A transaction to create a disassembly of a fixed asset is similar to the transaction used to create a sales transaction, but its account configuration is determined by the posting profile setup. When you record a disassembly transaction, transactions are created to record the return of the remaining materials to the warehouse.

Set up posting profiles for a dismantled fixed asset transaction

  1. Click Fixed assets> Setup> Posting profiles.

  2. Press CTRL+N to create a new line.

  3. Click Options> Leaving (dismantlement)to open the Dismantlementform.

  4. Press CTRL+N to create a new posting profile for the dismantled fixed asset transaction.

  5. In the Post valuefield, configure the following accounts to use to write off the fixed asset balance value:

    • Booked depreciation- The accrued depreciation of the fixed asset.

    • Booked cost- The cost of the components returned to the warehouse.

    • Gain/loss- Any profit or loss resulting from the disassembly of the fixed asset.

  6. Press CTRL+S or close the form.

Create a transaction for a dismantled fixed asset

Before you record a disposal (disassembly) transaction for the fixed asset, specify the materials that will remain after dismantling. These items must already exist in the Itemsform in Inventory management. If they do not exist, you must create them.
