The Fixed Assets module interrelates with both the Accounts Payable and General Ledger modules. At year end there is a particular focus on ensuring that the register is up to date and that assets have been physically verified. This is an area that the auditors have been paying close attention to in recent years.

Reviewing the Fixed Asset Register

The Fixed Asset Register will be sent out by Central and Research Accounting for the period up to the end of June once Fixed Assets for June is closed. Particular attention should be paid to:

  • Ensuring that all assets listed can be physically verified
  • Nil value assets – are these still in existence and in use?
  • Responsible employees – new starters /leavers?
  • Departmental locations– any relocations/ expansions?
  • Tag numbers – are they recorded and correct?
  • Asset additions and disposals during the 11 months to June
  • Appropriate individual asset descriptions – eg. not as attached”

Confirmation of the fixed asset return should be sent to Central and Research Accounting by 10 August with any amendments detailed.


Update the Fixed Asset module

Departmental users are able to update the following details on the Fixed Asset module:

  • Asset descriptions
