Property, Plant and Equipment Accounting Policy

Depreciation and Amortization

For financial reporting purposes, TJX provides for depreciation and amortization of property using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Buildings are depreciated over 33 years. Leasehold costs and improvements are generally amortized over their useful life or the committed lease term (typically 10 years), whichever is shorter. Furniture, fixtures and equipment are depreciated over 3 to 10 years. Depreciation and amortization expense for property was $727.2 million in fiscal 2018, $664.5 million in fiscal 2017 and $622.0 million in fiscal 2016. TJX had no property held under capital leases during fiscal 2018, 2017, or 2016. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Significant costs incurred for internally developed software are capitalized and amortized over 3 to 15 years. Upon retirement or sale, the cost of disposed assets and the related accumulated depreciation are eliminated and any gain or loss is included in income. Pre-opening costs, including rent, are expensed as incurred.

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. TJX Cos. Inc.’s average age of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2016 to 2017 but then slightly deteriorated from 2017 to 2018.
