All these cuttelery items are consumables for the hotel, so these are required to be debited in consumables and are charged totally in the same year of purchase. Although bills relating to last quarter can be inventorised to some extent depending upon the dates on which they are purchased. for eg. if cuttelery is purchased on 31st of march charging the whole amount in the same year will not be appropriate & therefore a proportion can be inventorised and the rest can be charged in the same year of purchase.

I think that it should be classfied under fixed asset under the head cutlery or kitchen items or whatever name is appropriate.

Howver they are not consumables. Consumables are such things which are destroyed or lets say are used up in a process & lose their identity. Here the kitchen items remain intact & dont lose their separate identity.

Also it is not a revenue expenditure as the benefit from such items shall be for more then a year.

Hence it should be classified under "Fixed Assets"

Dear Friends,

I have seen audits of many  star hotels in Chennai. Cutleries and utensils has to be treated as INVENTORY and not FIXED ASSET. The contention of yours that the life of such utensils is more than one years is not practically possible. They will last for just 5 or 6 months.

 

Warm regards

Pals .. cutlery items are to be capitalized. Check out this balance sheet to confirm   www.orchidhotel.com/mumbai_hotels/balance.pdf

As noted by sushmita it will be shown as 'cutlery item' but not under inventory.

Further u can also refer AS-2 for definition of inventory.

(I) As per Accounting Standard 2 : Valuation of Inventories:

 

Inventories are assets:
(a) held for sale in the ordinary course of business;
(b) in the process of production for such sale; or
(c) in the form of materials or supplies to be consumed in the production process or in the rendering of services.

 

The kitchen items are:

(i) not held for sale in the ordinary course of business;

(ii) not in the process of production for such sale; or

(iii) not in the form of materials or supplies to be consumed in the production process or in the rendering of services. (Kitchen items are not consumables as explained in my previous post.)

From above its clearly visible that non of the criterias are fulfilled for kitchen items to fall under inventories. Hence there is no doubt that kitchen items are fixed assets & should be classified in an appropriate head.

 

(II) Regarding useful life of utensils, practically their life is more then 1 year. Such items dont get extinguished like consumables.
