Are you a new user who has purchased assets under amortization and would like to add them to Accountable?

In this article, we go through the steps in detail.

Here are the steps:

→ Encode the expense

First add the purchase invoice and then :

  • Specify the purchase date

  • Supplier name

  • Select the “Investment” category and then the corresponding sub-category.

  • Register the asset in the system (in the case of a vehicle)

  • Indicate the % of professional use

  • Indicate amortization period

  • Name the item

🚨 If you are subject to VAT, you must link the expense to the corresponding quarter, i.e., the VAT quarter in which this asset was declared.
