Fixed asset is a long-term piece of tangible property or equipment that a business owns and utilizes in its operations to make money.
In broad terms, fixed assets are thought to last for at least a year before being used up, consumed, or turned into cash.
As a result, businesses can depreciate the value of these assets to take into account normal wear and use. Property, plant, and equipment (PP&E) is the most prevalent category for fixed assets on balance sheets (PP&E).
A company's assets, liabilities, and shareholder equity are listed on the balance sheet statement. The distinction between current and noncurrent assets is in the length of each type's useful life. The majority of the time, current assets are liquid, meaning they can be turned into cash in less than a year. Long-term investments, deferred charges, intangible assets, and fixed assets are examples of noncurrent assets, which are assets and property owned by a corporation that cannot be quickly converted to cash.
