Analysis of Property, Plant and Equipment

Difficulty: Advanced


Property, Plant and Equipment Accounting Policy

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of those assets as follows:

Computers, equipment and software 3 to 9 years
Furniture and fixtures 5 years
Leasehold improvements Shorter of the estimated lease term or 10 years
Building and structural components Average weighted useful life of 32 years
Building - leased facility 27 years
Building improvements 10 years

When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation and amortization are removed from their respective accounts and any loss on such retirement is reflected in operating expenses.
