Use this form to divide a fixed asset calendar period. Two new periods are created and the original period is deleted.

The start date for the first new period is the start date for the original period. You must enter the start date for the second period in the field.

The ending date for the first period is one day less than the starting date that you enter in the field for the second period. The ending date of the second period is the ending date of the original period.

For example, to divide a period beginning January 1 and ending June 30 into two periods, the first period would have January 1 as the starting date. Enter April 1 as the starting date of the second period. March 31–one day less than what you entered in the field–is the ending date of the first period, and June 30–the original ending date–is the ending date for second period.

You can divide periods to set up periods when your company uses a calendar with periods other than days, months, or years.
