source line adjustments. it must be unique and not in the range of numbers reserved for automatic asset Page 4 of 132 . When you add an asset. If you enter an asset number. you can enter the asset number. adjustments. and to perform transactions. or leave the field blank to use automatic asset numbering. Asset Number An asset number uniquely identifies each asset. such as retirements. Assets Details Asset Descriptive Details This section describes selected fields on the Asset Details window. and transfers.Overview of Assets Workbench Use the Assets Workbench windows to add new assets to the system.
Description Use list of values to choose a standard description you defined in the QuickCodes window. book. and date placed in service. or you can enter any non-numeric value. if you use them. All assets in a category share the same asset cost accounts and depreciation accounts for each depreciation book. it must be unique. Asset Category Oracle Assets defaults depreciation rules based on the category. For example.numbering. use the tag number to track asset barcodes. Tag Number If you enter a tag number. A tag number uniquely identifies each asset. You can enter any number that is less than the number in the Starting Asset Number field in the System Controls window. or enter your own. Page 5 of 132 .
Use units to group together identical assets. When you specify a category for a new asset. For example. not yet in use and not yet depreciating. For Page 6 of 132 . but the square footage for buildings. Asset Key The asset key allows you to group assets or identify groups of assets quickly. you might want to track the license number for automobiles. Oracle Assets begins depreciating it. For example. rather it can be used to track a group of assets in a different way than the asset category.Category Descriptive Flexfield Descriptive flexfields allow you to collect and store additional information about your assets. Expensed: Items that do NOT depreciate. Oracle Assets tracks expensed items. CIP (Construction-In-Process): Unfinished assets being built. even if the Depreciate check box in the Books and Mass Additions Prepare windows is checked for that asset. you can enter your information in a descriptive flexfield. Once you capitalize a CIP asset. It does not have financial impact. For each asset category. you can set up a descriptive flexfield to prompt you for additional information based on the asset category you enter. o o Units The number of units represents the number of components included as part of an asset. use an asset key to group assets by project. Oracle Assets does not depreciate expensed assets. Charged to an asset cost clearing account. Charged to a construction-in-process clearing account. the entire cost is charged in a single period to an expense account. Capitalized assets usually depreciate. but does not create journal entries for them. Asset Type Valid asset types are: o Capitalized: Assets included on the company balance sheet.
a computer. Lease Information You can enter lease information only for an asset assigned to a leased asset category. You must define the lessor as a valid supplier in the Suppliers window. You can specify a rule in the Asset Categories window by which Oracle Assets defaults the life for a subcomponent asset based on the category and the parent asset life. If you are adding a leasehold improvement. Oracle Assets does not automatically perform the same transaction on a subcomponent asset when you perform it on the parent asset. If you are adding an asset. while still automatically grouping them to their parent asset.example. Parent Asset You can separately track and manage detachable asset components. Use the Parent Asset Transactions Report to review the transactions that you have performed on parent assets during a period. or enter a different number of units. add the parent asset before the subcomponent. To properly default the subcomponent life. you might add an asset that is composed of ten separate but identical chairs. If the depreciation method is not Calculated and if it is not already set up for the subcomponent life rule default. and define leases in the Lease Details window. Warranty Number You can set up and track manufacturer and supplier warranties online. Page 7 of 132 . You must set up the depreciation method for the subcomponent asset life before you can use the method for that life. Oracle Assets sets up the depreciation method for you. enter the asset number of the leased asset. For example. Use the list of values or enter a previously defined warranty number to assign the asset to the coinciding warranty. Enter the parent asset to which your asset belongs if you are adding a subcomponent asset. If your subcomponent asset uses a depreciation method of type Calculated. Each warranty has a unique warranty number. Oracle Assets uses the asset category default life. a monitor can be tracked as a subcomponent of its parent asset. The parent asset must be in the same corporate book. accept the default value of one.
