Entering in depreciation information about your assets is an important feature for you to utilize. ManagerPlus allows you to track the depreciation information on an asset to help you manage them appropriately.
This process cannot be done from a mobile device, but through your desktop application.
Click on the "Assets" tab on the main ribbon of ManagerPlus.
Create a new asset or open an already existing asset from your desktop computer.
If creating a new asset, all required fields must be filled in and then saved before you can proceed to Step 3. If you need help on how to create a new asset, see article, “Creating an Asset Manually”.
Click on the “Depreciation” tab.
Enter in the appropriate information into the fields provided. Below are the definitions and explanations of each of the fields in the Depreciation section of an Asset.
ManagerPlus calculate the Depreciation per Month, the Accumulated Depreciation, and the current Net Value of the asset using the Straight-Line Depreciation Method. Accumulated Depreciation and Net Value are updated on a monthly basis.
