Components and Sections of Owner's Operating Statement

The Owner's Operating Statement, also known as an Income Statement or Profit and Loss Statement, is a financial report that summarizes a business's revenues, expenses, and profits or losses over a specific period. The main components of an Owner's Operating Statement include the following:

  1. Income (Revenue): This section lists all the income generated by the business during the reporting period. It includes sales revenue, service revenue, and any other sources of income directly related to the business's operations.

  2. Cost of Goods Sold (COGS): This section includes the direct costs of producing the goods or services the business sells. It encompasses costs like raw materials, labor, and manufacturing expenses. COGS is subtracted from revenue to calculate the gross profit.

  3. Gross Profit: This is the difference between revenue and the cost of goods sold. It represents the basic profitability of the business before considering other operating expenses.

  4. Operating Expenses: This section includes all other expenses not directly related to producing goods or services. It includes salaries and wages, rent, utilities, marketing expenses, depreciation, etc. Operating expenses are subtracted from the gross profit to calculate the operating income.

  6. Other Income and Expenses: This section includes any additional income or expenses that are not directly related to the business's core operations. It may consist of interest income, interest expenses, gains or losses from the sale of assets, and other non-operating items.
