KBKG strives to be a thought leader in the areas we service and we’re proud so many CPAs rely upon the tools we’ve created. For those applying the new Tangible Property Repair Regulations, the first step in a proper Repair vs. Capitalization analysis is to identify and understand the Unit of Property (UOP). For real property, this involves understanding the differences between "building systems", their "major components", and "incidental" building components.

The KBKG UOP & Major Component Chart for Buildings was created to help you identify building systems and typical "major components" in real estate assets. Replacing a major component is a capital expenditure, while replacing an incidental component is generally expensed. (KBKG Repairs vs. Capitalization Decision Tree - Page 2)
