Dispose Partial Fixed Assets in NAV

In this blog, I will discuss how to dispose partial fixed assets in NAV.

If you sell or dispose of a part of fixed asset, you need to split the asset prior record the entry if you.
The following describe the process sequence of task to dispose partial asset.

Scenario: You have posted an acquisition cost for one asset in NAV which contains two pieces of laptop and now you want to sell one of the laptop.

Action Task: You need to split an asset into two assets: one asset having an acquisition cost of 50% of the total acquisition and depreciation amount, and the other one also having 50% of the total acquisition and depreciation amount. Then, use the FA reclassification journal to split one asset into two assets and keeping a part of it as the original asset. Follow by disposal fixed asset process.

Create New Fixed Asset

You need create a new asset first before you transfer the acquisition and depreciation from old asset (FA000070) to new asset (FA000110).

1. Create a fixed asset card for a new fixed asset or use the Copy Fixed Asset function for a new fixed asset

2. On Fixed Asset Menu, select Fixed Assets > Fixed Assets > ACTIONS tab > select Copy Fixed Asset
