Asset Management FAQs

What are business assets?

Business assets comprise anything of value that a company owns, produces or otherwise benefits from. Examples of company assets include cash and stocks to inventory, cars, property, office equipment, and computer hardware.

What is asset management?

Asset management (sometimes also referred to as ‘asset monitoring’ or ‘equipment tracking’) can refer to the management of funds, i.e. financial assets such as stocks and investments. In this context, asset management is designed to help the company grow their financial portfolio.

For example, asset management can also refer to the management of tangible company equipment and belongings, computing equipment and vehicles. This type of asset management tracks the location of assets as well as information pertaining to its condition and data such as warranty and price.

What are fixed assets?

A fixed asset, or noncurrent asset, is a tangible asset that a company uses in the production or delivery of goods or services and expects to own for longer than a year.

Examples of fixed assets include:

  • Machinery
  • Property
  • Land
  • Vehicles

Fixed assets are often referred to as “property, plant and equipment” (PP&E).

What are current assets?

The opposite of a fixed asset is a current asset. A current asset is something that is expected to be consumed quickly. Cash, for instance, is an example of a current asset. Company inventory is also a type of current asset.

Do I have to keep track of assets?

Every business needs to invest in asset monitoring. Effective tracking of assets ensures businesses know exactly what they currently own as well as its location, condition and value.

Failure to track assets effectively opens up the potential for criminal activity such as theft and fraud, making it more difficult to locate lost or misplaced inventory.

Can employees working from home claim tax relief for job-related expenses?

Staff may be able to claim tax relief for additional household costs, such as gas and electricity, metered water, as well as both business phone calls if they are contracted to work at home regularly. This relief will be £6 a week from 6 April 2020 (for previous tax years, the rate is £4 a week).