If you are entering a leasehold improvement and you completed the Parent Asset field in the Asset Details window. Ownership You can track Owned and Leased assets. Use this check box to track that it is not in use. When you set up categories. You cannot provide separate lease information for the leasehold improvement. You can enter lease information only if you assign the asset to a leased asset category. Page 8 of 132 . a computer in storage still depreciates because it becomes obsolete over time whether or not it is in use. it indicates that this asset will be included when you run the Physical Inventory comparison. It indicates whether the asset is in use. Choosing the value Leased from the Ownership list does not automatically allow you to enter lease information. In Use The In Use check box is for your reference only. For example.before you can attach a lease to an asset you are adding in the Asset Details window. In Physical Inventory When you check the In Physical Inventory check box. Oracle Assets displays the related lease information from the parent asset. you define whether assets in a particular category should be included in physical inventory. You can use the In Physical Inventory check box in the Asset Details window to override the default.
For example. Oracle Assets defaults financial information from the asset category. book. Page 9 of 132 . You can choose whether to amortize or expense the adjustment. zero. Book An asset can belong to any number of depreciation books. so you can run depreciation for each book on a different schedule. Cost Current Cost The current cost can be positive. You can specify for which general ledger set of books a depreciation book creates journal entries. You can also change the cost of a CIP asset manually by entering non-invoiced items or transferring invoice lines between assets in the Source Lines window. You can change financial and depreciation information for an asset in a book. and date placed in service. but must belong to only one corporate depreciation book. The asset can also have different financial information in each book. Each book can have independent accounts. Oracle Assets automatically updates the cost to the sum of the invoice line costs after you add invoice lines to a CIP asset using the Mass Additions process. You must assign a new asset to a corporate depreciation book before you can assign it to any tax books. an independent calendar. you can make the asset cost in your tax book different from the cost in your financial reporting book. or negative.Depreciation Rules (Books) This section describes selected fields on the Books window. Oracle Assets defaults a cost of zero for construction-in-process (CIP) assets and you cannot change it. The depreciation books are independent. You can only assign the asset to a book for which you defined the asset category. and independent depreciation rules.
Oracle Assets uses that amount as the accumulated depreciation as of the last depreciation run date. If you enter zero accumulated depreciation. Page 10 of 132 . If you specify a depreciation cost ceiling. and if the recoverable cost is greater than that ceiling. If you have bonus reserve. Oracle Assets does not update the original cost. It is the current cost less the salvage value less the Investment Tax Credit basis reduction amount.If this is a capitalized leased asset. if any. If you enter too much accumulated depreciation. Oracle Assets calculates the accumulated depreciation and the bonus reserve. Oracle Assets uses the cost ceiling instead. the amount should be added to the accumulated depreciation and is no longer tracked as bonus reserve. After the first period. Recoverable Cost The recoverable cost is the portion of the current cost that can be depreciated. the asset becomes fully reserved before the end of its life. If you enter too little accumulated depreciation. and you previously calculated the cost to capitalize for the lease in the Lease Payments window and you have not override the result of the capitalization test. Original Cost Oracle Assets displays the original cost of the asset and updates it if you make a cost adjustment in the period you added the asset. and you can change it. Depreciation Amounts Depreciation You normally enter zero accumulated depreciation for new capitalized assets. You can have a different accumulated depreciation for each depreciation book. Oracle Assets automatically enters the Cost to Capitalize amount in the Current Cost field. If you enter a value other than zero. If you are adding an asset that you have already depreciated. or let Oracle Assets calculate it for you. Oracle Assets adjusts depreciation to the correct amount for the current fiscal year. you can enter the accumulated depreciation as of the last depreciation run date for this book. based on the date placed in service.
You can. For Oracle Assets to recognize an asset as fully reserved when you add it. however. enter the asset with zero accumulated depreciation. Allow ceilings for a tax book in the Book Controls window. If the asset is placed in service in the current fiscal year. You cannot change the accumulated depreciation after the period in which you added the asset. Valid depreciation ceiling types are: o Expense Ceilings: Limit the annual depreciation expense that Oracle Assets takes on an asset. You cannot enter year-to-date or life-to-date depreciation when you add a units of production asset. You cannot claim an Investment Tax Credit on an asset unless it is using a life-based depreciation method. Depreciation Ceiling You can enter a ceiling only for assets in tax depreciation books for which you allow ceilings. Assign ITC to an asset in a tax book in the Investment Tax Credits window. and enter the total life-to-date production as production for the current period to catch up depreciation. the accumulated depreciation amount and the year-to-date depreciation amount must be the same. for the year-to-date depreciation. enter an accumulated depreciation amount equal to the recoverable cost. Instead. and you cannot enter a salvage value for credit (negative cost) assets. Cost Ceilings: Limit the recoverable cost used to calculate annual depreciation expense. Investment Tax Credit The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) check box displays whether you claimed an ITC on an asset. Page 11 of 132 . o Salvage Value The salvage value cannot exceed the asset cost. Allow ITC for a tax book in the Book Controls window and the category in the Asset Categories window. change the depreciation taken for prior fiscal years in your tax books using the Tax Reserve Adjustments window.Enter the amount of depreciation taken in the current fiscal year. if any.
