A financial statement is a formal report of the financial activities of a business, person, or other entity.
Financial statements are a key component of accounting; the process of communicating information about a financial entity.
One such then-prominent residence was Abbotsford, once owned by prominent physician, amateur architect and botanist Dr. In the 1940s, during World War 2, the British (not Bermuda) Government made some war-time improvements.
It was so-named to honour Queen Victoria's eldest son Albert (nick-named Bertie), who married Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863 and took the name of King Edward VII when he finally ascended the British Throne in 1901 at the age of 60. Since first constructed as a single unit it has gobbled up once-nearby buildings in constant expansions and renovations along both Point Finger and Berry Hill Road.
However, the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), a set of guidelines and rules, are one means by which uniformity and comparability between financial statements is improved.
Recently there has been a push toward standardizing accounting rules made by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
Financial statements are presented in a structured manner with conventions accepted by accounting and regulatory personnel.
An entity’s financial statement typically includes four basic components: a balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, and statement of changes in equity: For complex entities, financial statements often include an extensive set of notes as an explanation of financial policies.

Because financial statements are widely relied upon, they must be straightforward to read and understand.
For large corporations, these statements are often complex and may include an extensive set of notes to the financial statements and explanation of financial policies andmanagement discussion and analysis.
Additionally, in terms of corporate governance, managing officials like the CEO and CFO are personally liable for attesting that financial statements are not untrue or misleading, and making or certifying misleading financial statements exposes the people involved to substantial civil and criminal liability.
Another set of limitations of financial statements arises from different ways of accounting for activities across time periods and across companies.
