Fixed assets, Accounting Basics

Fixed Assets

An additional categorization other than current or long-term is as well used for property. A "fixed asset" is an asset which is planned to be of a lasting nature and which is used by the business to offer the ability to carry out its trade. Instance of "tangible fixed assets" comprise plant & machinery, land & buildings and motor vehicles. "Intangible fixed assets" might include goodwill, patents, trademarks and brands - though they can only be included if they have been "acquired". Savings in other companies which are planned to be held for the long-term can as well be shown under the fixed asset heading.
