A balance sheet is a financial “snapshot” of your business at a given date in time. It includes your assets and liabilities and tells you your business’s net worth.

Also called a statement of financial position, a balance sheet is a financial “snapshot” of your business at a given date in time. It lists your assets, your liabilities, and the difference between the two, which is your owner’s equity, or net worth. The accounting equation (assets = liabilities + owner’s equity) is the basis for the balance sheet.
