Just joined a new company which has some asset management opportunities. Currently, wwhen the business does an asset retirement or scrapping it encounters the following (let's say mid-year July retirement/scrapping with year and a half depreciation left).
What is taking place with system today is that it generates a "loss and/gain" on asset for the depreciation remaining in 2016. However, it still shows asset value and a depreciation run rate through rest of 2015. Ideally, the company wants to write off all of the asset as of July 2015 (in this example).
