Business statements are of various kinds. Some state the purpose of a business whereas some state the philosophy or goals of the business. Some business statements also deal with financial transactions of the business while some deal with the employers. Hence depending on the nature of the business, its importance and significance will vary. Nonetheless, in general, business statements must be issued in order to present a clear and cogent picture of a business, whether in its initial stages or in its maturity. They must be issued to maintain transparency and address any areas which might need improvement. Some uses to which business statements may be put to are as follows:
- Business statements maintain transparency about the intentions of a business group. They are especially useful during the initial stages of a business in defining its goals and setting up ways of achieving those goals.
- Business statements are extremely useful as guiding documents. They serve as reference points in case of need. They may always be consulted if the need arises and they must be written well and with foresight in order to be useful.
- Business statements if dealing with finances provide a way of financial management that is easy and effective. Business financial statements must be released at appropriate intervals in order to maintain transparency and to avoid confusion or mistakes.
- Business statements also help other companies seeking a partnership or any kind of alliance with a business, to judge and decide on their course of action. Since a business statement gives an accurate picture of a company, it is used often as a consultation document.
Thus we see that the uses of a business statement are manifold and diverse. Any business statements presuppose accuracy and complete honesty and thus can claim part of the benefits associated with this category of statements.
