Accounting Treatment of Purchasing "Manager Server"

I purchased Manager Server and host into Linode.

The payment made to Linode is Expense.

But how do I treat Manager Server? Fixed Assets?
Do, I need to depreciate? How?

Manager Server would also be an expense as you are purchasing a service, the provision of accounting software. It wouldn’t be a Fixed Asset as you have only purchased a right to use not a right to own, besides you don’t have anything to sell or dispose of, it just expires.


Yup… and you can’t resell it so it does not fall under fixed asset.

Manager has intangible assets feature. If you owned​ it it would be appropriate to put it under Intangible asset as fixed asset are tangible piece of property.
