Balance Sheet

The balance sheet, also called statement of financial position, portrays the financial position of the public company by showing what the company owns and what it owes at the report date.

Additional Comments:

The balance sheet may be thought of as a snapshot, since it reports the company's financial position at a specific point in time. Usually balance sheets represent the current period and a previous period so that financial statement readers can easily identify significant changes.
