i.e How a business is being financed
For a given date, the Balance sheet shows the following for the company:
Firstly, total Assets. Items of value the firm owns or controls,
which it uses to earn revenues.
Secondly, total Liabilities. What the firm owes.
Thirdly, total Owners Equities. What the firm owns outright.
More accurately, the Balance sheet shows end-of-period balances in the firm's Assets, Liabilities, and Owners Equity accounts. However, its name includes "Balance" for another reason.
