Balance Sheet Template

Some describe the balance sheet as a "snapshot" of the company's financial position at a point (a moment or an instant) in time. For example, the amounts reported on a balance sheet dated December 31, 2012 reflect that instant when all the transactions through December 31 have been recorded. It summarizes the company's assets, liabilities and shareholders' equity at a specific point in time. The three balance sheet segments in the Excel file below give investors an idea as to what the company owns and owes, as well as the amount invested by the shareholders. This is intended to be a simple and practical tool to be adjusted and used by SMEs working in all sectors. You may adapt it to reflect your business needs, type of clientele, products and services you offer. It provides the minimum information required by financial institutions for assessing loan applications, tax authorities and potential investors.

Although the template is an example of a balance sheet for a sole proprietorship, you can quickly modify it for a corporation or partnership. You can add or delete account titles, revise the format, or otherwise modify it to suit your needs.
