What is a financial statement? Purpose of financial statements

According to Article 3(1) of Law on Accounting 2015, a financial statement is an economic and financial information system of an accounting unit presented according to the form specified in accounting standards and accounting regime.

Financial statements are applicable to all types of enterprises established and operating under Vietnamese law. Enterprises are obliged to prepare and submit truthful, accurate and timely financial statements according to the provisions of law on accounting and statistics.

In Article 97 of Circular 200/2014/TT-BTC, the purpose of financial statements is as follows:

  • Firstly, financial statements are used to provide information about the financial position, business situation and cash flows of an enterprise, meeting the management requirements of business owners, State agencies and the useful needs of users in making economic decisions.

    Financial statements must provide an enterprise's information about: Assets; Liabilities must pay; Equity; Revenue, other income, production and business expenses and other expenses; Profit, loss and distribution of business results; Cash flows.
  • Secondly, in addition to this information, the enterprise must also provide other information in the "Notes to the Financial Statements" to further explain the items reflected in the consolidated financial statements and the accounting policies used to recognize arising economic transactions, prepare and present financial statements.

Types of financial statements in business

According to the provisions of Law on Accounting 2015, the following types of financial statements are available:

First, annual financial statements

Every year, enterprises must prepare financial statements according to the specific form prescribed in the law and must prepare them in full form. Annual administrative reports include: Balance sheet; Report on business results; Statements of cash flows; Financial statement notes.

The annual financial statements can be calculated according to the calendar year or the annual accounting period of 12 full months after notification to the tax authorities. Enterprises are allowed to change the annual accounting period; however, when changing enterprises, they need to prepare separate financial statements for the period between the two accounting periods of the old fiscal year and the new financial year.

Second, the interim financial statements

Interim financial statements are understood as financial statements for four quarters of a fiscal year (where the fourth quarter is the last quarter of the year) and semi-annual financial statements. The interim financial statements are prepared according to specific forms prescribed by law, which can be prepared in full or summary form. Especially for state-owned enterprises and listed companies, it is mandatory to prepare interim financial statements. For other types of enterprises, it is encouraged but not required to prepare interim financial statements.

In addition, the financial statements may be prepared and presented on a consolidated or non-consolidated basis.
