An income statement, also referred to as the profit-and-loss statement, is one of the major financial statements used by accountants and businessmen. Other major financial statement samples include the balance sheet, cash flow statement, and stockholder’s equity statement.
All public companies must submit these legal documents to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the investor public. Unlike the balance sheet, which covers one moment at a time, the income statement provides performance information in a specific time period.

A single-step income statement uses a single calculation to determine a company’s net income. It adds up all of the earnings a company brings in from all its activities, and then the total expenses are subtracted from the gains to calculate the net income.
A multiple-step income statement provides a more detailed look at a company’s performance. It contains an itemized list of all gains and losses and separates the operating and non-operating activities. The end result helps the company in comparing their performance with their finances in a better and easier manner.
