Fixed asset accounting

It is the responsibility of the fixed asset accounting team to record and document inflows and outflows from the university’s fixed assets as well as their performance, taking into account all fixed assets with a value of at least 410 euros excluding VAT. To do this, we describe the item in question, identify it (esp. by assigning an inventory number), determine where the item is used and which cost centre/cost unit it belongs to and document the day and time of acquisition, the depreciation period and how much it cost to acquire the item.

This information forms the basis for the university’s financial accounting and for the preparation of the annual overview of the university’s assets. In addition, the fixed asset accounting team delivers important information for the sale of items that belong to the university, as well as detailed inventory catalogues.

All new items that have yet to be catalogued have to be marked with a label/barcode as of 2014. This makes it easier to match them with the correct users.
