Asset Purchase

 

WHEN AN ASSET IS PURCHASED THE BALANCE OF MONEY/LOAN ACCOUNT USED TO FINANCE THE PURCHASE OF THE ASSET IS REDUCED AND THE VALUE OF ASSETS INCREASED. 
 
THE ASSET ACCOUNT TAKES ACCOUNT OF ITEMS OF HIGH VALUE WHICH ARE TRANSFERABLE INTO CASH.  SO THE POSITION OF THE COMPANY OR THE VALUE OF THE COMPANY HAS NOT CHANGED IT IS MERELY THAT MONEY HAS CHANGED FROM A BANK BALANCE INTO AN ACTUAL ITEM OF HIGH WORTH (I.E. A FIXED ASSET).
 
 
FIXED ASSET ACCOUNTS AVAILABLE WITHIN THESAURUS ACCOUNTS ARE:
 
 
  • CARS
  • VANS & TRUCKS
  • FIXTURES & FITTINGS
  • PLANT & MACHINERY
  • OFFICE EQUIPMENT
  • OTHER FIXED ASSETS
 
 

PURCHASE OF AN ASSET

 
When an asset is purchased, an invoice is issued by the supplier of that asset.  Post the purchase invoice the same way as any other purchase invoice selecting the relevant asset account from the list.
