Quotes of the day:

Know\'st thou the land where the lemon-trees bloom, Where the gold orange glows in the deep thicket\'s gloom, Where a wind ever soft from the blue heaven blows, And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose

— Johann von Goethe

A contingent asset is a potential economic benefit that is dependent on future events out of a company’s control. Not knowing for certain whether these gains will materialize, or being able to determine their precise economic value, means these assets cannot be recorded on the balance sheet. However, they can be reported in the accompanying notes of financial statements, provided that certain conditions are met. A contingent asset is also known as a potential asset.
