A basic balance sheet is formatted beginning with Assets (current first then non-current) Liabilities (Current first then long-term) and Owner (shareholders) Equity. The account amounts are taken from the General Ledger after all temporary accounts are closed at the end of the fiscal year. Temporary accounts are Expenses and Revenue accounts which are closed into income summary and then finally retained earnings (or Statement of Retained Earnings which is an O.E. account)

Categorize all assets by type (cash, receivables, equipment). Categorize all liabities by type (accruals, accounts payable, loans payable). Determine initial investm…ent in business. Difference is "retained earnings", which is cumulative profit from the start of the business. The above assumes proper tracking of sales, purchases, disbursements, etc. Balance sheet shows the financial positions of any company by comparing two sections: liabilites and assests.

A balance sheet account is any item that is found on the financial statement known as the balance sheet. The figures reflected on the balance sheet, consist of the ending bala…nce of the balance sheet account. After all the transactions are posted in the individual balance sheet account's "T" account (involving debits and credits), the ending balance is the amount found on the balance sheet.
Several ways are used to prepare balance sheet. 1First you need to list all of your assets. Assets include the cash you have in the bank and the property you own, whether in t…he form of land, buildings or equipment. Your assets should be categorized into accounts with titles such as Cash, Temporary Investments, Accounts Receivable (money that is owed to you), Real Estate Owned, Automobiles, Furniture and Other Property. These assets are usually broken down into current and long-term assets. Some examples of current assets are the cash you have in your checking or savings accounts and any money that is owed to you. Long-term assets include assets that will be held for longer periods of time such as the cash value of your life insurance, the market value of real estate that you own and the value of your retirement fund. 2Next you need to list all of your liabilities. Liabilities include the everyday bills that you owe, the mortgage balance on your home and taxes that are due at a later date. Your liabilities should be categorized into accounts with titles such as Current Bills, Real Estate Mortgages, Car Notes, Taxes Owed and Other Liabilities. Liabilities are also usually broken down into current and long-term liabilities. Some examples of current liabilities are your credit card bills, your cell phone bill and your electric bill. Long-term liabilities include obligations that will be paid in the future such as your home mortgage, your car loan and some taxes. 3Once you have listed all of your assets and liabilities you can calculate your net worth by simply subtracting the total of your liabilities from the total of your assets. This is your net worth. Obviously, you want this number to be as high as possible. Using a personal balance sheet can help you identify ways to raise your net worth. Having your home re-appraised may allow you to increase your assets, thereby increasing your net worth. Cutting back on your current bills, such as credit card charges for entertainment, or paying down your car loan early will also increase your net worth by reducing your liabilities. Taking the time to put together a personal balance sheet is the best way to plan for future prosperity.
