Capital Assets

Amortization
Recording Amortization of Capital Assets

Run the SPA CAAB 201S report to determine the amount of amortization earned during the fiscal year. This report presents the following information for all capital assets by AFR category and amortization indicator.

  • Beginning and ending accumulated amortization balances
  • Additions
  • Deletions
  • Adjustments (restatements)
  • Transfer in
  • Transfer out
  • Construction in Progress (CIP)

This report excludes suspense, surplus and inventoried property as well as property recorded with the acquisition method assets held in trust. Amounts are signed as on Note 2 with Debits (+) and Credits (-). Therefore, a negative in the additions column is an increase in accumulated amortization.

The additions column of this report must match the new amortization for each capital asset category that was added to an agency’s property ledger and needs to be recorded in USAS.
