(BRA) Set up a fixed asset group [AX 2012]

Updated: July 6, 2015

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

Setting up fixed asset groups can help to simplify the setting up of individual fixed assets. These groups also help classify information for reporting.

You can use the same fixed asset group for assets that have the same characteristics. For example, cars or categories of machinery might be in the same asset groups. You can create posting profiles for each fixed asset group, and select ranges of asset groups in inquiries and on reports.

NoteNote

This topic applies only if KB 2839295 and KB 2850595 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 are installed, if cumulative update 6 or later for AX 2012 R2 is installed, or if AX 2012 R3 is installed.

  1. Click Fixed assets > Setup > Fixed asset groups.

  2. Click New to create a fixed asset group. Enter a unique identifier and name.

  3. Click Value models and create the value models that will apply to all the fixed assets that are assigned to the fixed asset group.

    NoteNote

    You must enter a value in the Fixed asset group field when you create a fixed asset. Default values for other fields for the fixed asset are inherited from the fixed asset group. These include the value model and its posting layers and depreciation profiles. In the Fixed asset group/value model form, you can view the posting layer of the value model that is created for the fixed asset group.

  4. Close the Fixed asset group/value model form.

  5. Click Depreciation books and create the depreciation books that will apply to all fixed assets that are assigned to the fixed asset group.

  6. On the General tab in the Fixed asset groups form, select values in the Number sequence code fields, as necessary.

    • If you set up number sequences for the automatic numbering of fixed assets, select the Autonumber fixed assets check box, and select the number sequence for the fixed asset group in the Number sequence code field.

    • If you set up number sequences for the automatic numbering of bar codes, select the Autonumber bar codes check box, and select the number sequence for bar codes in the Bar code number sequence field.

Tip Tip

If the system is set up to post acquisition transactions from Accounts payable, you can set up a capitalization threshold so that assets are depreciated by default if they meet a minimum acquisition amount, and if they were acquired from an Accounts payable invoice. For more information, see About assets acquired through procurement.

Click Fixed assets > Setup > Fixed asset groups.
