Budgeted Assets in Dynamics 365 Business Central, Part 2

In my prior article about the “Budgeted Asset”, I showed how you could post projected Acquisition Costs for the “Budgeted Asset” without impacting the General Ledger.

Posting those planned Acquisition Costs for “Budgeted Assets” allows you to include Fixed Assets you plan to purchase throughout the year in your capital expenditures analysis with the Fixed Asset Projected Value report.

Planned Disposals

But projecting your asset valuation for the next month or next year is not just about additions. To accurately project your future asset valuations, you must include planned disposals, and yes, Business Central allows you to plan your disposals.

To use this functionality, you must use the Personalize tool to add two hidden fields to the FA Depreciation Books Subform (page 5666).

For this example, I am only going update the Company Depreciation Book. But if you are using Multiple Depreciation Books with different deprecation methods, you could add Dates and Projected Proceeds to all the Depreciation Books.

Below the “Projected Disposal Date” and the amount for the “Projected Proceeds on Disposal” have been updated.
