    • Hi Pardeep

      The scooter cannot be shown as an asset because an asset is a resource controlled by an enterprise and capable of generating future economic benefits. Since the asset has expired it’s useful life it is not capable of generating any value hence should not be made to appear in balance sheet.

      • If the asset is still in a working condition , then you can show the value at 5% of the cost and dont take any depreciation on it.
