Configuring the asset register settings

You can specify Asset Register settings for financial year details and how to calculate taxation and accounting depreciation for each client separately. These settings are saved for subsequent years.

You can only edit the Asset Register's financial year details in the year it was created so make sure these details are correct before rolling forward to a new year.

The examples in this help use an AU system. The same information applies for NZ, but you may see or use some different options or details.

To specify Asset Register settings
  1. Click the Client Accounting > Asset tab.

  2. On the TASKS bar, click Register settings.

  3. In the Register Settings window, from the Start month drop-down, select the appropriate start of the financial year.
    The end month is automatically calculated 11 months from the start month. 

    You can only change the financial year details if no asset year has been created (the asset register status is blank).

  4. Select the checkbox to indicate the depreciation calculation:

    • Taxation only

    • Accounting only

    • Accounting and Taxation

  5. If you wish to integrate the Asset Register with the supported general ledger, tick the Integrate with the supported general ledger checkbox.

    If you previously used the Asset Register in without general ledger integration, the Integrate with the supported general ledger checkbox is not available.

  6. Select what entries will be generated from depreciation calculations. If the type of depreciation calculation selected is:

    Depreciation calculationthen...
    Taxation onlyDepreciation calculations will generate taxation entries automatically
    Accounting onlyDepreciation calculations will generate accounting entries automatically
    Accounting and Taxation

    Select from either Accounting or Taxation depreciation journals you want posted back into Trial balance view or Workpaper Period.

  7. Click OK. Changes are saved to the Asset Register and the Register Settings window closes.
