A long-term asset used in producing or supplying goods or services, renting to others, or administrative purposes. Fixed assets are not intended for sale in the ordinary course of business and are expected to provide economic benefits for more than one reporting period. Examples include machinery, vehicles, land, and buildings. They are recorded on the balance sheet at their purchase cost and then depreciated over their useful life.
