can they declare dividend?
  • Are they getting the return of their investment?
  • Are they profiting or incurring losses?