Depreciation Method The depreciation method you choose determines the way in which Oracle Assets spreads the cost of the asset over the time it is in use.Net Book Value The net book value is defined as: Net Book Value = Current Cost . The table below illustrates information related to the depreciation types: Page 12 of 132 . units of Production. Table. For example. Revaluation Reserve If you are adding an asset. Oracle Assets updates the revaluation reserve when you perform revaluations. You specify default depreciation rules for a category and book in the Asset Categories window. Oracle Assets provides additional fields so you can enter related depreciation information. You can use predefined Calculated. if you enter a Calculated or Table depreciation method. Oracle Assets uses the revaluation ceiling instead. you must also enter a life for the asset. enter the revaluation reserve. or define your own in the Methods window. Revaluation Reserve = Existing Revaluation Reserve + Change in Net Book Value due to current revaluation Revaluation Ceiling If you try to revalue the asset cost above the ceiling. You cannot update the revaluation reserve after the period you added the asset. you must enter a unit of measure and capacity. for a units of production depreciation method. if any. or Flat-rate type methods. Depending on the type of depreciation method you enter in the Books window.Total Reserve (Accumulated Depreciation + Bonus Reserve) Revaluation Amounts You can only enter revaluation amounts if you allow revaluation in the Book Controls window. In contrast. After that.
If the calendar date is after the current open period.display only Calculated and table methods must be set up with the same number of prorate periods per year as the prorate calendar for the book. Accept this date. If you change the date placed in service after depreciation has been processed for an asset. Date Placed In Service If the current date is in the current open period.display only Units of Production Life-to-Date Production . the default date is the last day of the open period. The depreciation method must already be defined for the life you enter. You can change the date placed in service at any time. Oracle Assets treats it as a financial adjustment. the default date placed in service is the calendar date you enter the asset. If the calendar date is before the current open period. You cannot enter a date placed in service before the oldest date placed in service you specified in the System Controls window. or enter a different date placed in service in the current accounting period or any prior period. the default date is the first day of the open period. and the accumulated depreciation is recalculated accordingly.

Oracle Assets automatically updates this field to the date you specify when you capitalize the asset using the Capitalize CIP Assets window. you can choose to amortize the net book value over the remaining life of the asset. You can change the default date to another date in the current period or a previous period. It uses this date to determine how much depreciation to take during the first and last years of asset life.The asset category. If you enter a date placed in service in a prior period and zero accumulated depreciation. Page 14 of 132 . Oracle Assets uses the Amortization Start Date to spread the remaining recoverable cost over the remaining useful life of the asset. The date placed in service for CIP assets is for your reference only. Prorate Convention and Prorate Date Oracle Assets uses the prorate convention to determine how much depreciation to take in the first and last years of asset life. Oracle Assets uses the Amortization Start Date to determine the amount of catchup depreciation to take in the current open period. The remaining depreciation is spread over the remaining life of the asset. and expenses the catchup depreciation in the current period. When adding assets with depreciation reserve. and date placed in service determine which default depreciation rules Oracle Assets uses. The amortization start date defaults according to the rules described for the Date Placed in Service. Oracle Assets automatically calculates catchup depreciation when you run depreciation. This can only be performed in the period of addition. the date placed in service determines which rules to use. book. Amortization Start Date When you choose to amortize an adjustment. Oracle Assets determines the prorate date from the date placed in service and the prorate convention. If the asset category you entered is set up for more than one date placed in service range for this book.
