Adding Fixed Assets Entry
They are the economic resources owned by the organization that can be measured in terms of accounting. Or they are the property of the organization of material value and future benefit to the organization. Assets are divided into:
The property acquired to use it and not for reselling it, as it is used in carrying out the activities of the organization and its useful life extends to several fiscal years, and its shape often does not change throughout its useful life, such as land, buildings, machines, and cars.
They include cash and other assets that are expected to be converted into cash, sold, or used during the fiscal year such as cash current assets, short-term investments, customers, notes receivables, inventory, prepaid expenses, and accrued revenues.
Property or rights that do not have a tangible existence or physical entity but are of value or benefit to the organization such as goodwill and patent rights.
Notice: Asset accounts are always considered (debit) when they are increased and if they are decreased, they become (credit).
