Analysis of Property, Plant and Equipment

Difficulty: Advanced


Property, Plant and Equipment Accounting Policy

Property and equipment are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the shorter of the estimated useful lives of the respective assets, generally up to 30 years, or the expected lease term for leasehold improvements, if applicable. Leased buildings are capitalized and included in property and equipment when Netflix was involved in the construction funding and did not meet the “sale-leaseback” criteria.

The relative age is a useful measure of whether the company’s fixed asset base is old or new. Newer assets are likely to be more efficient. Netflix Inc.’s average age of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2016 to 2017 and from 2017 to 2018.
