Investopedia explains 'Noncurrent Liabilities'


Investors are interested in a company's noncurrent liabilities because they want to see that it does not have too much debt relative to its cash flow.

The other category of liability that companies incur is called a current liability. Current liabilities are those due within the present accounting year, such as accounts payable, customer advances, taxes payable and the payments due that year on a long-term loan.
