Capital are the resources provided/supplied by the owner to/for a company. The resources provided by the owner of business are called capital. The resources in a business are called its assets. If all the resources are supplied by the owners, Assets = Capital Resources provided by other than owners are called liabilities. In that case, Assets = Liabilities + Capital Capital is the term to use in beginning of the business. Once business runs, it become owner’s equity meaning owner’s share in assets. Assets = Liabilities + Owner’s equity More on accounting equation in lecture handout.
