Financial Analysis is a process to analyze the financial status and related entities of a company to be in a better position to evaluate its strength and profitability. It also helps deduce the credibility of investing into the business. A financial model, on the other hand is the financial representation through which analysis is made possible.
Cash flow statement
It is a detailed record of all the accrued and prepaid cash flows into and out of the business. Cash flows evidently point out trends/mistakes in the accounts especially the ones difficult to detect from an income statement or a balance sheet.
Income Statement (profit and loss account)
This is one of the most common type of financial models and forms the basis of financial analysis. It follows a general format to record the revenues and expenses incurred in an accounting period. The aim of an income statement is to reach a net income for that term.
Balance sheet (Statement of Financial Position)
A balance sheet is a systematic representation of all the assets, liabilities and capital of a business. Similar to an income statement, a balance sheet also follows a general format based on a common accounting formula: Assets= Liabilities + Capital
