Annual revenue is defined as the total income generated from the sale of goods or services in one financial year by an organization, profit or non-profit. The total amount is associated with any operational expenses, but does not subtract any miscellaneous charges, costs, or other expenses yet. The figures represented by a company’s annual revenue are used in financial statements to state financial well-being for the accounting department.

Annual revenues form an important part of any financial statement, and are usually the first numbers seen in any report. Other important components included are the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. The income statement is a numerical summary of all sales and expenses that occurred in the fiscal year. The income statement is further broken down into various statements such as: Net sales, cost of sales, gross profit, administrative expenses, operating income, interest expense, pretax income, income taxes, miscellaneous expenses, net income, and comprehensive income.

The balance sheet discusses assets, liabilities, and shareholders’ equities in accounting. This helps to show investors what the company owns or owes, as well as the amount put in by investors. The basic formula to compute this is : Assets = liabilities + shareholders’ equity. The last component is the cash flow statement discusses the general flow of cash in and out of the business.

Categories involved in enumerating cash flow include: Operating activities, investing activities, financing activities, and supplemental information. The cash flow in particular has significant value for investors because it clearly tells if a company generates more cash than it is expending, dividends can be increased as well as the value of its stock, with decreased debt.

These figures all form important aspects of a company’s accounting, which should be handled by a professional and certified accountant. Interpreting these figures are just as important whether a company is new or old, as it tells the health of any organization and where they need to improve for better profits.

The term 'annual revenue' describes a phenomenon in which the total revenue that is collected in one financial year by a particular organisation is being taken as a sum and it shows the financial status of the company. It also shows that what amount of money is being put on the while dealing with the company and in their financial statement, the company displays all the data pertinent to the revenue of the company that it has earned in one financial year.

The term is extremely important for a business organisation because it is this figure that shows you the total money that the company has made and by reducing all the cost from the annual revenue, the company can decide on the net profit in that financial year.
