    If our customers asked for it, we’d happily add it. But very few of them have asked for a Fixed Asset Register.

    @Duane – fair call – good to hear you’re being responsive ;-)

    Here at e-conomic we find that most small businessmen aren’t interested in dealing with a Fixed Assets register, they’d rather leave it to their accountant. On the other hand, accountants (both in practice and in business) are very interested because it saves them time when dealing with depreciations. So we provide Fixed Assets functionality via the e-conomic Administrator Module, which is the free module we give to accounting practices enabling them to use e-conomic and work with their clients.

    Another reason for targeting this functionality at accountants is that it requires an understanding of balance sheet accounting. This definitely requires accounting knowledge, whereas raising invoices and bookkeeping expenses can be done without having to think like an accountant. That said, we *do* make the Fixed Assets module avaialble to clients if they want it. And it’s still free!

    By the way, the Administrator Module provides many other other capabilities for accountants, all of which are designed to make accounting practices more efficient. It’s a bit off topic to go into detail here, so I won’t!

    Fixed asset software manages and tracks movement of fixed assets and calculates depreciation by whichever method best meets an organization’s needs.

    It seems to me that rebuilding balance sheets is not instead of finance; it is a piece of investing. The resulting low pursuit value causes firms to equip in very low-return projects. Eventually, the growth in possible GDP hastened by this assets should construct asset values to the muzzle where construction sheets are good, and intake returns to a average indicator (which may not be the pre-recession take). Sonorous action should know this flooded expectedness a bit, as finance give be higher than average in the meantime.
