HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2014 3 SBDC Financial plan elements-F"ofit and loss statements made easy By SBDC Staff Financial experts will have different opinions about what should be included in a financial plan, depending on the type of business you have and what you're trying to accomplish with your business plan. But whether you're thinking of starting a busi- ness, expanding your current business, or just want to under- stand your current business bet- ter, there are a few key financial items that you should definitely include: • Profit and loss statement • Cash flow statement • Balance sheet • Sales forecast • Personnel plan • and maybe some business ratios and/or a break-even analysis Even if you're in the very beginning stages of your busi- ness, these financial statements can still work for you. Develop- ing your financial plan from ba- sic numbers is both possible and very helpful. This week's Busi- ness Report will discuss the profit and loss statement. A profit and loss statement is essentially an explanation of how your business made a profit (or incurred a loss) over a certain period of time. It's a table that lists all of your revenue streams and all of your expenses--typically for a three-month period--and lists at the very bottom the total amount of net profit or loss. This is a financial statement that goes by a few different names--profit and loss state- ment, income statement, pro forma income statement, P&L (short for "profit and loss")--but no matter what you call it, it's an essential report and very impor- tant to understand. QUICK TIP: The term "pro forma" in front of any financial statement primarily serves to la- bel that version of the statement as not adhering to the strict "gen- erally accepted accounting prin- ciples" (GAAP) standards that all publicly-traded companies must use to produce their financial statements. Major corporations use pro forma statements to illus- trate projected numbers, like in the case of a merger or acquisi- tion, or to emphasize certain cur- Ed Kerr I, Ed Kerr, hereby announce my candidacy for the office of Hidalgo County Commissioner, Position 1.

GAAP standards don't apply to small businesses, so you don't really need to worry about distinguishing your finan- cial statements as "pro forma" or not--everyone you show them to expects that they're not GAAP- compliant. But if you want to be technically correct in your termi- nology, go ahead and call your financial statements "pro forma." There are different formats for profit and loss statements, de- pending on the type of business you're in and the structure of your business (non profit, LLC, C- Corp, etc.). A typical profit and loss statement should include: • your revenue (also called sales), followed by • your "cost of sale" or "cost of goods sold" (COGS)--keep in mind, some types of companies, such as a services firm, may not have COGS • your gross margin, which is your revenue less your COGS These three components (revenue, COGS, and gross mar- gin) are the backbone of your business model--i.e., how you make money• You'll also list your operat- ing expenses, which are the ex- penses associated with running your business that aren't incurred directly by making a sale. They're the fixed expenses that don't fluctuate depending on the strength or weakness of your rev- enue in a given month--think rent, utilities, and insurance. Your gross margin less your operating expenses will give you your operating income: Gross Margin - Operating Expenses = Operating Income Depending on how you classify some of your expenses, your op- erating income will typically be equivalent to your "earnings be- fore interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization" (EBITDA)-- basically, how much money you made in profit before you take your accounting and tax obliga- tions into consideration. This is also called your "profit before interest and taxes," gross profit, and "contribution to over- head"--many names, but they all refer to the same number. Your so-called "bottom line"--officially, your net in- come, which is found at the very end (or, bottom line) of your profit and loss statement--is your EBITDA less the "ITDA." Just subtract your expenses for inter- est, taxes, depreciation, and am- ortization from your EBITDA, and you have your net income: Operating Income - Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amor- tization expenses = Net Income An archive of SBDC Busi- ness Reports can be found at http://www.grantcounty items Western New Mexico University's Small Business De- velopment Center offers assis- tance to entrepreneurs who are starting a business or wanting to expand an existing business.
