Scrapping them off the books for tax purposes, in all
used to have to physically destroy our COMBOARDs before we could write
them off. If we were ever audited and happened to have product that
was logged as scrap, but hadn't been, we would have been in a world
of hurt from either the County Tax officials or perhaps the IRS.
It sucks, but if you scrap hardware, you have to render it useless.
IMHO, all you need to do is ensure there remains no evidence to
the contrary... admittedly, it might get very difficult to have
10,000 units disappear with a wink and a handshake...
