Assets


Assets
What is an asset? Basically, an asset is anything a company owns that has value. Cash that the company has on hand (whether in the bank or in the office), accounts receivable (this is money that is owed to the company and is likely to be received in a timely manner), real estate (buildings and/or land), equipment and inventory are all considered to be assets.

It is usually assumed that an asset has value enough to be sold in the event that a company has to liquidate its assets. That is, if the company had to raise money whatever it is claiming as an asset would have enough value that a buyer could be found.
