Change in useful life of fixed asset (as per Companies Act 2013)

Hi,

we need to capture the depreciation charge on the fixed assets ,whose useful has been already  exhausted as per the New Useful Life Concept (as per Companies Act 2013) .

Can we capture the remaining book value to a different GL A/C  for tracking the charge.

Eg: If a fixed asset of Rs 15000 ,which we were depreciating with a useful life of 15 years but  as per the new useful lifeconcept it should be depreciated within 10 years only and now we are in the 12th year .We have to make the book value (Rs.4000) of the asset as zero (Rs. 0).

Can we capture this depreciation charge in a separate GL and what are the implications of doing so

Thanks in advance

    Hi

    I think this is one kind of revaluation due to change of rules...so you can process it under "Revaluation of assets"

    Please do necessary setting in Asset accounting and try

    Hi Prashanth,

    You can post it by ABSO/AB01/FB01 with transaction type 101/105. The accounting entry will be:

    Expenses A/c Dr 4000

    Asset A/c Cr 4000

    Regards,
