Depreciation correction after transfer

58 Views Last edit Aug 03, 2020 at 08:28 AM 2 rev

Hi all,

We have a number of assets that were created under the incorrect class resulting in the asset life being 5 years instead of 12.

the assets were set up at various times over the last two years so there have already been several months worth of depreciation posted based on the life of 5 years.

I have created new assets under the correct class and transferred the values, but I was expecting the system to post a correction to account for the overstated depreciation.

Instead, what appears to be happening is that the system is now posting zero depreciation for the new assets, presumably until we get to a month where we catch up with the accumulated depreciation and it begins to charge again.

Is there a way to get the system to post the appropriate credit to the depreciation to bring it in-line?

Many thanks
