Property, Plant and Equipment Accounting Policy

Property, plant and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Depreciation is recognized over the estimated useful lives of the assets using the straight-line method. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the term of the lease or the estimated useful lives of the improvements. The estimated useful lives of assets are primarily as follows:

Data processing equipment 2 to 5 years
Buildings 20 to 40 years
Furniture and fixtures 4 to 7 years

ADP has obligations under various facilities and equipment leases. ADP assesses whether these arrangements meet the criteria for capital leases by determining whether the agreement transfers ownership of the asset, whether the lease includes a bargain purchase option, whether the lease term is for greater than 75% of the asset's useful life, or whether the minimum lease payments exceed 90% of the leased equipment's fair market value. All of ADP's leases are classified as operating leases. Total expense under these operating lease agreements was approximately $234.5 million, $201.7 million, and $201.8 million in fiscal 2017, 2016, and 2015, respectively.
