Financial Management Reporting will tremendously enhance your skill to plan finances and apply your attention to the most profitable points of your business.
Let's go through these seven key financial reports in brief.
Note that these seven points are not listed in any order of preference or importance as each forms a piece of the puzzle whose overall information IS the solution in itself to all decisions financial in a business venture.
1. Unpaid Bills, Accounts Payable Aging
These key financial reports tell you who you owe and when each payment is due as well as showing you payments that are overdue.
Balancing your income with outgo is always a challenge, but with accurate information, you can make informed decisions and optimize your financial flows to your advantage.
Seeing it in writing along with the other key reports will make it much easier to do your financial planning and spend your dollars where they count most.
2. Unpaid Invoices, Accounts Receivable Aging
This key report gives up-to-date data on who owes you money and when you can expect to get it into your bank account.
It specifies on the 30-60-90-day division when you can expect money and how much.
It also states all customers whose payments are overdue and informs you the sums and how long these have been overdue.
Reporting the various angles of accounts receivable in clear and concise form to you will help you to obtain a working understanding of the situation within seconds.
You will know things are under control and receive precise information on which to base decisions about your finances and the general running of your company.
These reports can be issued weekly or monthly as needed by the company. Weekly is usually best.
It is vital to be kept informed of your near-future income in this way as that will be the foundation of your financial planning.
Your Unpaid Invoices Key Report provides the information needed to collect overdue invoices and keep current ones
Your Accounts Receivable Aging Key Report provides you with a snapshot of how well your money is being collected.
It shows you which invoices are current (owed less than 30 days), 60 days or 90 days overdue.
Over time it reveals the good payers, those who regularly remain in the 30-day category.
Equally, it will uncover the bad payers, those who fall into the over-60-day category consistently.
3. Profit & Loss (Income Statement)
This key financial report summarizes how much money you made (sales), where you made it, how much it took to make it (expenses) and what you got left over (profit) from it... or not (loss).
In other words, the Profit & Loss key report gives you detailed information on your sales, expenses and the resulting profits or losses.
It lists your assets (what you own) against your liabilities (what you owe), giving a fair picture of your equity (what's left over or the difference between the two).
Excellent information if received frequently as it allows you to utilize any windows of opportunity (something suddenly selling better or at a higher profit) and equally instantly countermand any cut in profits or sales.
Essentially, problems are small when they're born, so the quicker any problem is found, the easier (and cheaper) it is to correct it.
Equally, any uptrend is a window of opportunity which has a limited period of utilization... and with this key report you can find it immediately and strengthen that which produced more sales and profits.
4. Balance Sheet
This reports how much you own and owe. It lists your assets against your liabilities, giving a fair picture of your equity.
It also shows the trend and you'll be able to follow the growth of your equity.
Knowledge is power in financial planning.
financial position will influence your finance and planning,
ensuring decisions made work for your benefit without overextending
your assets or capital.
5. Cash Flow Projection Report
This Key Report keeps you updated
on what you owe and can expect to collect in the near future.
This outgo is then matched against the monies you can expect to come to your bank account in the corresponding time periods.
Cash Flow Projection Report provides you with absolutely essential data for financial planning.
It is also extremely useful when planning any form of investment to your company.
6. Sales Reports
This key report gives you detailed information on your sales, explaining the "what, who and how" of your sales flows.
Who is buying the most?
It's a well known principle of business that only 20% of your customers contribute to 80% of your bottom line but which customers are they?
Which items or services are selling best... and which worst?
Which items and/or customers bring the best profits?
Who are the good customers, who average... and which ones are the worst customers?
Essential key information on which your sales, profits, cashflow and financial planning can be improved continuously.
7. Job Cost Report
The key to financial control and profitability lies in knowing not only what was earned but what was spent on earning the income you made.
The Job Cost Key Report itemizes how much was spent on each job, or the costs of selling each category of product.
It gives you the details what the money was spent on and explains all the details of the assignment.
If the job is an actual larger project, then it would come under the realm of Project Accounting, which involves the assigning & tracking of costs (labor and materials) and revenues(job selling price / payments received) to a particular job such as building a house or a project like building an apartment complex.
