Term Definition
A tangible asset is an item owned by a business that has a physical presence, such as a piece of equipment or a vehicle.

When an item can be physically seen or felt, it is a tangible asset. Tangible assets add value to a business’s net worth. You might protect your tangible assets with insurance, use them as collateral to secure a loan, or turn them into cash.