Assignments Assign assets to employees. When you run a transaction report or create journal entries for a tax book. the depreciation program automatically adjusts the accumulated depreciation and year-to-date depreciation amounts for the affected general ledger accounts. and locations. has no financial impact because Oracle Assets uses them solely for property tax and responsibility reporting. since Oracle Assets creates journal entries for depreciation expense to the general ledger using the account. expense accounts. however. You can automatically assign distributions to an asset by choosing a predefined Distribution Set. When you back-date a transfer. The following are some of the fields that appear on the Assignments window: Transfer Date You can enter a date in the current or a prior accounting period. You can transfer an asset between employees. You also cannot enter a date that is after the last day of the current accounting period. Changing the location or employee information. or before the date of the last transaction you performed on the asset. general ledger depreciation expense accounts. Oracle Assets uses the current assignment information from the associated corporate book. You cannot back-date transfers before the start of your current fiscal year. Changing the expense account has a financial impact. and locations. Page 15 of 132 . You can share your assets among several assignment lines.
enter a positive number. and unit adjustments) the Units to Assign starts at the number of units added. You can enter whole or fractional units. Page 16 of 132 . on a new line. or adjusted. but you can transfer units into as many lines as you want. The Units to Assign value automatically updates to reflect the assignment you enter or update. You can only view the distribution for a merged parent or a merged child one at a time. You can transfer units out of only one assignment line in a single transaction. Oracle Assets automatically enters the distributions for you. It must be equal to zero before you can save your work. Total Units Oracle Assets displays the total of the number of units for the asset. You can transfer units between existing assignment lines or to a new assignment line. To transfer units out of a assignment. enter a negative number. The number of units that you enter tells the depreciation program what fraction of depreciation expense to charge to that account. A distribution set allows you to automatically assign a predefined set of one or more distributions to an asset. When you choose a distribution set. Unit Change The Units field displays the number of units assigned to that assignment. unless you check the Show Merged Distributions check box.Distribution Set You can use the Distribution Set poplist to choose a predefined distribution set for an asset. retired. Show Merged Distributions (Mass Additions only) The Show Merged Distributions check box appears in the Assignments window for a mass addition line only. Units to Assign Oracle Assets displays the number of units you must assign. For a two-sided transfer. the Units to Assign starts at zero. For one-sided transfers (additions. partial unit retirements. To transfer units into a assignment.
Employee Assign assets to the owner or person responsible for that asset. You must enter a valid. Expense Account Assign assets to depreciation expense accounts. current employee you created in the Enter Person window. Page 17 of 132 . Oracle Assets charges depreciation expense to the asset using the expense account and runs Responsibility Reports using the cost center information. Oracle Assets uses location information for Property Tax reports. Location Enter the physical location of the asset.
You also can transfer lines between assets. If the source of the line is Oracle Projects. or delete a line for a CIP asset. Each source line that came from another system through Mass Additions may include the following information: o o o o o o o o o Invoice Number Line Description Supplier Purchase Order Number Source Batch Cost Project Number Task Number You change invoice information for a line using the Source Lines window only if you manually added the source line. For example. adjust the cost of an existing line. including sources such as invoice lines from your accounts payable system and capital assets from Oracle Projects. you can manually add a line.Source Lines You can track information about where assets came from. choose the Project Details button to view detail project information for the line in the Asset Line Page 18 of 132 . You cannot change invoice information if the line came from another system through Mass Additions.
Detail Additions Use the Detail Additions process to manually add complex assets which the QuickAdditions process does not handle: o Assets that have a salvage value o o o Assets with more than one assignment Assets with more than one source line Assets to which the category default depreciation rules do not apply Page 19 of 132 . Asset Setup Processes (Additions) You can use one of the following processes to enter new assets: QuickAdditions Use the QuickAdditions process to quickly enter ordinary assets when you must enter them manually. and the date placed in service. Since a CIP asset is not yet in use. and the remaining asset information defaults from the asset category. or you can track detailed information about your CIP assets in Oracle Projects. You can track CIP assets in Oracle Assets.Construction-in-Process (CIP) Assets A construction-in-process (CIP) asset is an asset you construct over a period of time. You can enter minimal information in the QuickAdditions window. you can place it in service and begin depreciating it. it does not depreciate. book. you do not need to track them in Oracle Assets. If you use Oracle Projects to track CIP assets. You create and maintain your CIP assets as you spend money for raw materials and labor to construct them. When you finish building the CIP asset.

