How it is Used

The Income Statement allows business owners to evaluate the financial success of their business and clearly see where their revenues and expenses are coming from. Analysts can use the Income Statement to calculate various ratios that are useful for benchmarking a business. Some examples are Return on Equity (ROE) and Return on Assets (ROA). Income Statements can also be used to compare a business’s current performance with that of prior years.

Additional Information
