Accounting for Capital Assets John recently came into a sum of money from inheritance and is contemplating purchasing a small manufacturing facility in his home town. Not knowing much about running a business, he decided to have lunch with some of the other business men in town. John listened attentively to the discussion around the lunch table which focused on operating assets and the importance of using them efficiently in order to maximize profits. As John reflected on the lunch meeting, he realized that he had some unanswered questions concerning operating assets. John's questions are as follows: 1. What methods are used to allocate the cost of operating assets and how do I know which one to choose for a particular operating asset? 2. How do I determine if I am using my operating assets efficiently to generate a profit? 3. How do I evaluate and determine an appropriate balance between equity and debt financing as I acquire operating assets? As you reflect on John's question, develop an initial post and then respond to the posts of at least two other students.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
