Fixed Asset - Directly Attributable Cost

My question is related to Fixed Asset accounting, when you purchased an Asset you need to capitalize all directly attributable cost necessary to bring the asset to its intended use such as shipping cost, duties and installation cost. Is there a way in Quick Book Enterprise to merge these direct attributable cost to the total cost of a fixed asset like the concept of Landed Cost? The Landed Cost concept works only in Inventory but not in Fixed Asset,

@OliverSiguancia - Yes, you just record them all to the same asset account and assign an asset #.

Repairs and maintenance of fixed assets are generally not added to the cost of the asset since they are considered "period costs" so they are expensed in the current period. This is better anyway since then you get to count as tax deductible expense in the current year.
