How is the stockholders' equity section of a corporate balance sheet different from that in a single-owner business?
Stockholders' equity is to a corporation what owner's equity is to a sole proprietorship. Owners of a corporation are called stockholders (or shareholders), because they own (or hold) shares of the company's stock. Stock certificates are paper evidence of ownership in a corporation. For sole proprietorship stocks usually are not issued. Examples of stockholders' equity accounts include: - Common Stock - Preferred Stock - Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par Value - Paid-in Capital from Treasury Stock - Retained Earnings - Etc. Both owner's equity and stockholders' equity accounts will normally have CREDIT balances. How stockholders' equity is reflected in the balance sheet?

Is common stock have a normal debit or credit balance?
All Stock is listed under Owners Equity or also known as Stockholders Equity. If you look at the Accounting Equation you understand that Assets = Liabilities + Owners (Stockholders) Equity Assets maintain a Debit Balance, while Liabilities maintain a Credit Balance. OE (Stockholders Equity) also will maintain a Credit Balance. Therefore stock will maintain a "Credit" Balance. The only exception to this rule is "Treasury" stock which is stock purchased back by the company to reduce outstanding stock. Although Treasury Stock is still listed in Equity, it is listed as a negative number (or rather a debit).
