I just researched this a bit and according to GAAP, certain development costs can be capitalized and amortized as assets, while others must be expensed as they are incurred. From what I gather, preliminary costs in the planning stages and operating costs after implementation are treated as expenses. However, the costs to purchase a domain name (though hosting costs, if through a 3rd party provider, are recurring expenses), costs of software, hardware, code and application development can be treated as assets and amortized with straight-line depreciation. I hope this helps.

Hi John ,
Can you help me to explain why that cost belong to Asset not Expense because I think it is Cost for Website developing so it belongs to Operating Cost
