Commercial Renovation

What are Leasehold Improvements?

Essentially, leasehold improvements include any remodeling or other alterations and enhancements made to a leased property. For accounting purposes, any kind of tenant improvement done during the duration of the lease is recorded as an asset, along with an equivalent liability. It is amortized over the remaining term of the lease or the life of the renovations, whichever is shorter. When the lease is terminated, any improvements that have been carried out typically become the property of the owner without any obligation or cost.

The property owner also benefits from the renovation becauseRead More »
