We have dealt with the difference between your income statement and your bank statement in a previous blogpost, so in this one we will deal with why there is a difference between financial profit and taxable profit.

While not all small business owners fully understand the Income Statement and Balance Sheet, most recognise them and have a broad idea of what they are and how to use them.

This is a shame, because it’s actually an extremely handy report that can give you some very valuable insight into the health of your business.
