Trying to set up Fixed Assets in AX and use straight-line depreciation


I’m trying to start using the Fixed Asset part of AX with depreciation and need some assistance! I’m following the AX training materials but I’m not understanding how the depreciation works after I have everything set up. I’m trying to enter in laptops as new staff are hired and then start depreciating them over three years. Currently, I’m ignoring the inventory piece.

I’ve posted assets in previous periods but I don’t see where the assets have depreciated months later. I believe I have the depreciation profile and value model set up correction so that the period is monthly.

Should the depreciation post automatically at the end of each period (month) or does it create a journal that I need to manually post each month?



Create a FA Journal and Run depreciation proposal to calculate depreciation.

And then post the Journal
