Bonds are simply loans made to an organization. They are a form of debt and appear as liabilities in the organization’s balance sheet.

A bond, also known as a fixed-income security, is a debt instrument created for the purpose of raising capital. They are essentially loan agreements between the bond issuer and an investor, in which the bond issuer is obligated to pay a specified amount of money at specified future dates.
