It includes two sides, particularly credit and debit and for a simpler word one that is coming and the other that is going. It is focusing on the cash incoming and outgoing. The ultimate result of the statement is revenue deficit. The revenue is the profit or the excess of income over the expenditure. The deficit is the loss which is the excess of expenditure over the income. The statement is prepared as per guidelines and principles reflected in the Accounting Standards issued by ICAI.
