Current liabilities are reported in order of settlement date separately from long-term debt on the balance sheet. Payables, like accounts payable, with settlement dates closer to the current date are listed first followed by loans to be paid off later in the year. This allows external users the ability to analyze the liquidity and debt coverage of a company. In other words, they can analyze how many debts will become due in the next year and whether or not the company will have enough short-term resources to pay these debts when they become due.
Daily compounding interest refers to when an account adds the interest accrued at the end of each day to the account balance so that it can earn additional interest the next day and even more the next day, and so on. To calculate daily compounding interest, divide the annual interest rate by 365 to calculate the daily rate. Add 1 and raise the result to the number of days interest accrues. Subtract 1 from the result and multiply by the initial balance to calculate the interest earned.
