A balance sheet is a statement of the total assets and liabilities of an organisation at a particular date - usually the last date of an accounting period. The balance sheet is split into two parts: (1) A statement of fixed assets, current assets and the liabilities (2) A statement showing how the Net Assets have been financed. The Companies Act requires the balance sheet to be included in the published financial accounts of all companies. A balance sheet does not necessarily "value" a company
