the same level as someone who goes above and beyond to give the most information possible and explanations so it’s easy to understand. The balance sheet is considered to be a “snap shot” of a company’s current financial situation. It balances assets to liabilities and owner’s equity. The assets portion includes how much cash a company has, how much money is own to the company from customers, how much product they have in inventory, all prepaid expenses (such as prepaid insurance or prepaid utility bills), property, equipment, investments. This will let me know the cash value of all the property, both tangible and intangible that the company has. The Liabilities portion includes accounts payable (money you own to others), salaries payable, loans, etc. Liabilities are important to know because it shows you how much money is going out. You could have assets totaling a million dollars and think a company is doing so well, then look at the liabilities and see that their paying out $950,000 and then you know that they are in a heap of trouble, so you wouldn’t want to invest in them. Owners’ equity records the money put in by the owners, or stock holders (in this example).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
