Long-Term Assets


Long-Term Assets
1. The value of a company's property, equipment and other capital assets, minus depreciation. This is reported on the balance sheet.

2. A stock, bond or other asset that an investor plans to hold for a long period of time.

Be aware that long-term assets are usually recorded at the price at which they were purchased and do not always reflect the current value of the assets.
