Asset Value Adjustment

If the value of an Asset changed suddenly due to any damages, it can be recorded using Asset Value Adjustment.

In case of fixed asset management, sometimes the value of an asset needs some adjustment. For example, if a laptop gets damaged for some reason, and its value will be dropped instantly. And in that case, we have to readjust the value of the asset.

To access the Asset Value Adjustment, go to: > Home > Assets > Maintenance > Asset Value Adjustment
