What is Fixed Asset Accounting and Management? In accounting, assets are economic resources or anything of value that is owned by the business and can be measured in monetary terms. Assets help in generating revenue for the business.
No business- whether service or manufacturing concern- can operate without ownership of assets. A manufacturing plant will need machineries like mixers, centrifuges, generators, forklift, and such. A coffee shop would need coffee grinders, blenders, ovens and toasters.
For an IT firm computer software are necessary assets. A well-functioning hospital would need beds, patient monitors, defibrillators, infusion pumps, etc. In short, any business imaginable would need an asset of some kind or another to perform its basic operations, incur sales, generate revenue and ultimately survive in the industry.
Assets can be classified into various categories; however, most popular classification is done on the basis of duration held, current assets and fixed assets. Current assets include items that are either cash or can be converted into cash within a year. Examples of current assets are cash inventory, debtors, etc. On the other hand, fixed assets are of permanent nature.
Fixed assets are acquired into business with a view that they’ll benefit the firm for many years to come and generally have life for more than a year. Assets are valuable and create value for the business. Businesses dedicate a huge amount of capital to acquiring and maintaining fixed assets.
It becomes vital to keep a precise track of all assets and to manage them in a manner that they’ll generate best possible returns. Fixed Asset accounting keeps a proper account of all fixed assets in business. This allows the management to get a fair and accurate standing of financial statements.
Fixed asset accounting guides towards rightful posting, treatment and valuation of fixed assets in the books of account. Fixed asset management is a much broader term that aims at minimising risks and maximising the returns associated with fixed assets of the business by ensuring its judicious use.
What will be the criteria for defining fixed assets? How will the purchase of fixed assets be recorded in the books of business? How will these assets be capitalized? What manner of depreciation will be applied to the assets? What will be the procedure for the valuation of fixed assets?
How will organizational responsibilities be established for managers in fixed asset management? These are some technical questions that might prove difficult for the management to work out if they are not mindful of various specifics involved in the handling of fixed assets.
Fixed asset accounting is a subset of financial accounting but in recent years has emerged as a specialized area of its own as its importance is being recognized by the accounting fraternity.
Investing vigorously in fixed assets won’t translate into success if the business doesn’t acknowledge the best practices to manage it. Therefore, it becomes significant for managers to be well informed of the subject matter.
