Once a disposal date is selected, the user can type the cost value into a cell in the Disposal Value column to assign the cost amount as the disposal value.
Disposal at CWDV
Once a disposal date is selected, the CDWV is populated for the asset at that date. The user can double click on a cell in the Disposal Value column to assign the CDWV amount as the disposal value.
Disposal at $0
Once a disposal date is selected, the user can type a nil value into a cell in the Disposal Value column to assign a $0 cost amount as the disposal value.
Disposal at a pro-rated value
Once a disposal date is selected, select the Auto Assign Disposal Values, untick the Set Disposal Value to CWDV at Disposal Date. Once unticked, users can assign different disposal values for taxation and accounting disposal. If the values differ, the values can be unlinked using the link icon and enter two separate values for disposal.
Once the disposal values have been assigned, select Dispose Assets. Once disposed, assets can be viewed by selecting the advanced filter to Show all assets for all years.
Note: Once assets are disposed, a disposal journal is not automatically created in the platform. Users can run an Assets report and raise the relevant journals as required.
