If people are inconsistent in classifying these items, it will be difficult to analyze trends and compare financial ratios between different farms. See how these farms/ranches are performing in relation to each other and make various comparisons.
PrintFill out this sheet and decide how they should be classified.

  • 1. Decide if the item is an asset or a liability. THEN
  • 2. Decide if it is a curent asset/liability or a non-current asset/liability

** Hint: Remember the definition of an asset and a liability. Remember the time factor portion of curent and non-current asset and liability definitions. This should help in determining each item below. Reread the portions on Assets and Liabilities if you are still unclear.
