The profit and loss statement helps you make sound business decisions
A profit and loss statement is often referred to as an income statement, operating statement or a statement of financial performance. It details the revenue during a given period and the costs and expenses charged against that revenue. The profit and loss statement shows business owners, investors and stockholders whether the company made a profit or loss.
