Arlington Heights Small Business Income Statement

JSH helps ensure you have complete visibility into your finances. We will work with your Arlington heights small business to comprise an income statement. This statement is otherwise known as a profit and loss statement. It adds an itemized list of all your revenues and then subtracts an itemized list of all your expenses to come up with a profit or loss for the period.

An income statement allows you to:

  • Track revenues and expenses, allowing you to determine the operating performance of your Arlington Heights business

  • Determine what areas of your Arlington Heights business are over-budget or under-budget

  • Identify specific items that are causing unexpected expenditures: For example, unexpected phone, fax, mail, or supply expenses.

  • Track dramatic increases in product returns or cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales

  • Determine your income tax liability

Arlington Heights Small Business Balance Sheet

A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your Arlington Heights company’s financial condition at a specific moment in time.

A balance sheet helps you:

  • Quickly get a handle on the financial strength and capabilities of your Arlington Heights business

  • Identify and analyze trends, particularly in the area of receivables and payables: For example, if your receivables cycle is lengthening, you may consider implementing a policy to collect your receivables more aggressively.

  • Determine if your Arlington Heights business is in a position to expand

  • Determine if your Arlington Heights business can easily handle the normal financial ebbs and flows of revenues and expenses

  • Determine if you need to take immediate steps to bolster cash reserves

  • Determine if your Arlington Heights business has been slowing down payables to forestall an inevitable cash shortage

Balance sheets, along with income statements, are the most basic elements in providing financial reporting to potential lenders such as banks, investors, and vendors who are considering how much credit to grant your Arlington Heights small business.

Maintaining a Clean General Ledger

The general ledger acts as the core of your financial accounting records. Since every transaction flow through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books. Our firm carefully examines your ledger, allowing us to find any discrepancies, such as double billings or any unrecorded payments.

When we find mistakes, we bring your books back into balance by fixing them. This process is essential to your financial health and tax accounting strategies. By correcting these issues early on, we can help streamline tax prep and filings.
