    Hi NDingankar22,

    If you use a standard fixed asset report that does not directly refer to the main accounts but rather the fixed assets and their groups then there should not be an impact on this report. This might be different if you designed something yourself that refers to your main accounts.

    Future transactions should be ok once you changed the fixed asset posting profile setup but you might sight a change/shift/jump in your monthly P&L statements where suddenly the transactions that were previously posted on a single account are then split.

    The most tricky thing you have to look out for is related to scrap and sale transactions because these transactions will - depending on your setup - reverse prior postings. This might result in 'strange' vouchers that might need some extra explanation in your financial reporting packages. I would recommend that you do a couple of tests in a demo/test environment to see the overall outcome of that.

    Best regards,
