Asset Capitalization

We are planning on purchasing a significant amount of large metal trays that will be used with our manufacturing equipment. Individually, they only cost about $300, but in total will put us back about $180K - they all will be purchased at the same time.

Can we capitalize these as assets or do we have to expense them on the P&L?

What is their useful life?

Yes I think you have enough assets.

I'd say 30 years of useful life - they are metal trays that won't ever really deteriorate.

I think you have enough assets. However nobody can guess previous what will happen in future.
