Tracking the quantity, location, condition, and maintenance of fixed assets is a challenge for most organizations. Fixed asset reconciliation services assist organizations to tally and bring together different data set assets to ensure accurate and proper valuation of assets. A well-defined reconciliation process helps in tracking and determining the money trails of an organization. We at Outsource2india have over two decades of experience in providing organizations across different domains with fixed asset reconciliation services.
Our clients leverage our fixed asset reconciliation statement to identify and establish book value, debits, and credits to fixed asset accounts along with accumulated depreciation. In the process, we ensure accurate reconciliation of the fixed asset register of the company. We bank on spreadsheets, FAR i.e. Fixed Asset Register, or an ERP system like SAP to track and update the valuation of the assets through well-defined audit activities.
As a well-known name among fixed asset reconciliation services companies we provide the following services across industries -
Every year, a company's fixed assets - such as plant, property, & equipment - undergo changes in their market prices. Every company must account for changes in asset value with the help of cost methods or revaluation techniques. We help companies compute or review the fixed asset value to indicate the correct value as on the closing date and thereby facilitate proper fixed asset reconciliation.
With this service, we identify the depreciation of fixed assets to enter their true value in audit reports. Some such fixed assets include buildings, machinery, and office equipment. We conclude after considering a host of factors such as overuse, aging, and damage and banking on a few well-established computing methods such as straight-line depreciation, double declining balance method, service unit method, etc.
We help organizations review depreciation computations before they reconcile them in their balance sheets. This helps in establishing accuracy in the process. Our review service looks into factors that have been taken into consideration to compute depreciation and relooks at the methods used to compute the asset value. Our clients leverage this service to validate the recording and manage and reconcile the list of assets.
Not all fixed assets are eligible for depreciation computation. For instance, land is one such asset. Similarly, betterments or improvements made to depreciable property should be depreciated separately from the original depreciable property. When a new property is added as an asset we look into the feasibility aspect of whether it is acceptable or not as per law. This service assists in the proper mapping of assets for proper reconciliation.
It is mandatory for organizations to de-recognize a fixed asset when they sell the asset to another party or when the asset is disposed of because it is no longer operational. This process involves removing the cost of the asset and other accrued depreciation and impairment losses from the balance sheet, registering cash receipt, and the resulting gain or loss in the balance sheet. Our services ensure that the removal of the fixed asset followed by reconciliation has been appropriately implemented.
The fixed asset statement is a comprehensive account of all the above-mentioned asset reconciliation requirements. In other words, it states the accuracy of the value, the correctness of the methods used, the value with terms of the closing date, the acceptability of new assets, and so on.
We have a well-defined fixed asset reconciliation process to compare two sets of records. We bank on this robust process to ensure the figures are accurate and reflect no inconsistencies whatsoever and determine the money trail. We perform and prepare fixed assets reconciliation statements in the following ways -
Our first step towards fixed asset reconciliation is to ready the previous year's fixed asset balance. This helps us understand the depreciation rates applied and the useful lives of assets, both of which are critical in reconciling the current year's fixed assets
In this step, we cross-check the fixed assets register to verify the date of placement and date of removal of the asset from the performance. We scan through the authorized invoices to find out the balances of amounts of purchases and disposals. Besides this, we also cross-verify ancillary costs such as shipment, delivery, installation, and set-up costs and ensure they have been capitalized. If the assets are added in the form of construction, we review the capitalization of interest
In this step, the useful lives of assets are assessed along with impairment assessment and computing the depreciation value. In other words, we look into whether there is lesser or higher deterioration in the performance of the assets. In case of a permanent decline in the value of the assets, we assess and provide the impairment value of the asset. The impairment is reconciled in keeping with organizational guidelines and the applicable accounting standards. Likewise, the depreciation rates are applicable as per the regulations. In this stage, we closely check and reconcile the depreciation rates for current-year purchases and disposals
Organizations must have an internal control system to check the assets physically. This is done routinely to assess the health status of the assets and ensure steps are taken to maintain their original condition. All the assessment information is logged in to the logbook. We check the logs to know the condition of the assets and the actual hours they have been put to use
This is the final stage of the fixed asset reconciliation process. It entails the verification of accounts and balances and reconciling them with the closing balance. At the end of this stage, we issue the reconciliation statement, which is a verified summary of the closing balances of the fixed assets
