Capital Assets

Depreciation
Recording Depreciation of Capital Assets

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

  • Beginning and ending accumulated depreciation 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 depreciation.

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