Once you've made all your modifications to this year's asset register as required, you can submit journals to the workpaper period.
Before you submit journals, it's a good idea to run your asset schedule reports first to make sure all your balances are correct.
If you're using Client Accounting Workpapers, you can use the Assets - GL reconciliation workpaper to compare the balances in Assets to the balance in the underlying ledger.
From within the Assets period, click the Reports menu and choose the report you want to view.
The following reports are available:
|Report type||Report Name||Description|
|Accounting & Taxation|
Contains a list of depreciation details for both Accounting and Taxation purposes for all assets (for Australia, this includes pooled assets).
The details of the pool will be displayed only if one of the balances is not zero
|Additions and disposals||Contains a list of assets that have been acquired or disposed during the financial year. Depending on your register settings, this report will contain both Accounting and Taxation amounts, Taxation only amounts or Accounting only amounts.|

Asset journals are submitted for posting based on selecting either “Taxation” or “Accounting” in the Register settings window. If you select “Taxation”, then taxation journals will be submitted. If you select “Accounting”, then accounting journals are submitted.
From within the Assets period, click Submit journals on the TASKS bar.
In the window Submit assets journals for posting? click Yes. The journals then appear in the workpaper period, ready to be posted.
In the window Asset journals have been submitted successfully, click OK.
If you receive the error "Asset journal entries cannot be submitted without an account code...", make sure you've selected an account for all Integrated accounts in the Maintain Control Groups window.
If you have any assets with a private use %, check that you've also specified a Private Use balance sheet account in the asset details.
Check out Error: "Asset journal entries cannot be submitted without account code..." for more information.
To post journals to the underlying ledger, open the workpaper period and from the TASKS bar, click Post Journals and accounts.
If you make a change in the asset register after submitting journals, you can click Submit Journals again to resubmit journals with new entries. This will update the existing journal in the workpaper period.
