We use questions as a starting point for explaining the central aspects of an annual report, such as the balance sheet, the income statement, the statement of comprehensive income, the statement of changes in equity, the cash flow statement and the notes to the annual financial statements. In this issue we have further included the revised provisions for business reports, which must be adhered to under the new accounting law. Likewise, there is a special chapter on the coverage of management fees.
