Kommentare: Overall, I had a very positive experience with Fixed Assets, there is a lot to learn, but it's worth it because the program is capable of a lot. I would advise, if there isn't already, a very basic step-by-step user manual. I know there are tutorial videos, but videos, whether I'm watching it for my training purposes or having someone else who's training watch, are ineffective. I want something solid that I can quickly grab and refer to when I encounter a block or impasse and need to solve quickly.

Vorteile: I liked how organized the software would list each asset and how, based on the type of asset you added, Fixed Asset CS could automatically trigger the correct depreciation method. It was also very easy to cut and paste assets if you entered them in the incorrect activity. Reflecting a sale was very intuitive with the "Mass disposition" feature. Reports printed very clearly. Preparing business property tax returns was also very easy to do - Overall, Fixed Assets CS is a very sophisticated and helpful program.

Nachteile: Sometimes it felt a little too complicated for its own good. There is a lot of initial setting up you have to do when you set up a new client (i.e. layout and presentation of the depreciation schedule) which, unless you're familiar with the program, can result in a lot of trial and error. Mainly, I didn't like how I couldn't be in the entity's tax return at the same time. I know there was a way to access assets through the tax return but Fixed Assets CS had many more options, so i preferred working in that application when adding assets.

Tracking assets is a pain in the depreciation

Vorteile: When our firm has to enter more than 5 or so assets into a tax return we use this software to track them instead of our tax software. This simplifies the process for companies with a lot of assets. One of our firms' managers is very impressed with the software even though he has used other competitors out there and this one is the best he has used, in his opinion. There are LOTS of options for how to depreciate assets and you can even set up custom options for just about everything in the software. We had some training recently where we discovered areas of the software that we haven't even tapped into yet so it is VERY robust.

Nachteile: It requires logging in and this is fine - but setting up accounts and users can be problematic since they moved to a PIN system rather than our zip code and it took 3 of us in the office and several days of trying to figure it out (a few hours a day). It was a little less than pleasant experience even though it should have been seamless.

Kommentare: It allows me to calculate the depreciation and amortization of various assets easily and efficiently.

Vorteile: I used Fixed Assets daily at work. I can add various equipment/furnishings purchases, and it will calculate the depreciation expense for me.

Nachteile: It can be complicated at times to tie the numbers to the books, as there are sometimes rounding issues from conversion, but otherwise there is nothing I dislike about this software.

Kommentare: Used for preparing client financial statements and tax returns. Saved time entering asset related information on tax returns by importing to tax software quickly.

Vorteile: Tax depreciation options work well and can be integrated with CS tax prep software relatively easily. Add and removing assets is relatively simple.

Nachteile: Can be difficult to navigate actions to perform on fixed asset data. Moderate learning curve to operate and accurately maintain asset listing.

Vorteile: I found the software to be very easy to use and apply for tax preparation. As a tax preparer, I was able to use the depreciation output and easily plug the numbers into my tax software. It helps make depreciation easier.

Nachteile: I wish the software gave a little more guidance on asset lives. That may be the biggest issue I've found in that classifying assets can be difficult.
