Balance sheet

A balance sheet (balansräkning) is a summary of a limited company’s assets, equity, provisions, allocations and liabilities on the last day of its financial year.

The layout of the balance sheet is stipulated in the legislation. There are also regulations for evaluation of the various entries.

Please note

Before sending the balance sheet to Bolagsverket, make sure that

  • it has been summed up correctly; and
  • the balance sheet total (the total assets) adds up to the same amount as the total equity, the allocations and the liabilities.
