The installation expenses for a new machinery will be debited to the “Machinery A/c“. Installation expenses are the expense incurred to bring an asset to a working condition where it can be used. For example, installation charges are incurred on machinery to make it operational. Installation charges will be capitalized along with the cost of machinery. It is so because this expense is concerning the machinery and any expense directly related to an asset should be capitalized, as an asset will be with the business for a longer period of time. This charge will be incurred only once as a part of bringing the machinery to its working condition, and hence it should be capitalized and should be added to the cost of the machine. The whole amount will be shown in the balance sheet on the asset side as a Fixed Asset. This charge will not be shown in Profit and Loss A/c as it reflects all the revenue expenditure incurred in the period. Example: Starbucks purchased a coffee blending machine for the business purpose for $1,00,000. The installation expense incurred on it to make it operational was $20,000. How will Starbucks record this in the Balance Sheet on 31 December? In the Balance Sheet, Starbucks will add the installation expense incurred on the machine to the cost of the machine as it is the cost incurred to make the machine operational for further business use. Hence, the cost of $20,000 will be shown along with the cost of the coffee blending machine ($1,00,000+$20,000=$1,20,000) 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Related Questions What are some examples of deferred revenue expenses?
