Statutory accounts are financial reports that limited companies and other types of businesses are required to prepare and file with Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) every year. These accounts provide a summary of a company’s financial transactions and are used to calculate the amount of tax that the company owes.
The statutory accounts typically include:
- A balance sheet, which shows a company’s assets, liabilities, and equity at a specific point in time
- A profit and loss statement, which shows a company’s revenue, expenses, and net income or loss for a specific period
- A cash flow statement, which shows the cash inflows and outflows of a company during a specific period
- Notes to the accounts, which provide additional information and explanations about the company’s financial performance and position
