An asset retirement obligation (ARO) is a liability that is associated with the eventual retirement of a fixed asset, such as a legal requirement to return a site to its previous condition.

More Information

The asset retirement obligation feature supports the following functionalities:

  • Discount ARO future cash flows to their present value.

  • Capitalize the corresponding asset retirement cost by adding it to the carrying amount of the corresponding fixed asset, when you initially recognize an ARO liability.

  • Recognize any period-to-period increase in the carrying amount of the ARO liability as an accretion expense. To do this, multiply the beginning liability by inflation rate derived when the liability was first measured.

  • Recognize upward liability revisions as a new liability layer, and discount them.

  • Recognize downward liability revisions by reducing the appropriate liability layer.
