    Equipment (acquisitions over $500 each) per se is not a line expense item on a P&L Statement...it's a journal entry that shows up on other reports. If you are talking about normal everyday parts and service to maintain and upkeep the equipment, then that is an a expense.

    Equipment is depreciated, expenses are not...

    I am talking about the expeneses for the year. So equipment would be an expense for the year. If I bought it in 03, then its an expense.
