Net Worth

The difference between total assets and liabilities; the sum total of the assets of an individual or business minus the total amount owed to creditors.

The net worth of a corporation is ordinarily determined by subtracting the liabilities from the assets, or by adding the capital account to the surplus account, as shown in the balance sheet of the company.
