Mortgage loan is current liabilities or non-current liabilities

What are current liabilities?

Long-term liabilities, also known as long-term liabilities or long-term liabilities, are long-term financial liabilities that are included on the company’s balance sheet. These liabilities have liabilities that mature in more than twelve months in the future, unlike short-term liabilities, which are short-term liabilities that mature within the next twelve months.


  • Short-term liabilities, also known as long-term liabilities, are liabilities that are listed on the balance sheet with a maturity of less than one year.
  • To determine the leverage of a company, different ratios are used that use short-term liabilities, such as debt to assets and debt to equity.
  • Examples of short-term liabilities are long-term loans and lease obligations, accounts payable, and deferred income.

Current debts

Awareness of non-current debt

Non-current liabilities are measured in cash flows to determine whether a company will be able to meet its long-term financial obligations. While creditors are concerned about short-term liquidity and the current level of debt, long-term investors use non-current debt to assess whether the company uses more valuables. As a company’s cash flow becomes more stable, more debt can be incurred without increasing the risk of default.

While current debt assesses liquidity, non-current debt helps assess arbitrage.

Investors and creditors use a variety of financial balances to assess liquidity risk assessments. The debt ratio compares the debt of the whole company with the total assets, to give a general idea of ​​how it is raised. Low percentage, low level of company expenses and strength of its capital position. The higher the ratio, the more financial risks the company assumes. Other options are long-term debt for total assets and long-term debt for equity, which divides non-current debt by the amount of available capital.

Analysts also use risk reports to assess the financial position of a business, including cash flows in debt and interest coverage. Cash flow / debt ratio determines how long it takes a business to repay its debt if it devotes all its cash flow to debt repayment. The interest rate guarantee ratio, which is calculated by dividing the company’s profit before interest and tax (EBIT) by dividing interest payments for the same period, determines whether enough income is generated to cover interest payments. To assess short-term liquidity risk, analysts analyze liquidity ratios, such as current ratios, rapid ratios and acid test reports.

Examples of long-term debt

Long-term liabilities include bonds, long-term loans, liabilities, deferred tax liabilities, long-term lease liabilities and pension liabilities. The portion of the bonds that are not repaid next year is classified as long-term debt. Warranties covering more than one year are also recorded as current liabilities. Other examples are deferred benefits, deferred income and certain health debt. Mortgages, car payments, or other loans for machinery, equipment, or land are all long-term debts, except for the payments to be made in the subsequent twelve months which are classified as the current portion of long-term debt. Debt that is due within twelve months may also be reported as a noncurrent liability if there is an intent to refinance this debt with a financial arrangement in the process to restructure the obligation to a noncurrent nature.

Defining a Payable Mortgage Loan

The Mortgage Payable account contains the principal amount owed on a mortgage loan. (Any interest accrued since the last payment must be reported as Interest payable, a short-term obligation. Future interest is not reported on the balance sheet). Any principal amount payable within 12 months after the balance sheet date is reported as a short-term liability. The remaining principal amount is reported as a long-term liability (or long-term liability).

Example of a mortgage loan payable

Let’s say a business pays off a $238,000 mortgage loan and has to pay about $4,500 a month. Each monthly payment includes a principal payment of $3,000 plus interest of approximately $1,500. This means that the company will have to repay $36,000 ($3,000 x 12 months) of the loan principal over the next 12 months. Therefore, $36,000 is reported as a short-term obligation. The remaining principal of $202,000 ($238,000 minus $36,000) is reported as a long-term (or non-current) liability as this amount is not payable within one year after the balance sheet date. You can determine the principal amount due for the next year by checking the loan repayment schedule or asking your lender.
