Statement of Comprehensive Income

The Statement of Comprehensive Income

The statement of comprehensive income is one of the main financial statements.

The purpose of the statement is to show all changes in equity other than those resulting from investments by and distributions to the owners of the business.

Owner transactions are those such as share issues and dividends and are not part of the statement of comprehensive income. Non owner transactions are included in the statement, and are separated into items which pass through the income statement, represented by the net income of the business, and items which do not go through the income statement referred to as other comprehensive income.
