THE STATEMENT OF CHANGES IN EQUITY

This is a very important report because it explains the movements in the shareholder funds during the year and also acts as a link between the income statement and the balance sheet.

The report also shows the total gains or losses made by the company during the year.  Some of these gains or losses may not be included in the income statement e.g. gains or losses on revaluation or PPE and investments (long -term)

The format of the statement of changes in equity is given as follows:

 

Preference share capital

Ordinary share capital

Share premium

Revaluation reserve

General reserve

Retained profits
