A share is a security issued by a joint stock company and represents a part of its share capital. It is the most important of the equity instruments used to transfer capital. Shares are divided into: registered shares, bearer shares, ordinary shares, and privileged shares.

Assets are assets controlled by the entity with a reliably determined value, arising from past events, which will result in an inflow of economic benefits to the entity in the future.

Assets can be divided into:

  • current assets (current assets),
  • fixed assets (fixed assets).
Current assets are assets which, according to the expectations of the enterprise, will be converted into cash or used up within 12 months from the balance sheet date or the so-called the operating cycle relevant to a given activity, if it lasts more than 12 months. Current assets are classified into inventories, short-term receivables and short-term investments.

Fixed assets are assets committed to the entity on a long-term basis, at least for a period longer than 12 months, with the period running from the balance sheet date. Fixed assets are characterized by a low degree of liquidity.

The group of fixed assets includes:

  • intangible assets,
  • tangible fixed assets,
  • Long-term receivables,
  • long term investments,
  • Long-term prepayments.
