Composition of Certain Financial Statement Items
Accounts receivable at the end of both fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017 included approximately $960 million related to the short payment in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 of royalties reported by and deemed collectible from Apple’s contract manufacturers. This same amount was recorded in customer-related liabilities (in other current liabilities) for Apple, since we do not have the contractual right to offset these amounts.
Depreciation and amortization expense related to property, plant and equipment for fiscal 2018, 2017 and 2016 was $776 million, $684 million and $624 million, respectively. The gross book values of property under capital leases included in buildings and improvements were negligible at September 30, 2018 and September 24, 2017.

Amortization expense related to these intangible assets was $785 million, $777 million and $804 million for fiscal 2018, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Amortization expense related to these intangible assets is expected to be $733 million, $630 million, $517 million, $418 million and $285 million for each of the five years from fiscal 2019 through 2023, respectively, and $372 million thereafter.
Customer incentives and other customer-related liabilities substantially consist of amounts payable to customers for incentive and other arrangements, including volume-related and other pricing rebates and cost reimbursements for marketing and other activities involving certain of our products and technologies.
