long-term debt

Technically, that portion of any debt that will come due after 1 year from the current date. A newly made 30-year mortgage would have 1 year of payments posted to shortterm debt on the accounting books of the borrower, and 29 years posted to long-term debt. In common parlance, though, it is simply any debt with a maturity greater than 1 year from the time of making.
