Fixed assets are key items on any company’s balance sheet. As the item ages, it’s known as a depreciating asset and the business takes a deduction on its federal taxes. When the value of the depreciating asset is consumed, its product lifecycle is over, and the company invests in a replacement. This is a recurring cycle, and though it creates tax deductions, recovering the full asset value is often a neglected area with opportunity for improvement.
Currently, tax codes incentivize companies who spend money on fixed assets by allowing them to recognize expenses faster than actual declining value. However, broad financial and tax implications are frequently overlooked.
