Do they own the building or are they leasing it?  Please give some additional info about what you're having a problem with, nobody has time to keep guessing what your question is.

They leasing from their Holding company. I think I will depreciate for term of the lease.

If they dont own it, you dont depreciate it.

So they leased it as is, or they put the money into the improvements to make it a laser tag facility?

"yes, they add laser tag facility"

You are being asked to provide more details. Not "facility." Buildings; interior changes; parking lot and landscape; signage; equipment (furniture and fixtures). Depreciation applies to ownership.

To get specific help from the peers that volunteer to be helpful, you need to give them specifics.

You need to understand: What sort of improvements were made, when, for how much, and how were they treated for tax reporting in the year placed in service and/or prior years? How does the lease term compare to the IRS useful life regulations for each type of asset?

"It's lease improvement they did can be depreciated for term of the lease"

If you already think this, then what part is your question?
