Ask A CPA - Bookkeeping & Write-up

In My Balance Sheet , What Accounts Are Classified As Current Assets ?

Generally, cash, petty cash, supplies, prepaid expenses, accounts and notes receivable, inventories and any other item that can be converted into cash within one year are classified as current assets. Cash is any medium of exchange that a bank will accept at face value. Notes Receivables are claims against debtors evidenced by a written promise to pay a certain sum of money at a definite time to the order of a specified person. Accounts receivable are claims against debtors which are less formal than note receivables that arise from sales of services or merchandise on account.
