  • A (assets) = L (liabilities) + E (shareholders' equity).

    An asset is a resource with economic value that an individual, corporation, or country owns or controls with the expectation that it will provide a future benefit. Assets are reported on a company's balance sheet and are bought or created to increase a firm's value or benefit the firm's operations. An asset can be thought of as something that, in the future, can generate cash flow, reduce expenses, or improve sales, regardless of whether it's manufacturing equipment or a patent.

    Every balance sheet must balance, which means that the total value of a firm's assets must equal the sum of its liabilities plus shareholders' equity.
