# Total Liabilities (Historical)

Live
Total liabilities are the combined debts and obligations that an individual or company owes to outside parties. Everything the company owns is classified as an asset and all amounts the company owes for future obligations are recorded as liabilities.

### How calculated

Assets = Liabilities + Equity

### Example usage

=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT",2021) - Returns the value for the year 2021.
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT",2021,2) - Returns the value for the year 2021 and the calendar quarter 2
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT",2021,3,"TTM") - Returns the value for the year 2021 and trailing twelve months from the calendar quarter
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT","lq") - Returns the value for the last quarter
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT","lq-1") - Returns the value for the last quarter-1
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT","ly") - Returns the value for the last year
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT","ly-1") - Returns the value for the last year - 1
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT","lt") - Returns the value for the last 12 months.
=hf_Total_Liabilities("MSFT","lt-1") - Returns the value for the previous last 12 months.

### Notes

A larger amount of total liabilities is not in-and-of-itself a financial indicator of poor economic quality of an entity. Based on prevailing interest rates available to the company, it may be most favorable for the business to acquire debt assets by incurring liabilities. However, the total liabilities of a business have a direct relationship with the creditworthiness of an entity. In general, if a company has relatively low total liabilities, it may gain favorable interest rates on any new debt it undertakes from lenders, as lower total liabilities lessen the chance of default risk.
