One of the basic financial statement, an equity statement details the finer financial points of a business including:

The cash flow statement reports the cash generated and used during a specified period of time and determines how cash is flowing in and out of the business. This statement is a crucial tool for both business owners and their potential investors since it involves disclosing cash flow involving operating, investing, and financing activities. Also included within the cash flow statement are factors of depreciation, gains or losses on assets, and any changes in current assets or liabilities.
