Expenses when incurred for the development of any property and which cannot be conveniently added to the value of such property should be capitalized under this head and written off over the period during which the benefit from such development will accrue to the business. Examples may be expenses incurred in grading and preparing the soil for plantations, overhead removal cost for collieries and mines, etc. These expenses should be verified with reference to the budgets, sanction of the appropriate authority, technical report, if any, and the bills for actual expenditure incurred. It should also be ensured that appropriate write off has been made against these assets, keeping in view the period of benefit or the exploitation, as the case may be.
