0004610: Accounting for Product stock assets and Long term fixed assets should be different

DescriptionOne account for all types of physical assets (P_ASSET_ACCT) is not enough. There is a difference between the 'Short term assets' like Warehouse stock, Materials etc. and 'Long term assets', such as company equipment, machinery, buildings, vehicles. There are law regulations about the Long term assets, defining strict criteria about them - minimum value of the asset, asset type, depreciation plan allowed.

There are two main differences between the Short and Long term assets:
1. Short term assets are intended to be sold for profit (products) or used in production (materials). Long term assets are intended to be used by the company itself.
2. Short term assets form an one-time expense at the moment of sale. Long term assets form an expense each month, as they depreciate.

In my country - Bulgaria - for example, Long term assets are divided in two big groups - Material and Non-material. The group of Long term Material assets is then divided in sub-groups based on the asset type:
- Buildings
- Machinery and equipment
- Vehicles
- Merchandise inventory
- Computer hardware
- Other long term material assets
Each of these asset types has law defined annual depreciation percentage limit. Each asset type corresponds to a specific account. There are also corresponding accounts for depreciation and accumulated depreciation for each group. So, using only P_ASSET_ACCT, A_DEPRECIATION_ACCT and A_ACCUMDEPRECIATION_ACCT is not enough.

For correct accounting of Short term assets detailization level may be lower(it is enough to know total quantity and cost). For correct accounting of Long term assets a more detailed data is needed. Each operation is related with physical item instance, which should have an unique ID number, date of requisition (or date when depreciation begins), purchase value, actual remaining value (which equals Purchase value - Accumulated depreciation) etc. These are needed to form the Accounting report of Depreciations.
