By annual financial statements, industry experts generally mean financial statements for a company's financial year.
In detail, these are the reports submitted by companies to disclose their economic and financial situation, as well as changes that have taken place within a specified period.
The statements fulfil different functions. They contain important and useful information for the executive board of a company, as well as for managers, supervisory bodies and other parties, such as stakeholders, unitholders or creditors.
These reports are prepared according to accounting principles and specific accounting standards. They normally have to be published in compliance with specific requirements. They contain a balance sheet for the company as of the date of the financial year-end, an overview of the results attributable to this period, the development of these assets and the development of the financial position of the company within this period.
In addition, annual financial statements are very helpful for users. Why? They contain details that together with other information can help identify measures to be put into effect, taking into consideration the new movements, strategies, and trends of the market in which the company operates.
