No, Land is not a Current asset. Current Assets are assets that are expected to provide benefit to the company and convert into cash within one year. These help entities maintain liquidity. In short, we can say these Short term assets help in the day-to-day operations of an entity. Some common examples are Debtors, Inventory and Cash as they are liquid in nature. Land as a Current Asset Land is not a current asset but a fixed asset which is shown under the head Non-Current assets in the Balance sheet. Such assets are not sold or consumed by the entity but are held to produce goods and services. The full value of such assets will not be realized within one year; hence such assets are useful in the long run.
