However, for R&D expenses, those are expensed as incurred: U.S. GAAP for R&D SFAS 2, Accounting for Research and Development Cos...

RE: A400M Delivery Schedule

Zeke, I believe you have it backwards. Boeing is subject to US Generally Accepted Standards which require development costs to be expensed when incurred. Airbus is subject to International GAAP which allows the development costs to be expensed over an agreed period of time. This is one of the conten...
