ANNUAL REPORTS

Providing that you have been through the previous seven chapters you will by now understand that the production of an annual report is a legal requirement. Contained within it will be the main financial statements that we covered in Chapter 7 alongside a plethora of other information. Consequently, this short chapter will outline what the annual report is, what it contains and how to use it in its basic form. Once you are comfortable with picking up an annual report and reading it you will be able to confidently analyse its contents using the tools outlined in Chapter 9.