To reclassify an asset to another category: 1. correct data entry errors. Page 35 of 132 . query by asset number or tag number since they are unique values. or when consolidating categories. Find the asset you want to reclassify. Oracle Assets creates journal entries to transfer the cost and accumulated depreciation to the asset cost and accumulated depreciation accounts of the new asset category.
even if inheriting depreciation rules fails. You cannot reclassify an asset in a prior period. If you attempt to reclassify assets to the same category (for example. the assets will not be reclassified and will not inherit depreciation rules. assets will not inherit the depreciation rules of the new category. However. Oracle Assets first reclassifies the assets (changes the assets from one category to another). if reclassification fails (assets are not changed to the new category). 5. the asset will not be reclassified in any of the books to which it belongs. In addition to reclassifying assets to a new category. Enter the new category. Choose Open. Reclassifying a Group of Assets You can reclassify a group of assets using the Mass Reclassifications window. Reclassification Reclassification is done at the asset level. if you have chosen to have the reclassified assets inherit the depreciation rules of the new category. Oracle Assets reclassifies assets to a new category. you have a group of assets assigned to category PC.

Unplanned depreciation is a feature used primarily to comply with special depreciation accounting rules in Germany and the Netherlands. However, you also can use this feature to handle unusual accounting situations in which you need to adjust the net book value and accumulated depreciation amounts for an asset without affecting its cost. You can enter unplanned depreciation amounts by asset and book for any current period during the useful life of an asset. You can enter unplanned depreciation for an asset in both the corporate and/or tax books. When you enter unplanned depreciation, Oracle Assets immediately updates the year-to-date and life-to-date depreciation, and the net book value of the asset. The unplanned depreciation expense you enter must not exceed the current net book value (cost - salvage value - accumulated depreciation) of the asset. If necessary, you can enter multiple unplanned depreciation amounts, both positive and negative, in a single period, provided that the net amount does not exceed the current net book value of the asset. Thus, it is possible to enter unplanned amounts that back out depreciation taken in prior periods, including previously entered unplanned depreciation amounts. When you enter unplanned depreciation expense, you can choose in which period to begin amortization of the asset's remaining net book value. You can begin amortization in the current or a subsequent period, or you can choose not to amortize the remaining net book value. Note that if you do not amortize the unplanned depreciation or make an amortized adjustment in a subsequent period, the asset will be fully reserved before the end of the useful life. If you choose to amortize in a subsequent period, simply enter an unplanned depreciation amount of zero, and check the Amortize from Current Period check box. Oracle Assets will begin to amortize the remaining net book value as of that period. Oracle Assets uses the unplanned depreciation amount, in addition to regular depreciation, to calculate depreciation for the period in which you entered the unplanned depreciation. When you create journal entries for the general ledger, Oracle Assets posts the expense due to unplanned depreciation to the account you selected when you entered the unplanned depreciation for the asset.
Page 63 of 132
Enable Function Security You can enable or disable unplanned depreciation entry by responsibility if you want to allow or restrict user access to this function. View Unplanned Depreciation Amounts You can use the Financial Information inquiry windows to view the effects of the unplanned depreciation amounts you enter. Oracle Assets includes unplanned depreciation amounts in the current and prior period accumulated depreciation, year-to-date depreciation, and net book value amounts of the asset. The View Depreciation History window includes unplanned depreciation amounts in the depreciation expense per period for each asset and book. Note that unplanned depreciation amounts appear as ADJUSTMENT transactions. If you want to view unplanned depreciation amounts separately, use the Transaction Detail window. In this window, you can view the unplanned depreciation type and the unplanned depreciation expense account for each unplanned amount. Restrictions You cannot enter unplanned depreciation for assets shared between balancing segments. In other words, you cannot allocate unplanned depreciation amounts to specific distributions of an asset. Oracle Assets posts the unplanned depreciation expense only to the depreciation expense account you enter in the Unplanned Depreciation window. You cannot enter unplanned depreciation for assets depreciating under table-based methods. If you need to enter unplanned depreciation for an asset depreciating under a table-based method, you must first change the depreciation method to a method that is not table-based. You cannot make expensed adjustments to assets for which you have previously entered unplanned depreciation and have since amortized the amount. You may, however, perform expensed adjustments to the asset until you choose to amortize the unplanned depreciation amount. In addition, you cannot perform prior period retirements to assets having unplanned depreciation amounts. In addition, you

A unit adjustment is similar to a transfer, since you must update assignment information when you change the number of units for an asset. For example, you place the same $4,000 asset in service with two units assigned to cost center 100. In Year 2, Quarter 3, you realize the asset actually has four units, two of which belong to cost center 200. Cost Center 100 Dr. Cr. Accumulated Depreciation 750.00 Asset Cost 2,000.00

Note: If all units remain in the original cost center, Oracle Assets does not create any journal entries.
