Solution-IV® Fixed AssetsSolution-IV® Fixed Assets

Solution-IV Fixed Assets is designed to help you manage your assets and calculate depreciation. You may have as many depreciation calculations on an asset as required for your business. Different calculations might be used for book, federal tax, and state tax purposes.

A variety of reports are available showing you the value of each asset for book, tax, and insurance purposes. Acquisitions and retirements are handled with appropriate postings to General Ledger, if desired. Other reports compare depreciation methods, project depreciation over the life of the asset, and show depreciation taken in prior years.



The parameters give you the ability to customize the system to fit your needs without making costly program changes. These parameters include whether or not to post to General Ledger, the maximum tax credit per year, how to handle comments in inquiry and how to handle declining balance depreciation when the amount drops below the straight line calculation.

Standard Methods

The standard depreciation methods included with Solution-IV Fixed Assets are straight line, double declining balance, 150% declining balance, sum of the years digits, ACRS, MACRS, MACRS with part year conventions, all at purchase, and all at sale. The tables for the standard methods may be modified if necessary to comply with new government regulations.

Custom Methods

Depreciation tables may be created for methods not already included with the package.

Multiple Methods

An unlimited number of depreciation methods may be maintained and calculated for each asset. These may be used for federal tax, state tax, book, or any other requirement.

Asset Information

Standard information about each asset is maintained in the asset masterfile such as description, acquisition and retirement information, serial number, location, responsible party, depreciation methods, depreciated value, insured value, warranties and service contracts, capital lease information, comments and depreciation history.

Asset Inquiry

The asset inquiry function allows quick access to information about an asset. All of the information regarding the asset may be viewed but not modified, with the exception of the comments where access is controlled by the parameters.

Asset Inquiry Screen

Depreciation Inquiry

This inquiry function allows you to enter an asset and depreciation method. It then computes a deprecation schedule for the asset. This may be useful for determining the desired method of depreciation to assign to an asset.

Depreciation Calculation

Depreciation can be calculated for any or all of the depreciation methods you have assigned to an asset. You have the option of selecting ranges of categories, assets and purpose codes for which to calculate depreciation. The calculated depreciation may be overridden if desired.


By entering assets into the system through Acquisition Entry, you have the option of having the acquisition post to General Ledger, as well as print history reports showing the detail of assets purchased between a range of dates.

Similar to acquisitions, retirements may be entered and then shown on a history report at a later date.

The budgeting sub-system allows you to calculate annual depreciation for a range of assets and post it to the budget fields in General Ledger Account Maintenance.
