The Manual aims to update the

a. standards, policies, guidelines
and procedures in accounting for
government funds and property;

b. coding structure and accounts;

c. accounting books, registries,

records, forms, reports and
financial statements.
The estimation of the useful life of
the asset is a matter of judgment
based on the experience of the
entity with similar assets. The
agency/entity is in the best position
to estimate the expected useful life
of its PPE.
As a guideline, PPE shall be
depreciated over the following
life spans:
Land Improvements

Over the useful life of the asset to

which the improvement was made
or the useful life of the
improvement if significantly shorter
Infrastructure Assets

20 to 50 years
Buildings and Other Structures

30 to 50 years
Machinery and Equipment

5 to 15 years
Furniture, Fixtures and Books

2 to 15 years
Motor Vehicles

5 to 15 years
Other Property, Plant and

2 to 15 years
Based on the above life spans,
the entity shall prepare the
specific estimated useful life for
each asset based on its
experience on the life of its PPE,
copy furnished the Resident
Auditor and the Government
Accountancy Sector of COA.
The estimated useful life of the
undepreciated portion of a PPE
shall be reviewed on a regular
basis and revised when the
appropriateness of a change can
be clearly demonstrated.
A residual value equivalent to at
least five percent (5%) of the cost
shall be adopted unless a more
appropriate percentage is
determined by the entity based
on its operation subject to the
approval of COA.
Criteria for Recognition of PPE

The cost of an item of PPE shall be

recognized as assets if, and only if:
1. It is probable that the future
economic benefits or service
potential associated with the item
will flow to the entity;
Criteria for Recognition of PPE

2. The cost or fair value of the item

can be measured reliably;

3. Beneficial ownership and control

clearly rest with the government;
Criteria for Recognition of PPE

4. The asset is used to achieve

government objectives; and

5. It meets the capitalization

threshold of P15,000.
Under this recognition principle,
an entity shall evaluate all its PPE
costs at the time they are
incurred. These costs include
cost incurred initially to acquire
or construct an item of PPE and
costs incurred subsequently to
add to, replace part of, or service
the PPE.
Applying the Capitalization
Threshold of P15,000.

The capitalization threshold of

P15,000 represents the minimum
cost of an individual asset
recognized as a PPE on the
Statement of Financial Position.
Applying the Capitalization
Threshold of P15,000.

Items with individual values below

the threshold but which work
together in the form of a group of
network asset whose total value
exceeds the threshold shall be
recognized as part of the primary
PPE. (Example: computer network)
Applying the Capitalization
Threshold of P15,000.
Expenditures incurred on purchasing,
developing, and operating hardware, like
web servers, staging servers, production
servers and internet connections of a
website is accounted for as PPE if the total
value of the primary asset (communications
networks) and these items is within the
threshold of P15,000 and above.
Applying the Capitalization
Threshold of P15,000.

This threshold shall be applied on an

individual asset or per item basis. Each
item within the bulk acquisition with
aggregate or total value of PPE, such as
library books, computer peripherals and
small items of equipment, will need to
meet the capitalization threshold to be
recognized as PPE.
Semi-expendable Property.

Tangible items below the

capitalization threshold of P15,000
shall be accounted as semi-
expendable property. The following
policies apply as follows:
recognized as PPE.
Semi-expendable Property.

a. Semi-expendable property which

were recognized as PPE shall be
reclassified to the affected
b. These tangible items shall be
recognized as expenses upon issue
to the end-user.
Accountability over Semi-
expendable Property.

Inventory Custodian Slip (ICS) shall

be issued to end-user of Semi-
expendable Property to establish
accountability over them.
Accountability over Semi-
expendable Property.

Accountability shall be extinguished

upon return of the item to the
Property and Supply Division/Unit
or in case of loss, upon approval of
the relief from property
Inventory Custodian Slip (ICS)
Accountability over PPE

Based on approved RIS, the Supply

and/or Property Custodian shall prepare
the Property Acknowledgement Receipt
(PAR) to support the issue of property to
end-user. The PAR shall be renewed at
least every three years or every time
there is a change in accountability or
custodianship of the property.
Property Acknowledgment Receipt
Responsibility Center Code
Each NGA shall be assigned a responsibility
center code defined as organization code in
the UACS Manual. For monitoring revenue
and expenses, additional three digit codes for
the agencys major offices/departments shall
be appended to the organization code. The
organization code and the agencys major
offices/departments code shall consist of 15
digits as follows:
