The purpose of the Fixed Asset extension package is to provide a register of Fixed Assets. Information about the Asset includes details on the asset type/class, location and associated transactions of fixed assets. The Fixed Asset register provides detailed information about the number and value of Assets compared to a few generic entries in a General Ledger asset account.
A Fixed Asset, also known as property, plant and equipment, is a term used in accounting for assets which cannot easily be converted into cash. This can be compared with current assets such as cash or bank accounts, which are described as liquid assets. In most cases, only tangible assets are referred to as fixed.
