(HUN) Move a fixed asset to an inventory using a fixed asset journal [AX 2012]

Updated: November 16, 2012

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

Normally, the inventory value of a fixed asset is calculated based on the cost of the item at purchase. To comply with Hungarian accounting law, when you move a fixed asset to inventory, the inventory value must be equal to the net book value of the fixed asset.

  1. Click Fixed assets > Journals > Inventory to fixed assets. Click Lines.

  2. In the Fixed asset number field, select the fixed asset.

  3. In the Transaction type field, select Disposal-scrap.


    The cost price is calculated automatically based on the current net book value of the selected asset.

  4. In the Item number field, select the item to move the fixed asset to inventory.

  5. In the Quantity field, select the quantity of the item.


    You must use a negative quantity in the Quantity field.

  6. Click Validate to open the Check journal form.

  7. Click OK to validate the form.

  8. Click Post to post the journal.


    The fixed asset is then disposed off, and a profit or loss transaction, based on the difference between the standard cost of the fixed asset and its current net book value, is automatically generated.
