    Which country? In the UK, check out Companies House website. Probably a similar organisation in the USA. In other countries, companies are not necessarily required to post the accounts.

    Hello, in order to see financial statements for a company that company must be public. Private companies do not have a requirement to publish their accounts.

    If the company is publicly traded you can obtain a copy of their accounts in their published annual or semi-annual report. For more detailed financial statements you can request details of their SEC filings in the US. Copies of finacial reports can be obtained online at a company website or by writing to the company financial office or at a  large public library  or a good stockbroking service.  The SEC also maintain a website for such details and have several years filings for many major companies and corporations.

    As DreamerMeg has stated, it really depends on where the company is headquartered. The little research I have done on non-US companies, if they are a publicly traded company on that country's stock exchange, particularly if they can be traded internationally, they probably file public forms similar to US and UK companies. If they are large enough, you may be able to find them on their websites. If not, write them directly with "Investor" on the outside of the envelop so they will direct the inquiry to the right department. Good luck/!
