4.1. Recalculation - Acquisition cost method

If the purchase price method is used in the calculation of fixed assets, discount increases the cost and the purchase price remains the same.

Recalculation „Change“ sum on fixed asset card is added to

  • In cell Depreciation minus „Change“
  • In cell Current value plus „Change“
  • Fixed asset is written down to their recoverable value if the asset's recoverable value is less than its book value.
  • Asset write-downs are posted as an expense in the reporting period.
  • The reversal of the write-down is posted as fixed asset write-down loss reduction in the profit and loss statement.


The transaction is created according to the accounts on the class of the fixed asset.

  • Transaction type – INV_HIND
  • Number – transaction number
  • Date - time of recalculation
  • Comment - text field
  • D – Amort account – 551130 (minus Change) 5833,10
  • C – Depreciation account – 125309 (minus Change) 5833,10

Objects, project, client, customer are added – as on the depreciation transaction. Valid split of depreciation is added by proportion, if proportion is used.

Example: write - down using acquisition cost method

Fixed asset before recalculation:

Fixed asset card after write-down:

Write-down transaction:

Write-down transaction with calculation of depreciation proportion:

4.2. Partial write-off - Acquisition cost method

Fixed asset card before partial write-off:

Choose operation “Partial write-off” and enter the remaining amount of purchase price to the recalculation cell.

For example: 6,000 euros will be written off from a 10,000 euro equipment, then the recalculated purchase price will be 4,000 euros.

:!: Different calculation will be in the cell Change compared to the write-up and write-down.

* Discount % will be in cell Change
* Discount % calculation (Recalculation / Acquisition cost) * 100% - 100% 
* Transaction is created as a write-off transaction multiplied by Change %.

For example calculation 4000/10000*100%-100%=-60%

Partial write-off transaction:

Partial write-off transaction with depreciation proportion:

Fixed asset card after partial write-off:

  • Write-off acquisition cost is added to the Value corrections div on fixed asset card.
