Viewing Your Balance Sheet in Patriot Software

Background: Your small business balance sheet

A balance sheet summarizes the assets, liabilities, and equity of the organization at a specific point in time. One of the most important financial statements for your business, the balance sheet shows what the business owns and what it owes, and can be used as a gauge of the company’s financial health. An owner may use this report to calculate small business financial ratios that help determine financial performance or compare to previous periods to discover trends. A banker may request to view your balance sheet if you apply for a loan. For further reading, see our blog article about your business balance sheet.
