Format of the Balance Sheet

It shows the financial position of the company as at the end of a given financial period. The standard requires that assets and liabilities should be classified between current and non-current portions.

Currently, the standard requires the first part of  the balance sheet to show the total assets (i.e. non-current assets + current assets) and the second part of the balance sheet to show equity and liabilities. Equity is the shareholders funds while liabilities are the total of non-current and current liabilities.

The format of the balance sheet is given as follows:
