Statement of Changes in Equity

A Statement of Changes in Equity is a Financial statement of all changes in equity arising from transactions with owners (i.e. owner changes in equity) reflecting the increase or decrease in net assets in the period. The Statement of Changes in Equity provides a linkage between the entity’s Statement Of Financial Position and its Statement Of Comprehensive Income.

A Statement of Changes in Equity is partitioned into three segments:

  • Retrospective application of changes in accounting policies to the previous period
  • Retrospective restatement of prior period errors
  • Reconciliation of the changes of each component of equity in the current period

Alternative names for Statement of Changes in Equity include: Statement of Changes in Owner's Equity (sole proprietors), Statement of Changes in Partners' Equity (partnerships), Statement of Changes in Shareholders' Equity (Corporation), and Statement of Changes in Taxpayers' Equity (Government).
