How is petty cash reported on the financial statements?

The Petty Cash account and its balance could be listed separately as one of the first assets in the current asset section of the balance sheet. This is likely the case at smaller companies.

At larger companies, the balance in the Petty Cash account is often combined with the balances in the other cash accounts and the total of the cash accounts will be reported as Cash or as Cash and Cash Equivalents. You will find Cash and Cash Equivalents as the first item in the current asset section of the balance sheet.
