Just make the entries as if you are purchasing the new assets. Ex : For polishing of existing table : Table A/c Dr. To Cash/Bank (Being amount paid for polishing of table)

Dear Kapil I don't feel polishing of table should be capitalised. its more of a repair and maintenance. if some tables are replaced with new tables then only new tables should be captialised. and any alteration in building structure during renovation should be capitalised to building. any renovation in the nature of repair should be debited to repairs. shivani

In my view the renovation expenses accounting will be governed by para 12 of AS 10, which explicitly states that improvement and repairs expenses can be capitalised only when such expenses either increases the future benefits from existing assets beyond its previously assessed standard performance or such expenses are addition or extension, which has separate identity and is capable of being used after the existing asset is disposed off.

All other improvement expenses will be charged to P&L.

So one has to evaluate each expenses on parameter of AS 10 to determine whether such expesnes can be capitalised or need to be charged to P&L

I have just added to your reply, in order to make it more elaborative.

Further reference to standard will help one to understand the logic behind capitalising expenses. 

Hope this has added value to discussion.
