they need to capitalized and then amortized to revenue on systematic basis considering their nature.

I think the above treatment is for preliminary expenditure

Pre operative expenses if of capital nature then shall be added with the cost of the Fixed Asset.

Whereas if the expenses are revenue in nature then charge to P/L A/c.

but if they are incurred prior to commencing the business then these need to be capitalized even if they are revenue in nature. correct me if am wrong. we can't charge them to revenue as the matching concept wud not be met

All Expenses prior to commencing business have to be booked as Pre-Operative Expenses and subsequently has to be allocated on respective  fixed assets in appropriate ratios.

 

Please note all expenses prior incorporation needs to be separately treated as preliminary expenses.

 

Hope this will clarify your doubts.

Expenses that are incurred prior to setting up a business could be Preliminary expenses or Pre-Operative Expenses.  The Pre-Operative expenses have to be capitalized and written off within 5 years as per Sec 35D.  They are to be shown under Miscellaneous Head on the Asset Side.
