Reporting - Profit and Loss statements
* Cash flow statement 
* Profit and Loss statement
* Balance sheet
When preparing reports the Profit and Loss statement requires both
vertical and horizontal classification. The multi column Profit and
Loss statement must indicate both gross margin and contribution margin. 
Make sure that you classify expenses.
Likely errors when compiling reports include the display of aliens such as
drawings, loan repayment and petty cash as expenses and the incorrect
calculation of depreciation. This takes place when depreciation is shown
for one year and the reporting period is only one month.
