Current liabilities

Current liabilities are obligations that a company is expected to pay within one year or within the company's operating cycle, whichever is longer.

Examples of current liabilities include accounts payable, short-term debt, and taxes. Current liabilities are reported on a company's balance sheet and are considered a short-term debt that the company needs to repay within a short period of time.
