How to reverse a Fixed Asset disposal sale transaction

Fixed asset has two types of disposal transaction disposal sale, or disposal scrap. In this post I will focus on the disposal sale, this is accounting treatment in case of the company decided to sell a building, which is a fixed asset. The asset disposal sale transaction is executed from a customer free text invoice. In some scenarios the accountant may want to reverse the posted disposal sale transaction.

The following diagram illustrate a logical overview of the business process of fixed asset disposal sale to a customer. The cycle starts by acquiring a fixed asset in the fixed assets sub module, and this will result in the fixed asset status as open asset. Then move to accounts receivable sub module to execute the disposal sale transaction, this transaction is executed by the free text invoice. After posting the free text invoice the system generates two actions: –

  • The first in AR submodule by posting a customer invoice.
  • The second in fixed assets submodule by post disposal sale transaction and set status of fixed asset as sold.

The reversal of disposal sale is done from the accounts receivable submodule by using the reverse transaction functionality in the customer transactions form. This transaction has two effects, the first is to reverse the customer invoice, and the second to reverse the asset disposal entry in the fixed assets submodule. The asset status set to open as well.
