i am mentioning general concept regarding this issue,for specific answer please elaborate the nature of leased asset.
Renovations would go into a general ledger account called leasehold improvements (if the property is leased) or building improvements (if the property is owned). On a balance sheet, they would both be classified as property, plant and equipment. For as long as these renovations remain in existence (i.e. property is not sold or abandoned), they will remain on the balance sheet.
