Asset Retirement Obligation (ARO)


Helps organisations maintain compliance with accounting standards that demand companies recognise any ARO liability within the period in which it was incurred. At the time of acquisition or construction, the ARO liability must be accounted for at the present value of the expected asset retirement or remediation costs. This is achieved through adding an asset to the balance sheet that is equivalent in value to the ARO liability which is then depreciated so that the total costs are recognised over time.
