What Is the Acquisition Cost?
A measure of how much an asset really costs to acquire.
Why Is it Important?
- Often an asset's true cost is far higher than it would first appear. Without understanding the true cost of a purchase, one can spend far too much - or even become bankrupt.
Formula(s) to Calculate Acquisition Cost
- ACQUISITION COST = PURCHASE PRICE + DIRECT EXPENSES - DEPRECIATION - AMORTIZATION - TAXES - IMPAIRMENTS
- Including indirect costs like training. Once you've bought the asset, using it is another matter entirely.
