The reclassification of the statutory financial statements
Leanus allows you to reclassify any balance sheet or accounting situation in real time. By reclassification of the financial statements we mean theirs reorganization according to a model more suited to understanding and evaluation of the same data from a management point of view.
Leanus performs automatically following reclassifications:
- from statutory budget to classic income statement
- from statutory financial statements to operating income statements
- from statutory financial statements to balance sheets to sources and uses
- from statutory financial statements to balance sheet for liquidity
- from statutory financial statements (XBR extension) to AQR extension 1
- from statutory financial statements to standardized statutory scheme (complete model downloadable in excel)
- from statutory financial statements to Other Schemes (Bank, Corporate Bank, and other customized models)
The reclassification of the statutory financial statements takes place in real time. The user then has the possibility to modify and customize the reclassification criteria.

Before proceeding with the reclassification, memorize the main schemes and the relative signs with which the single values are represented.
Management of the sign (same sign - opposite sign)
Before proceeding with the reclassification, remember that:
the following items in the Income Statement they are represented with a minus sign
- Purchasing Dept.
- Fixed costs
- Variable costs
therefore if they are reported in the source with the sign (+), must be reclassified reversing the sign (opposite sign).
In the Balance Sheet to Sources and Employment, the following items they are represented with a minus sign
- Depreciation Fund
- Payables to suppliers
- Other payables
- Liquid assets
