Manual and Quick Additions
Adding Assets Manually
You use Quick Additions to add assets manually. All assets added to the primary asset book are automatically converted to the reporting currencies asset books when you save transaction. Based on asset date placed in service, Oracle Assets retrieves an exchange rate to convert the asset cost and depreciation reserve.
Using Quick Additions : Use the quick additions process to quickly add ordinary assets.
Using Detail Additions : Use detail additions process to manually add complex assets, which quick additions process does not handle:
1. Assets that have a salvage value.
2. Assets with more than one assignment and with more than one source line.
3. Assets to which the category default depreciation rules do not apply.
4. Subcomponent assets.
5. Leased assets and leasehold improvements.
6. Assets assigned to warranties.

Tag Number : Enter a unique tag number.
Asset category descriptive field : For each asset category, you can set up a descriptive flexfield for additional information based on the asset category you enter.
Asset Key : Group or identify groups of assets quickly. Even without financial impact, using this tracks assets groups differently than the asset category.
Asset Type : Valid assets types are capitalized, construction-in-process, and expensed.
Units : Represents the parts of an asset and groups together identical assets.
Book : An asset must belong to only one corporate depreciation book. Assign a new asset to a corporate depreciation book before assigning it to any tax books.
Costs : The current cost can be positive, zero and negative.
Date placed in service : If the current date is in the current open period, the default date placed in service is the calendar date you enter the asset. If the calendar date is before the current date of the open period, the default date is the last day of the open period.
Depreciation Expense Account : Assign assets to depreciation expense accounts. Oracle Assets charges depreciation expense.
