A First Look at the Balance Sheet

Transcript

The Balance Sheet is an important document very often requested by people interested in financing your business, such as a bank manager. This document is a summary of the financial balances of a business.

Clever Accounting offers two methods to obtain a Balance Sheet, one is delivered on screen in the form of a Balance Sheet Drilldown and the other is the Balance Sheet printed report. For this session we will talk about the on screen Balance Sheet Drilldown.

After logging in to Clever Accounting, select the Banking and General Ledger tab and then click on the Balance Sheet Drilldown link.
