Our concern for the analysis of the annual and interim financial reporting was generated by the importance that each entity must give, which in certain periods of its activity is required to give it to this strategic source of information. In each entity questions arise regarding the usefulness of the annual and interim financial reports considering: their (relatively long) preparation time, their limited character and the resources to be allocated for their preparation. Finding a common solution to these problems and implicitly increasing the interest for financial reporting, especially interim, can contribute to increasing the economic performance of the entity, either by reducing unnecessary costs (waste) of time, or by increasing communication and transparency with third parties (creditors, customers, etc.), an appropriate management can act early in the direction of counteracting the negative effects in the activity of the entity or in the direction of preventing possible commercial or production failures, on the overall economic trends in the field in question and on increasing productivity. The article is a theoretical analysis of the annual financial reports versus interim financial reports, starting from international and national regulations, usefulness of comparative data, etc., underlining the particular importance of both types of reports.
