Asset Management Models With Odoo 15 Accounting Module

Functional Odoo 15 Accounting

The process of monitoring, organizing, and selling a firm’s assets is asset management. Machinery, cars, computers, and other equipment have been invested in a company recently, and these are fixed assets that we plan to use for multiple years. However, as time passes, the value of assets reduces widely. The evaluation of assets and the latest working conditions assist in understanding the loss or gain of a business. A firm should handle various assets, which becomes challenging in some cases. Odoo 15 Accounting module provides asset models management for your company and makes it easy to set depreciation in a specific duration. Users can develop various asset models for your firm with the help of the Odoo 15 Accounting module.   

This blog provides an overview of asset management models in the Odoo 15 Accounting module.

We can configure asset models from the Configuration feature of the Odoo 15 Accounting module. It is easy to set the depreciation of an asset value in a specific situation. For example, consider a situation in which you buy a computer with a gross value of Rs. 1200. Later, you decide to amortize it in three years, and the rate of a damaged computer is set to be Rs. 300 (salvage value) after three years. Hence, the estimated value of the computer at the end of its lease term becomes Rs.900 (residual value). All the depreciation values are recorded automatically by Odoo after we configure the values correctly.

To Create an Asset Model

Choose the Asset Models menu in the Management section of the Configuration tab. All created asset models in your firm are visible in the Asset Models window. It consists of details such as Asset Name, Method, Period Length, Fixed Asset Amount, Number of Depreciations, and more, as displayed in the screenshot below.

Click on CREATE icon to develop a new Asset model, ‘ Computers 3 Years’. Add Asset Model Name as ‘Computer 3 Years’ on the new page. Now, let’s figure out depreciation methods for your asset depreciation. Users can select a method to compute the depreciation line amount. Three types of depreciation methods include Declining, Straight Line, and Declining then Straight Line.

Straight Line

We can linearly find out depreciation with the assistance of a Straight Line method. It is calculated based on the total gross value divided by the number of depreciations. A straight line graph occurs for this depreciation model.

Declining

Users can set a Declining Factor after selecting the Method as Declining. It calculates by multiplying the residual value with the declining factor. This process is repeated till the time of depreciation of an asset.

Declining then Straight Line

We get a combination of declining depreciation and straight-line when selecting the Method as Declining then Straight Line. The lowest depreciation value equals the straight-line value in the Declining then Straight Line method. We can choose a Straight Line depreciation method for the asset model Computers 3 Years, as displayed in the screenshot below.
