The way in which fixed assets are handled must correspond with both international accounting standards and the accounting legislation in each country or region.

The fixed assets functionality in Dynamics 365 Finance incorporates many of these standards and rules.

You can set up and enter acquisition information for fixed assets, and then manage them by depreciating them and setting a capitalization threshold to determine depreciation. Additionally, you can calculate adjustments to the fixed assets and dispose of them. When you use general ledger together with fixed assets, you can view the current value of all fixed assets.
