All organizations need a comprehensive plan of operation, as well as a budget for its execution. This budget will generally deal with operational expenditure, project revenues and fixed and variable costs.
However, the company may also need to pay for larger assets to help with operation, and these assets will need to be accounted for over more than one financial period. This is known as capital expenditure or CapEx for short and typically requires its own budget.
One can imagine that the amount and diversity of assets that a company owns, dramatically increases the complexity of the process. A CapEx register enables you to plan accordingly, analyze the accompanied depreciation and plan for the cash flow impact when replacing the relevant asset. When carrying this out in Excel, one faces a high risk of manual errors and it becomes hard to trace and correct such mistakes.
In some cases, this is the reason to choose for a simple allocation model whilst assets are used for different products, projects or even by more entities. With an integrated solution, it is possible to maintain one single truth. As the allocation is executed automatically, one can even choose to use flexible cost- drivers. The register gives insight in the actual profitability and enables you to plan accordingly to achieve your strategic goals.
This is an approach with high maintenance costs and it is still prone to manual errors. The asset register, with all its details such as dates, text, investments, useful life, depreciation model, enables you to keep everything in one place.
