(JPN) Depreciate and retire a fixed asset with asset retirement obligation [AX 2012]

Updated: February 25, 2014

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

After you set up an asset retirement obligation (ARO) document and attach it to a fixed asset, you can acquire a fixed asset and generate an ARO transaction during the acquisition. You can adjust ARO amounts up or down to calculate interest expenses in case there are changes in the estimated retirement cost for the fixed asset. You can depreciate the fixed asset over the course of its useful life, and then retire the asset.

NoteNote

This topic does not apply to versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 prior to cumulative update 7 for AX 2012 R2.

When you acquire a fixed asset, you can generate an ARO transaction to post the ARO amounts to the ledger during the acquisition. To do this, when you create an acquisition journal for the fixed asset, click Functions > Generate asset retirement obligation transactions on the Journal voucher form. The ARO transactions are created in the Journal voucher form based on the ARO document that you attached to the fixed asset. You can then post the ARO transactions by clicking Post. For more information, see 日志凭证的固定资产 (窗体).

Follow the steps in this topic to generate an ARO proposal for an interest expense, retire a fixed asset, and view ARO settlement amounts.
