Financial Definition of BALANCE SHEET
What It Is
The balance sheet is a financial report that lists a company's assets (what it owns), liabilities (what it owes to others), and equity.
How It Works
The first section of the balance sheet gives a detailed list of a company's assets, including long-term assets (such as real estate and machinery), current assets (anything that can easily be converted to cash in less than a year), and cash.
The second section goes over the company's liabilities, or what it owes others. This is always an important section for investors to read because even the most stable of companies will face problems if it has an unusually high amount of debt on its books (especially if it has to pay it back sooner rather than later).
