Common Annual Report Questions
When we start talking with a client about an annual report project, we start with some basic questions:
- Are there previous annual reports we can review?
- Do you have all your content ready? If not, what stage is your content at?
- What is the main purpose of the Annual Report? Is this AR used as a tool to show off the organization?
- What are your deadlines? Is there an annual meeting the report will be presented at?
- Will the report be printed, distributed as PDF, or as webpage?
Frequently Asked Questions about annual reports
Do I have to print my annual report?
No, you do not have to print your annual report. It really depends on what your stakeholders expect. Many organizations are moving toward going paperless, and the annual reports can be designed and published in PDF format.
What information is in an annual report?
An annual report is a comprehensive document that reports on what an organization has achieved in the previous year. Annual reports include an introduction of the company, mission statement, brief history and personal message from CEO or board director. There is a financial section that can include current stock prices if applicable, historical financial information and current income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement.
Companies that only have to report basic financial information may wish to dedicate a large portion of the annual report to reporting on and generating goodwill. Discussions and photos showing the organization’s involvement in community initiatives may be used throughout the annual report.
