Question and answer
What is included in the cost basis of a long-lived asset? Explain for at least two types of such assets
Both accounting models have similar recognition criteria, requiring that costs be included in the cost of the asset if future economic bene?ts are probable and can be reliably measured. [ Neither model allows the capitalization of start-up costs, general administrative and overhead costs or regular maintenance. However, both US GAAP and IFRS require that the costs of dismantling an asset and
restoring its site (that is, the costs of asset retirement under FAS 143Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations or IAS 37) be included in the cost of the asset. Both models require a provision for asset retirement costs to be recorded when there is a legal obligation, although IFRS requires provisions in other circumstances as well. Read more: ]
