Understanding the Report Content

Assets: Your Business's Resources

The Assets section of the UPS® Store Balance Sheet outlines the resources owned by your business. It includes two main categories:

  • Current Assets: These are assets expected to be converted into cash or used within a year, such as cash, accounts receivable, inventory, and prepaid expenses.

  • Property and Equipment: This category represents long-term assets, including property, equipment, and other fixed assets used in your business operations.

Liabilities: Debts and Obligations

The Liabilities section of the balance sheet showcases your business's debts and obligations. It consists of two primary components:

  • Current Liabilities: These are short-term obligations expected to be settled within a year. Examples include accounts payable, short-term loans, and accrued expenses.

  • Long-Term Liabilities: These obligations extend beyond one year, such as long-term loans, mortgages, and other significant financial commitments.

Owner's Equity: Ownership Interest

The Owner's Equity section reflects the ownership interest in your business after deducting liabilities from assets. It represents the business's net worth, which is the residual interest available to the owner(s) after meeting all obligations. For a UPS Store, this includes the owner's initial investment and retained earnings.