Example: You reclassify an asset from office equipment to computers in Year 1, Quarter 3. The asset cost is $4,000, the life is 4 years, and you are using straight-line depreciation. When you reclassify an asset in a period after the period you entered it, Oracle Assets creates journal entries to transfer the cost and accumulated depreciation to the asset and accumulated depreciation accounts of the new asset category. This occurs when you create journal entries for your general ledger. Oracle Assets also changes the depreciation expense account to the default depreciation expense account for the new category, but does not adjust for prior period expense.

Oracle Assets also creates journal entries to clear the proceeds of sale and cost of removal. Depreciation for Retirements The retirement convention. If the depreciation method takes depreciation in the year of retirement. Oracle Assets creates multiple journal entries for these accounts. and computes the gain or loss using the resulting net book value. If you enter distinct gain and loss accounts for each component of the gain/loss amount. Oracle Assets reverses the year-to-date depreciation of the asset. and depreciation method control how much depreciation Oracle Assets takes when you retire an asset. and revaluation reserve retired. date retired. You can enter different sets of retirement accounts for retirements that result in a gain and retirements that result in a loss. Oracle Assets creates journal entries for the retirement accounts you set up in the Book Controls window. Oracle Assets creates journal entries for either the gain or the loss accounts for the following components: proceeds of sale. cost of removal. For partial retirements. In this case. Oracle Assets creates journal entries for your general ledger for each component of the gain/loss amount. net book value retired. when you perform a full retirement.Journal Entries for Retirements and Reinstatements When you retire an asset and create journal entries for that period. Page 104 of 132 . Oracle Assets uses your retirement convention to determine whether the asset is eligible for additional depreciation in that year or whether some of that year's depreciation must be reversed. Oracle Assets reverses the appropriate fraction of the year-to-date depreciation and computes the gain or loss using the appropriate fraction of the resulting net book value. Oracle Assets reverses the year-to-date depreciation if the asset's depreciation method does not depreciate it in the year of retirement.
This additional depreciation is the depreciation that would have been taken if you had not retired the asset. Oracle Assets depreciates the portion of the asset you did not retire based on the method you use. unless you perform it in the same period that you retired the asset. date retired. Oracle Assets depreciates the asset's cost remaining after a partial retirement. Page 105 of 132 .When you perform a partial retirement. Oracle Assets usually calculates some additional depreciation expense in the period in which you perform the reinstatement. This occurs if the retirement convention caused some additional depreciation when you retired the asset. a reinstatement results in a reversal of depreciation. If your depreciation method multiplies a flat-rate by the cost. Then Oracle Assets reverses the extra depreciation that it took at retirement. Oracle Assets depreciates the remaining fraction of the asset's net book value as of the beginning of the fiscal year. For assets that use a diminishing value method. Depreciation for Reinstatements The retirement convention. Sometimes. and period in which you reinstate an asset control how much depreciation Oracle Assets calculates when you reinstate an asset. and then you reinstate the asset before the retirement prorate date. When you reinstate a retired asset. and waits until the appropriate accounting periods to take it. however.

You can also use SQL*Loader to import physical inventory data from a non-Oracle file system. Page 116 of 132 . When you finish entering physical inventory data into Oracle Assets.About Physical Inventory The Physical Inventory feature in Oracle Assets assists you in comparing and reconciling your physical inventory data. You load your physical inventory data into Oracle Assets using the Physical Inventory Entries window. or you can use the Record Physical Inventory process in the Applications Desktop Integrator (ADI). you must first take physical inventory of your assets. which allows you to import data from an Excel spreadsheet.
