Capitalization limit

The capitalization limit is the amount paid for an asset, above which an entity records it as a long-term asset. If an entity pays less than the capitalization limit for an asset, it charges the asset to expense in the period incurred. This limit is imposed in order to reduce the record keeping associated with long-term assets.
