Companies use several tools such as a balance sheet to make sound business decisions. A balance sheet is a financial statement that shows a summary of a company's or individuals assets, liabilities and shareholders' equity of a period of time usually after the fiscal year. Assets are items of ownership convertible into cash. This report shows the expenses, debts, and the amount of money invested by the shareholders. The assets and liabilities are separated into short-term and long-term obligation such cash, money markets, government securities and accounts payable. In financial scenarios, liabilities are monies owed, debts, or monetary obligations.
