Balance sheet Excel Template

The balance sheet is a very important financial statement that summarizes a company’s assets (what it owns) and liabilities (what it owes). However this is useful to gain insight into the financial strength of a company. You can also see how the company resources are divide and compare the information with similar companies.

No balance sheet statement is complete without an income statement to go along with it. As a small business owner, I find the income statement to be more useful in the general operation of the business. However the balance sheet is still a critical accounting tool that provides a key piece of information.

Balance sheet meaning

The balance sheet informs company owners about the net worth of the company at a specific point in time. This is by subtracting the total liabilities from the total assets to calculate the owner’s equity, also known as shareholder’s equity or simply the net worth.

The term current in a balance sheet generally means “short-term” which is usually one year or less. Common current assets includes cash (cash, coin, balances in checking and savings accounts), accounts receivable (amounts owed to your business by your customers usually within 10-60 days), inventory (goods for sale), and prepaid expenses (e.g. insurance and rent).

Long-Term Assets

These assets include long-term investments,

  • cost of property and equipment (e.g. land, buildings, equipment, tools, furniture, computers, vehicles, etc.)
  • offset by accumulate depreciation,
  • intangible assets (e.g. patents, contracts, trademarks, copyrights, and goodwill), and other assets (like defer income tax arising from the loss of value of property that can’t be as a tax deduction until the property is sold).

These include the obligations to pay within one year, including accounts payable, short-term loans, income taxes payable, wages, unearned revenue , and the current portion of long-term debt.
