2.10 - Liabilities

Why are Taxes included in non-current liabilities though we pay them for this particular quarter/year??

And if loan in current liabilities is 1,00,000..why hasn't the non-current loan decreased to 24,00,000..bcz we finally end up calculating an increase in Total Liabilities.

You are right about the 24,00,000. We will fix that in the video.


typically tax is a current liability in an annual balance sheet since it has to be paid in the same year. since the balance sheet in the video was for 1 month and the tax was not going to be paid after a few months we showed it as a non-current liability.


@Binny I am a bit confused here. Do you mean to say that since the balance sheet is just for a month the Tax liability which was not going to be paid for a few months got classified as long term/non current liability ?
And had it been the case of annual B/S it would have remained as current liability ?
The balance sheet gives us the status of a company's assets and liabilities as of the Balance sheet date. What does balance sheet 'for one month' mean ?


Aditya - Good question. You are right B/S is a snapshot as of a specific date. Taxes such as payroll taxes are typically classified as current liabilities since they will come due in the upcoming financial year.
