Accounting Balance Sheet Example

An accounting balance sheet displays a company’s assets and claims to those assets by creditors and owners at a specific point in time. It is a summary of the accounting equation. The balance sheet has a similar property to the accounting equation in that the total of assets reported on the balance sheet must equal the combined total of liabilities and owners’ equity. This always must be true.
