The next section of the course is created to lighten the process of understanding one of the most important financial statements – Balance sheet. In order to explain what a balance sheet is, I’ll make an interesting comparison between this financial statement and a photo picture. I’ll go through the two types of balance sheet and I’ll pay attention to the structure of a balance sheet. But the focus of the course will be on 5 main balance sheet ratios which represent business’ liquidity and solvency and of course I’ll show you how to analyze them. At the end of the course, you’ll be able to use the information on a balance sheet to understand how a business is going on.
The next step will be to explain briefly the most important points related to the single-step income statement and multiple-step income statement. Another important theme will be the six crucial profitability rates – gross profit margin, operating margin, net profit margin, return on stockholders’ equity, earnings per share and price-earnings share.
In the last two videos, I’ll help you to see the difference between the direct method and the indirect method of preparing a statement of cash flows.
