# How do you calculate gross fixed assets from net fixed assets?

**In equation form:**

**Net Fixed Assets**Formula =**Gross Fixed Assets**– Accumulated Depreciation.**Net Fixed Assets**Formula= (Total**Fixed Asset**Purchase Price +**capital**improvements) – (Accumulated Depreciation +**Fixed Asset**Liabilities)

Also asked, what is the difference between gross fixed assets and net fixed assets?

That means that even though accumulated depreciation is reflected on the **assets** portion of the balance sheet, it in essence carries a minus sign. Therefore, if **Gross Fixed Assets** are $1,000,000 and Accumulated Depreciation is $200,000, **Net Fixed Assets** would be $800,000.

**Net Fixed Assets is**the purchase price of all

**fixed assets**(Land, buildings, equipment, machinery, vehicles, leasehold improvements) less accumulated Depreciation, i.e. effectively property, plant and equipment after depreciation.

In respect to this, how do you calculate gross investment in fixed assets?

Add the accumulated depreciation to the company's book value of the **asset** to find the **gross investment** in the **asset**. In the **example**, $500,000 plus $200,000 equals a **gross investment** of $700,000.

Identify the **purchases** of all **fixed assets**. Write down the items purchased and amount paid just below the **assets** sold list. Total the amounts paid for all new **fixed assets**. Deduct the amount paid for new **fixed assets** from the **cash** receipts received from sold **fixed assets**.
