What is a current asset? What is a noncurrent asset? What is the difference between the two types  of assets? In which financial statement would you find these assets? A current asset is a balance sheet account that represents the value of all assets that are  reasonably expected to be converted into cash within one year in the normal course of  business. Current assets include cash, accounts receivable, inventory, marketable securities,  prepaid expenses and other liquid assets that can be readily converted to cash.  A noncurrent asset is a balance sheet accounts that is not easily convertible to cash or not  expected to become cash within the next year. Examples include fixed assets, leasehold  improvements, and intangible assets.  Current   assets   and   non-current   assets   can   be   found   on   the   balance   sheet.
