Order of the balance sheet

Also... does anybody have any tricks on how to remember the order of the balance sheet? Thanks :001_smile:

    I remember it by thinking I have to list assets first from easiest to spend to hardest, its obviously easier to spend cash in the bank than it is money a debtor hasn't paid you yet.

    Liabilities run on order that they will be cleared off, so its creditors before a mortgage.

    Hope that helps

    Fixed Assets

    Current Assets- In order of liquidity, ie what would be easiest to turn into cash, from bottom to top.
