Capitalizing software development costs involves recording these expenses as an asset on the balance sheet and amortizing them over the software’s useful life. This method removes expenses from the income statement during the development phase, leading to higher short-term profit or EBITDA. This adjustment results in a gradual impact on financial statements.
