# Comparative Statement | Accounts Class 12

## Comparative Statement

Comparative statement is prepared in order to compare the figures of financial statements for two or more years. It gives an idea about the financial health of the organisation. Every company which wants to estimate its future progress must refer to its past performance. When financial statements of one firm for two or more years are compared then it is known as inter-period comparison. Similarly, when financial statements of two or more firms are compared over a number of years then it is known as inter-firm comparison.
