Net income is the amount of accounting profit a company has left over after paying off all its expenses. Net income is found by taking sales revenue and subtracting COGS,SG&A, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, taxes, and any other expenses.
Net income is the last line item on the income statement. Some income statements, however, will have a separate section at the bottom reconciling beginning retained earnings with ending retained earnings through net income and dividends.
Net income flows into the balance sheet through retained earnings – an equity account. This is the formula for finding ending retained earnings:
Ending RE = Beginning RE + Net Income – Dividends
Assuming there are no dividends, the change in retained earnings between periods should equal the net earnings in those periods. If there is no mention of dividends in the financial statements, but the change in retained earnings does not equal net profit, then it’s safe to assume that the difference was paid out in dividends.
