Useful Life Assessment Report

By conducting an Useful Life Assessment Report with Setape, you are ensuring that the valuation of your assets will be done correctly and accurately.

What is the useful life assessment report for?

Useful life is the technical and economical lifespan of a depreciable fixed asset, during which it can be expected to contribute to company operations

A technical appraisal report for the useful life of an asset can provide the following information:

  1. Establish a technical life data to be applied in the company’s acquisitions
  2. Assess, based on the technical useful life, what is the remaining depreciation rate of an asset

With this kind of information:

  • a company has subsidies to guide the forecast of investments with maintenance, renovations or replacement of equipment to maintain its best efficiency.
  • It is possible to analyze the depreciation since the revision of the useful lives of the assets directly influences the accounting for the depreciation calculations. Consequently, their costs can be changed, impacting in their economic value.

This report covers both personal properties and real estate, such as: machinery, equipment, industrial facilities, furniture and fixtures, vehicles, buildings, etc.

Valuation reports with the review of useful lives are used as a subsidy for operations to adjust the values ​​of fixed assets (Deemed Cost), valuations for sale, mergers, acquisitions, mergers, auctions, guarantees, liens, property insurance.

What are the benefits of carrying out the useful life assessment?

Within the benefits of a useful life assessment, we can highlight:

– Analysis of physical depreciation where it will be possible to verify if the equipment has already exceeded its useful life, being worn out and producing with high maintenance cost, it must be renovated or replaced.

– Compare the good that is in the company with other market alternatives, which can be technically better for a more advantageous value to the current production good;

The absence of the exact dimension of the useful lives of an asset prevents management decisions from being made based on reliable information.
