Domestic Dog Homes What is a profit and loss account? A profit and loss account is a yearly based financial document which shows the amount of money which is lost or gained within that financial year. This document helps banks determine the overall success of the business within the last year and when a business is trying to obtain credit, they would want to see the profit and loss to see their financial status. A profit and loss account also helps the business set forecasts for the following year so they can try to improve the profits and reduce costs to ensure they are successful.

For example a builder would need a van so he can take all his tools to jobs and it would need to be big enough and suitable to fit all his tools in. Current Assets A current asset is an asset which is not kept for a long period of time but is owned by the business.
