Balance Sheet

December 07, 2013  |     |     |   0 Comment

A balance sheet provides an overview of the assets, liabilities, and owner’s equity in a business at a given point in time. It tells an observer how much money a business owes to its creditors, what assets it owns or is owed, and how much money the shareholders have invested in the business.

It follows the simple formula: Assets = Liabilities + Owner’s Equity

Most websites are sold as asset sales with any liabilities excluded from the transaction. However, when purchasing a website business with its liabilities included, it is important to carefully study the website’s balance sheet that has been prepared by an accountant.
