Definitions

Balance assets are the enterprise’s own funds. The assets are divided into: long-term assets and current assets.

  • Long-term assets influence the economic activity of an enterprise in the course of several years, and they are divided into intangible assets, fixed assets, investment assets, biological assets and long-term financial assets.
  • Current assets – assets, which appear either in the form of money resources or are easily converted into cash or will be utilised during the reporting year or in the ordinary economic activity cycle. Kinds of current assets of enterprises: inventories, long-term assets for sale, debtors, short-term financial assets and money (in cash and bank accounts).

Balance liabilities include the following sources of financing: own capital and debenture capital (creditors).

  • Own capital – accounts representing those resources that constitute the property of the enterprise.
  • Long-term creditors and short-term creditors – debts which the enterprise must pay off to other legal units and natural persons.

Balance sheet is a systematised statement in financial terms of the resources and sources of these resources at a specified date.

The totals of assets and liabilities must always agree.

The balance sheet is a component of the annual statement.
