Property, Plant, and Equipment
(PPE) Register
What PPE (property, plant, and equipment) refers to are long-term, tangible properties or assets owned by the company that is essential in the running of the business operations.

These assets typically last more than one year, and they are not easily liquidated. These include assets that were purchased before the business was inseminated, as well as the assets purchased along the way as the business grew and more people were hired.

The assets range from items of very low value to high-end properties that cost the company millions to acquire. These assets include buildings, land, furniture, vehicles, computers, and machines. They are considered fixed assets as they are expected to help a business generate revenue over a long period of time, and they are not expected to be sold in the near foreseeable future.

Accounting for PPE
In accounting, a company’s PPE is recorded on the balance sheet at historical cost, which refers to the accumulated amount spent during the initial purchase. The total is broken down into:
  • Purchase price
  • Processing fees
  • Transaction fees
  • Discounts
  • Rebates
  • Other fees spent to remodel, renovate, refurbish, or redecorate the asset in order to serve its intended purpose in the business

Every month, the business needs to adjust the value of PPE as all fixed assets generally see a depreciation of value with time. Buildings and land are the general exceptions when it comes to this rule, as they will normally appreciate in value instead of depreciating. As such, an accountant or outsource accounting partner will measure the balance of the PPE account after every reporting period and update the balance sheet accordingly.
As a business grows and expands, new assets will be purchased, be it new laptops, cars, or new machinery to increase production. The new asset and its historical cost will be added to the PPE summary report, and similarly, if an asset is sold or liquidated, it will be removed from the summary.
Image
In a nutshell, a PPE register or report gives the company a summary of all its assets at a glance with details like the date the assets were acquired, how much the initial cost was, and the reduced value due to depreciation.
