Does Asset.Guru support partial disposals?

Good news!  Asset.Guru can support partial disposals with the Revalue function. 

This gives excellent control of how much the remaining asset is worth along with the opportunity to adjust the depreciation rate of the remainder. 

This treatment is available in all versions of Asset.Guru.

Example Scenario: (current date for this scenario is 5 MAY 2023)

An asset was initially activated as a trailer/mower combo and has been depreciating as a single asset record. The mower gets sold, but the trailer is still in great shape and will continue to be used by the company.

Asset Name:  1.2T single axel trailer + 183cm "Work-Goat" mower

Purchase Date and Depreciation Start Date:  12 JUN 2019

Purchase Price: 16,000

Depreciation Schedule (monthly averaging): Straight Line - Term: 10yr

Current Value (30 APR 2023): 9,733.33

Sale Price of mower: 7,000

Sale Date: 1 MAY 2023


1.) Revalue the original asset record by decreasing its value by the amount that the mower was sold for.

Valuation amount: 9,733.33 - 7,000 = 2,733.33
