Financial reports provide vital information to investors, lenders, and managers. Yet, the financial statements in a financial report seem to be written in a foreign language that only accountants can understand. How to Read a Financial Report breaks through that language barrier, clears away the fog, and offers a plain-English user's guide to financial reports. This updated edition features new information on the move toward separate financial and accounting reporting standards for private companies, the emergence of websites offering financial information, pending changes in the auditor's report language and what this means to investors, and requirements for XBRL tagging in reporting to the SEC, among other topics. Makes it easy to understand what financial reports really say. Updated to include the latest information financial reporting standards and regulatory changes. Written by an author team with a combined 50-plus years of experience in financial accounting. With this new edition, investors will find everything they need to fully understand the profit, cash flow, and financial condition of any business.
