To add an asset to a low value pool:

  1. Click Low Value Pool
  2. Search for the asset by typing into the Asset Search field
  3. Change the Pool Date to reflect the date that the asset will be allocated to the pool.

    Simple Fund 360 will automatically determine the depreciation rate to use by looking at the Pool Date. If the Pool Date is prior to the current financial year, the full depreciation rate will be used, otherwise if the Pool Date is within the current year, the half rate will be used.

    In subsequent financial years, the full rate will be used when depreciating assets in the low value pool.
  4. If required, edit the Opening Cost, Opening Written Down Value, or Closing Written Down Value.
  5. Click Add to Pool.

Once the pool is added, it will be visible in the Depreciation Schedule. The rate used to depreciate the low value pool in the current financial year is displayed within the low value pool name.
