trading period

trading period

the period of trading between two successive sets of financial accounts. To comply with the requirements of company law and taxation authorities, companies generally adopt a one-year trading period, producing an ANNUAL REPORT AND ACCOUNTS at the end of each trading period. However, because for internal management control purposes, much more frequent results are generally required, a company may produce PROFIT AND LOSS ACCOUNTS and BALANCE SHEETS at monthly or even weekly intervals.
