Assets register is where all your assets are listed for a client. You can choose what columns are displayed asset register, calculation methods, etc. Changes you make to the asset register settings impact the depreciation calculation and entries generated for the current year. These changes flow through to later years.
You can go back to the previous years to make add or edit assets in that financial year. MYOB Practice will calculate the correct opening written down value for the subsequent years.
You can post the depreciation calculation entries as either Taxation or Accounting journals.

An asset year is a financial year for your practice. There is no roll-forward process. If you're working with multiple asset years and make a change to an earlier year, the changes automatically flow through to subsequent years.
Click the Display drop-down to select the assets you want to display.
Allocated assets are already part of your asset register.
Unallocated assets are potential new purchases that are not allocated to your asset register yet.
Locking prevents accidental changes to an asset. This prevents a re-calculation of depreciation values for the current year and subsequent years.
If you lock the asset register for the current year, we'll lock all prior years.
If you unlock the asset register for the current year, we'll unlock all subsequent years.
Click the Years drop-down to select the year and then click Lock year or Unlock year.
