UK GAAP: How is Design fee relating to new office accounted for?

Post by asmaali07 »

Hi All,

We have recently just signed a lease for a new office which we're due to move into starting from Jan 22. As it's a new building, we are fitting out the building ourselves. We will be incurring design fees of circa £50k relating to our future office leasehold additions. We prepare our accounts under FRS 102-1A. How would you account for costs associated with the design of the new office please?

Any help would be greatly associated.


Many thanks,
Asma

Under IFRS, such costs are generally recognised as separate assets - referred to as leasehold improvements
