Current, non-current and contingent liabilities
There are three types of liabilities: current, non-current, and contingent liabilities. Liabilities are legal obligations or debt owed to another person or company. In other words, liabilities are future sacrifices of economic benefits that an entity is required to make to other entities as a result of past events or past transactions.

There are three main classifications of liabilities:
Current liabilities, also known as short-term liabilities, are debts or obligations that are due within one year.

Non-current liabilities, also known as long-term liabilities, are debts or obligations that are due in over a year’s time. Long-term liabilities are an important source of a company’s long-term financing. Companies take on long-term debt to acquire immediate capital to fund the purchase of capital assets or invest in new capital projects.
Long-term liabilities are crucial in determining a company’s long-term solvency. If companies are unable to repay their long-term liabilities as they become due, then the company will face a solvency crisis.
List of non-current liabilities:
Contingent liabilities are liabilities that may occur depending on the outcome of a future event. Therefore, contingent liabilities are potential liabilities. For example, when a company is facing a lawsuit of $100,000, the company would face a liability if the lawsuit proves successful. However, if the lawsuit is not successful, the company would not face a liability. In accounting standards, a contingent liability is only recorded if the liability is probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated.
