Long-term debts are financial obligations and loans lasting longer than one year. A company must report long-term debt on its balance sheet with its date of maturity and interest rate.
Bonds and debt obligations with maturities greater than one year are examples of long-term debt. Other types of securities, including short-term notes and commercial papers usually are not long-term debt because their maturities typically are shorter than one year.
