Balance Sheet: Fixed Assets v3.0

An asset is an item of economic value expected to yield a benefit to the owing entity in future periods. To provide information about liquidity, assets are divided into current and non-current assets on the balance sheet. A current asset, such as cash, account receivable, and prepaid expenses, is expected to be consumed within one year, while non-current assets, such as long-term investments, property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets, are to be consumed in more than one year. This course discusses generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for reporting fixed assets (property, plant & equipment) on the balance sheet.
