Definition of Net Worth

Essentially, it is a measure of what an entity is worth. For an individual, it represents the properties owned, less any debt the person has. For a company, net worth is the value of the business. It's a significant section of a provider's balance sheet and is sometimes called"owner's equity" or"shareholder's equity."


To arrive at a business's net worth, one must first calculate the current value of the company's assets. Assets typically include cash, cash equivalents, property, inventory, machinery and buildings. For people, assets include cash, savings accounts, property like homes and automobiles, investment accounts and other valuable properties, such as antiques and jewelry.

Liabilities & Debits:

The term"liabilities" refers to debt outstanding. It is basically money owed to someone else. It can be bank debt, bonds or promissory notes. It can also be more immediate debts, such as outstanding payments that the company owes to vendors or a line of credit at a bank. For individuals, credit card debt, car loans and mortgages make up the majority of liabilities.


Net worth and equity essentially mean the same thing, the value of the organization. Sometimes net worth is known as shareholder's equity, if the business is owned by shareholders. Net worth is very important to them.

For individuals, equity in a home is what you own, free and clear of the mortgage holder. For a homeowner, a considerable portion of net worth comes from the value of the house, minus the amount outstanding on any mortgages.

How to Increase Net Worth?

A firm or a person can increase its net worth by paying down liabilities or increasing assets. If a business has positive earnings on its income statement at the end of the year, this increases its net worth in the shape of retained earnings. On the other hand, negative earnings (losses) will decrease net worth. Paying out dividends may also decrease a company's net worth.
