(1) Gross debt in corporate finance is often used as synonym for ‘total debt’, however there might be some differences depending on the version of the total debt. Technically, ‘gross debt’ should include short-term financial liabilities, long-term financial liabilities, accrued interest, liabilities from corporate transactions, and other liabilities that aren’t part of working capital.
(2) Gross debt in personal finance refers to total debts of a person. There is not exact formula for this one but it could also include leasing liabilities as well.
(3) Gross debt in public finance usually means ‘public debt’ which includes total liabilities of the country’s government and all local authorities (state government, municipal and other). Usually it is calculated as percentage in relation to the GDP of the country. Countries with high (more than 80%) debt/GDP ratio may face long term problems.
