Booking existing assets in FA register after moving to BC

Posted on by
Hello All,
 
We recently moved to Business Central from another accounting software. We moved only the final balances for each G/L account. Now we are looking into setting up the FA register for all our assets but how can this be done without acquiring a new asset? If I create an asset (in the FA register) on the remaining amount, then it will overstate the G/L balances that we moved to BC. 
 
Is there any workaround to create existing assets?
 
Any help would be much appreciated!
 
Thanks!

    just add that perform step 3 when you validate the previous steps have been done properly. after turn of the integration button, you will be able to acquire fixed asset and related transactions hitting both subledger and gl. those should be new FA acquired after going alive. 
     
    I would suggest to have your partner do this to ensure success.

    Essentially, you would post the fixed asset values only to the fixed asset subledger, without posting to the GL:
     
    1. In your depreciation book turn off GL integration
    2. Post the fixed asset opening balances using the Fixed Asset Journal, not the Fixed Asset G/L Journal. This will post the balances only to the fixed asset subledger, and not to the GL as well.
    3. In your depreciation book turn on GL integration
