  3. Click Add a New Asset Type

  1. Enter the name of the asset type in the Description field
  2. Set a default depreciation schedule for the asset type (recommended).  If you don't wish to set do so, simply leave the settings as they are with the selections set to None.
  • Keep in mind the default method and term/rate can always be changed on an asset-by-asset basis.
  • Entering default depreciation schedules saves time if consistently using the same method and term/rate for an Asset Type.
