Fixed Asset Module in Dynamics 365 Business Central

The fixed asset module in Dynamics 365 Business Central is highly intuitive, and at the same time very user-friendly. Some of the features you can do with fixed assets include:

  • Being able to project fixed asset depreciation easily when needed with user-friendly reporting
  • Being able to add/manage multiple assets (with differing classes and depreciation setups) that make up a main asset
  • For each asset you can manage maintenance costs as well as the next date of service. This provides visibility on budgeting for fixed assets and deciding whether to replace an asset
  • Ability to link assets to one or more insurance policies, making it easy to manage the annual insurance premiums associated with fixed assets
  • Ability to seamlessly run fixed asset transactions without the need for manual posting to GL
  • Ability to add fixed assets via the purchasing module (ie. via invoice or purchase order)
