Fixed Assets

Fixed assets are large ticket purchases that have an extended utilization with life. They are not typically sold in the due course of business and as such they are allocated via depreciation to the income statement.

The Definition of Fixed Assets

Any tangible item not consumed within one accounting cycle (typically a year) and providing long term utility is referred to as a Fixed Asset. Traditional images include manufacturing equipment, tools, transportation vehicles, buildings and utility related systems (sewage systems, power grids, power plants and dams). In accounting, these assets are recorded to the balance sheet as ‘Fixed Assets’.
