LLC balance sheets contain three parts. They start with assets, which are defined as the monetary value of what a company owns, including but not limited to cash, inventory, and paid insurance and rent. Assets can be current or fixed. Current assets are depleted over the year; these include cash, inventory, insurance and rent. Fixed assets such as property, company equipment and land last more than one year.
Liabilities are the things that a company must repay. They are often labeled as accounts payable, bonds payable, interest payable or wages payable. Liabilities also exist when companies are paid for services they have yet to deliver. This is considered unearned revenue. Set up much like assets, liabilities can be current or fixed, wherein current must be paid out before year's end and fixed liabilities do not.
