    Hi - I think this site has a better explanation of the entries with an example:

    It states:

    "Asset Disposal – Sales to a Customer: F-92 - With Customer

    Supposed an asset with historical cost $1,000 and accumulated depreciation of $100 is being sold to a customer at a price of $1,100, the posting entries will be as follows:

    Dr. Customer account (A/R) 1,100

    Cr. Revenue for asset disposal 1,100-

    Cr. Fixed asset – acquisition cost 1,000-

    Dr. Accumulated depreciation 100

    Dr. Clearing account for asset disposal 1,100

    Cr. Gain/loss of fixed asset disposal 200-

    The posting date of the retirement posting will also be updated into the field "deactivation date" in the asset master as the retirement date."
