this equation is
Revenue - Expenses = Net Income (or loss) also referred to as net profit.
Income statement is prepared to find out the profit or loss for one specific single fiscal year. If income statement is not prepared then there is no way to find out the profit or loss information for specific period of time.

Income Statement, Retained Earnings Statement, Statement of Equity, Balance Sheet, and then Statement of Cash Flows.
The Income Statement must be prepared first because the Current Profit or Loss (from the Income Statement) is needed in the Equity section of the Balance Sheet to make it balance. Also, the current profit or loss is the starting point to calculate Cash from Operations needed for the Cash Flow Statement.

NO; The Balance Sheet is prepare after the statement of owners Equity and income statement. The balance sheet used this other two statements. The Income statment needs to be preapred before Owners Equity because the earnings will affect old the others poperation. These statements are both wrong. From what it says in my Financial Accounting book right in front of me, the income statement is prepared first, not the statement of owners equity. In the statement of owners equity, or the statement of retained earnings, net income, calculated from the income statement, is needed to be added to the beginning retained earnings to get the ending retained earnings. Dividends can also then be subtracted from that number to arrive at the final balance of retained earnings for that period. This ending balance is then presented on the balance sheet under Total Stockholder's Equity as Retained Earnings.
