A balance sheet is one of the most important financial statements made by accountants and business owners. A business’ balance sheet offers a comprehensive overview of a company’s financial health by detailing a company’s assets, liabilities and shareholders’ equity. The balance sheet shows how cash flows throughout your finances and points to ways in which you can improve your company’s financial health.
Retained earnings are a little different. Remember the formula for the balance sheet? (Assets = Liabilities + Equity?) If you’ve filled out the rest of your balance sheet template, then you will have only retained earnings left to work with. Therefore, retained earnings are equal to Assets – Liabilities – Contributed Capital.
