Given the high level of investment in capital assets, it is crucial to maintain accurate records of your balance sheet items. Your asset register will provide valuable insight into the value of each individual asset. In the event that an asset becomes undervalued, it may be necessary to record its fair value.

This can have negative consequences such as a damaged credit rating, higher interest costs, and a restriction on capital. Our team of accountants can assist you in ensuring accurate and up-to-date asset records, mitigating these risks and positioning your business for long-term success.
