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 is basically a report version of the accounting equation also called the balance sheet equation where assets always equation liabilities plus shareholder’s equity. In this way, the balance sheet shows how the resources controlled by the business (assets) are financed by debt (liabilities) or shareholder investments (equity). Investors and creditors generally look at the statement of financial position for insight as to how efficiently a company can use its resources and how effectively it can finance them.
