INTRODUCTION
The GAAP rules enable companies to draw up three financial statements: a revenue
statement, a balance sheet, and a cash flow statement. Financial statements are records of a
company, individual, or any other entity's economic activities. The financial statements of the
companies are based on generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Financial
Accounting Standards Committee shall lay down the rules for preparing the financial statements
(FASB). Standard rules ensure that a company's financial statements accurately reflect the
company's financial status. Companies generally submit three accounts. The information in these
statements is significant for investors and public regulatory agencies and how this information
varies over time.

not always desirable. A company's liquidity is determined by the distinction between liabilities
and conditional reserves between existing assets. Market analysts and prospective investors may
use this ratio to determine the appropriate stability and financial viability of the company's debts
and outstanding liabilities.
A low liquidity ratio may indicate financial difficulties for a company. On the other hand,
a high liquidity ratio can prioritize growth and growth to the effective use of capital. The current
ratio and the quick ratio are two commonly examined liquidity ratios. The current balance
determines the ability of a company to fulfill its short-term obligations by comparing existing
assets to liabilities. This is a short-term measure of liquidity that companies must maintain to meet
short-term bonds and costs.
