\nYes. the are counted as a non-financial asset.A prepaid expense is a considered an asset because it entitles the company to receive a benefit in the future. They are normall…y classified as a current assets because usually the benefits will be obtained within a year or a business cycle; whichever is longer.
Prepaid rent is the asset of compan as it is paid already but notdue yet so it is current asset and shown in current assets underbalance sheet.
No. A prepaid asset is an asset that May be Tangible or Intangible, but is not yet 'in service'. When it is acquired and in service, is when it may be determined if it is Tang…ible or Intangible.
Intangible assets are assets that are not physical in nature. Intoday's marketplace, they include company's brand name, prepaidpension, goodwill, and company patents, among ot…hers.
insurance not yet paid
If prepaid expanses represents current year expenses then it is current assets in fact, prepaid expenses are current assets. why? this is because you had paid in advance for… the item you want to purhase. eg, if u renting a building which cost u $100000, but u paid $200000, then that additional paid amount is your asset. what is the definition of assets? well, there are 3 component that makes them up. by understanding these 3 component, u can more or less classify items u are not sure. first component, it brings future economic benefits, second you have control over it, and third, it rises from a past event. hopes this help :-)
Yes any expense paid in advance is current assets as the benefit ofthat amount is required to be taken in future.
Yes, any expense paid in advance iscurrent asset as the actual benefit will be taken in future timeperiod.
Prepaid insurance premia is to be shown in the Profit & Loss Account, and not as an asset in the Balance Sheet.
Prepaid expenses are an asset because you (as the company) is owedsomething. When you are owed something by another then you list itas an asset until it's paid. Investopedia …also explains it similar to this: While prepaid expenses are initially recorded as assets, theirvalue is expensed over time as the benefit is received onto theincome statement, because unlike conventional expenses, thebusiness will receive something of value in the near future.
Yes. All prepaid items go in current assets until they are used and transferred to the profit and loss.
Prepaid insurance is that amount which is paid in advance forfuture insurance so until actual insurance facility is availed bycompany it is an asset of company and if it is fo…r short term orwill be availed in current fiscal year then it is current assetotherwise a fixed asset, if some portion is usable in currentfiscal year then only that portion will be current asset andremaining will be fixed asset.
