For the purposes of the balance sheet, the assets are the total of everything your business has are valued by the business. This might be something that’s in the form of real property, such as an office building with a parking garage. It could also be stocks, bonds, or working capital such as heavy machinery and equipment. Some businesses will even include their unsold inventory in this section.
The balance sheet, also called the statement of financial position, is the third general purpose financial statement prepared during the accounting cycle. It reports a company’s assets, liabilities, and equity at a single moment in time. You can think of it like a snapshot of what the business looked like on that day in time.
