Profit and loss accounts Why is producing a profit and loss account useful for a business?

Businesses are legally required by the government to produce annual profit and loss accounts at the end of each financial year for the Inland Revenue. At the end of each financial year private limited (Ltd) and public limited (PLC) companies must produce audited annual accounts for the Inland Revenue – for it to calculate how much tax they owe. Do you know when the financial year begins and ends in the UK?

It can be recorded by hand into an accounts ledger, or entered into a computer spreadsheet or accounts package.
