Manage your fixed assets like never before

Thanks to several key improvements to the Enhanced Fixed Assets module, you can track and organise all your fixed assets more effectively, ensuring you’re always at the top of your game.

We’ve improved the following:

  • Asset Depreciation. Added an option to export the “Report Only” version of the report to Excel.
  • Asset Disposal. Added a comments tab to the Asset Disposal program to allow additional information to be entered and printed on the invoice such as “no warranty implied or given.”
  • Document Store. The existing document type “FASS” used for fixed assets now allows storage of documents against the enhanced fixed assets module.
  • Goods Received Date. Control is now available to set the goods received date in the Order Entry/GRN program. This date controls the depreciation start date for a new asset.
  • Improved Reporting. The Asset List and Accumulated Asset List now have options to print for a range of asset categories.

Added a new “Hire Purchase Report” to account for the assets set with an HP agreement.


Access a Payment Practices Report

The Payment Practices Report available on the Purchase Ledger menu now accounts for the additional information required by the guidance to reporting on payment practices and performance, published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

According to the guidance, if on its last two balance sheet dates, a business exceeds two or all the thresholds for qualifying as a medium-sized company under the Companies Act 2006, it needs to report on its supplier payment practices twice a year, including:

  • average days taken to pay invoices (from date of receipt)
  • % of payments made <30 days, 31-60 days, >60 days
  • % of payments not paid within agreed terms

The Payment Practices Report compiles all this information based on the required six-month date range.
