Asset classification


Recommended Posts

An auditor is making a mountain out something petty:


Non-profit rents a school building and they paid a plumbing contractor to run new gas and water lines to a room for a kitchen (for cooking classes), then a sink and commercial grade appliances were bought and installed.


How would you classify each asset?

new gas and water lines

Kitchen sink

  • new gas and water lines - structural component of the building

  • stove - tangible personal property
  • refrigerator - tangible personal property

Above answers - for sink is based on that it sounds like this is a new space or with new purpose and no existing sink that was being repaired.  Also, this is assuming that the stove and refrigerator being "commercial grade' may possibly exceed the de minimis threshold. 

I'm sure someone here will come along with another viewpoint.

Thanks Judy.

For some reason I could not edit the post, but I should of added, if it falls under equipment, furniture & fixtures, leasehold improvement etc...

Oh, sorry, I thought that was obvious from my answers. Anyway, cbslee's answer made clear how I would classify each asset.
