The Fixed Assets section of the Accounting module allows users to track fixed assets in R365. Fixed assets can be any physical item that resides at a location long-term. The Assets page is used to track these items. 

For example, a location purchased a grill for $2000. The manager records the purchase of the grill by creating an asset record. The Placed In Service Date is also recorded, and the asset is marked as Active. The manager accesses the deprecation form to retire the old grill after the new one is installed.

Fixed assets can be automatically deprecated after a set amount of time based on configured classes and categories. 

If Fixed Assets is not available in the left navigation menu, please contact your R365 Sales Rep or R365 Support to enable the Fixed Assets.

Asset Depreciation: Reviewing & Posting Depreciation

The Fixed Asset Module will automatically calculate Depreciation for all of your Depreciating Fixed Assets for the duration of their useful lives. Before the close of each Period, your Fixed Asset Manager can use the Fixed Asset Depreciation review screen to preview the Depreciation that will post for each active Asset for the Period.
