The balance sheet is one of the three basic financial statements, and it is essential for financial modeling and accounting. The balance sheet shows the overall assets of the organization as well as how those assets are financed, whether through debt or stock. A statement of net worth or a statement of financial status are other terms for the same thing. The fundamental equation that the balance sheet is founded on is Assets = Liabilities + Equity.

As a result, the balance sheet is split into two parts (or sections). The balance sheet's left side lists all of a company's assets. The balance sheet shows the company's obligations and shareholders' equity on the right side.
