Profit & Loss

Danish translation: Driftsregnskab

12:11 Feb 23, 2008
English to Danish translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Accounting
English term or phrase: Profit & Loss
Isn't "resultatopgørelse" a correct translation, despite the fact that it doesnt say "Profit & Loss account here? Doesnt it always refer to that?

It's from a text with an overview of financial operations, types of assets, etc.

Context: "Impairment = Amounts written-off to the Profit & Loss in respect of the permanent diminution in value of goodwill being carried with respect to an acquired business."

Any comments appreciated. Thanks

Tak for hjælpen! Jeg valgte nu alligevel at skrive resultatopgørelse hele vejen igennem. Det var også det foreslåede i http://www.regnskabsordbogen.dk/
