The accounting equation states the equality and establishes the relationship between the three main elements. Assets are economical resources and the granting to the Company owns, or any other juridical face, and to-rye should be profitable in the future. A liability is the company's debts to creditors. Shareholders' equity is shown in the equation as the remainder of the difference between assets and liabilities. Is used can also be represented as follows:
Assets = Liabilities + Equity
We call those non-current assets and property rights acquired with the intention of remaining in business for over a year.

In an economist and accountant fundamentally different problems, this often leads to the fact that it is easy to understand each other. On should know, what is the difference between an economist and an accountant? Economist, it is important that the company had a profit. And it does not matter whether the asset will converge to a liability.
A bookkeeper is essential that converged asset with a liability. And it does not matter whether a firm's profits. These jokes are very large grain of ...
