What are Fixed Assets?

Fixed assets are tangible, long-term assets that your company owns such as property, buildings and equipment that are not consumed or sold during the normal course of business. These are economic resources that cannot be readily converted into cash and are crucial for your business to function. Thorough documentation of a company’s fixed assets is necessary to understand both the financial health and value of your business.

How Does ProcessPro Global Handle Fixed Assets?

ProcessPro Global allows your company to forecast tax and cash-flow implications of assets before you acquire them, and track valuation and depreciation once you make a capital commitment. The following are ways the fully-integrated Global system can assist your business:

  • Analysis of leasing vs buying to arrive at the most efficient depreciation strategy
  • Easy review of asset identification, acquisition, valuation, depreciation and disposal information
  • Modify the solution to meet your tax assessment and reporting needs
  • Track actual and scheduled service maintenance dates with description of work performed for assets
  • Access to up-to-date tax law changes using IRS-supplied depreciation tables, as well as MACRS, ACRS, straight line and other recovery methods
