Administer Fixed Asset Register


Course Outline and Topics

Course Overview

A business should know the condition and location of assets at all times. If a fixed asset register isn’t in place, a business is vulnerable to fraud, theft and loss; inadequate maintenance of assets; and non-compliance issues.

The Administer Fixed Asset Register is a short online course that will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to maintain a register of capital expenditure items. You will learn how to reconcile asset registers to general ledgers. You will also learn how to recognise new assets and asset categories and work with spreadsheets.

On completion of this online course, you will feel confident to implement and maintain a fixed asset register for a business.
