External financial reporting

External financial reporting includes financial statements, financial summaries, and related disclosures that are issued to users outside of the reporting entity. This information is typically used by creditors, lenders, and investors to judge the performance of a business, as well as its ability to repay debts. External financial reports may be audited, in which case the auditor’s opinion letter accompanies the financial statements.
