Methodology of fixed capital formation

10.32 Gross fixed capital formation is measured by the total value of a producer’s acquisitions, less disposals, of fixed assets during the accounting period plus certain specified expenditure on services that adds to the value of nonproduced assets. In order to ensure that the coverage of gross fixed capital formation is precisely defined, it is necessary first to define what does and what does not constitute a fixed asset and what activities are treated as adding to the value of non-produced assets.
