Property, plant, and equipment (PP&E) are non-current, tangible assets shown on most businesses' balance sheets. PP&E items play a crucial part in entities' operations because they are an essential resource for producing goods, supplying services, and generating revenues. The accurate measurement of PP&E items allows entities to fairly reflect their financial position and profitability; hence, they can assure current stakeholders, attract new investors, plan and analyze entities' operations, and manage their assets efficiently. Nowadays, the importance of accurately measuring PP&E items' value is even more vital for decision-makers due to the global economic threats and uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the other political instabilities.

This course explains and illustrates the PP&E items recognition and measurement process step-by-step, including initial recognition, subsequent measurement, depreciation methods, impairment test, fair value measurement, valuation techniques, revaluation model under IFRS, disposals, change in use, and measuring PP&E efficiency.

This course depends on practical cases and examples that simplify the theory behind the US GAAP standard ASC 360 Property, Plant, and Equipment and the IFRS standard IAS 16 Property, Plant, and Equipment and point out the main differences between them.

Course Key Concepts: Fixed assets, Property, Plant, Equipment, Impairment, Fair value measurement, ASC 360, IAS 16, Valuation, Revaluation model, Depreciation.

This was a great course, there aren't too many courses strictly on PP&E so was very useful. The course went over calculating costs of assets, the different depreciation methods, impairment tests, etc.

Good course on PP&E, and probably more advanced for most if your day to day activities aren't focused on PP&E.
