All companies must conform regularly to a series of formal statements regarding their financial position and structure. While for large organization this is part of a routinely recognized bureaucracy, for the small to medium-sized company it can in fact become a major drain on already scarce resources of time and manpower, particularly given that in many instances there may be uncertainty as to precisely what form to present this information in, or when to present it. Indeed, this process is recognized as a major determent to those who would otherwise start up businesses of their own. "Company Reporting" attempts to resolve these problems, presenting relevant information in a clear and accessible form. The book describes the legal and financial environments affecting the preparation and contents of company reports, including those changes derived from the EC, or comprehensive coverage includes: statutory framework and controls, accounting statements, income statements, directors' reports, audit reports and ratios and comparative data.
