In today’s global business environment, the accuracy and timeliness of financial reporting and its effects on ethical decision making has had an important effect on corporations, its employees, its lenders and the financial markets. It’s become increasingly important that international financial statements be translated accurately for the various uses and users.
Who Needs Accurate Financial Translations?
Accountants and top managers are not the only people who rely on accurate financial reports. Personnel throughout an organization and people with direct financial interest in a business rely on accurate financial data to analyze, benchmark and report on business performance. Their reports describe historical profit and loss and help forecast future performance. These reports are then used by stockbrokers and industry analysts to evaluate investment opportunities.
- Investors Stockholders partly base their decisions on whether to buy or sell stock based on past performance. An analysis of the corporation’s past success and prospective earnings helps them gauge the attractiveness of future investments. Once they make an investment, they might later review past financial statements to determine the success of their investment strategies.
- Creditors Corporations frequently borrow money for long-term and short-term requirements. A Creditor can either be a financial institution that lends or a supplier that provides good and services on credit. Creditors need to know if they can trust the corporation to repay its debts and interest on time. To make this decision, a financial institutions, mortgage companies, insurance firms and suppliers will often review a corporation’s liquidity and earnings.
Government and Regulatory Agencies
Government agencies and public groups, including tax authorities, regulatory agencies, and various other groups also use corporate financial data to make decisions on public issues.
- Tax Authorities Federal, state and city governments are interested in financial data to assess the amount of tax corporations, organizations and individuals owe. The government collects many types of taxes including federal, state, and city income taxes; social security and other payroll taxes; excise taxes; and sales taxes. Each tax requires special tax returns and often a complex set of records as well. Accurate reporting is required by law.
- Regulatory Agencies Various regulatory agencies at the federal, state, and local levels also require a complex set of financial reports. For example, corporations must report to the Federal Trade Commission on subjects relating to issuing stock and buying back outstanding stock.
