Repairs to Assets

Since the line demarcating repairs from renewals is slender, usually it is not a simple matter to determine the amount of the expenditure, if any, included as charges for repairs, which should be considered as that incurred for renewal of an asset and added to its cost. It may sometimes be possible to determine this on a consideration of the nature of repairs carried out. The proportion of the charges
which had the effect of increasing the value of an asset or enhancing its capacity or life, should be treated as capital expenditure. Where, however, it is not possible to form an opinion accurately on the basis of evidence as regards the nature of repairs, a certificate from the engineer under whose supervision the repairs were carried out, confirming the classification of expenditure should be obtained.
