Fixed Assets

The following is a checklist of steps to close your current year and prepare the system for the new year. If you need detailed instructions on any of the steps below, please contact us at 901-382-1634. The year-end routine can be run at a separate time for each fixed asset book or it can be run for all books at the same time. However, this routine must be completed before running any fixed assets processing for the new year.
