The Notes section is not really a report by itself, but it is an integral part of the Financial Statements report. According to the Finnish accounting law, completing the Notes is required from small- and micro sized companies. Here, a company can report shortly if there are any legally required comments to the report, for example a special status or the size of the business.
The Notes can be accessed directly from under:
- Reports - Financial statements - Notes to the Financial statements.
- Or from the generator by following the link. See below:
When you click on the link to the report or click on the report name, the list of questions with notes will open in a new.
The Notes to the Financial Statemnets page contains 27 Yes/No based questions or No such items exist/Specify statements about the business. These are based on the Finnish accounting law.
Please note that these questions are only available in Finnish and Swedish.
First you have to select the company size: micro or small company. Selecting Neither will remove the notes.
Go through all the questions and answer with them either with Yes/No or No such items exist/Specify. If the note needs a clarification, an empty text field will open where you can enter the necessary notes/specifications:
When you have finalised all the questions, click Save. All your notes have now been saved, and will appear in the Financial statements report, if the Notes are selected.
Please note that only the sections answered with notes are displayed in the the report, so for example a question answered with Yes will not show in the notes section.
