Hidden Asset

Value that a person or company possesses that does not appear on its balance sheet. One may have a hidden asset due to an accounting convention. For example, a company may be required to depreciate an asset faster than its actual value declines. This results in a higher net worth for the company than would be reflected in its books. A hidden asset is also called a hidden reserve or a hidden value.
