Product Release: 2024.05

New automatic fixed asset depreciation, analysis and reporting plus dedicated IBAN/BIC fields for bank and creditor account details

Product Release: 2024.05


The latest release of Aqilla introduces a range of extended Fixed Assets functionality to complement the existing Fixed Asset Reference which automatically calculates asset depreciation and dedicated IBAN/BIC fields for bank and creditor account details.

Fixed Assets


May 2024 sees the introduction of a range of extended Fixed Assets functionality to complement the existing Fixed Asset Reference and accounting capabilities on the Aqilla platform. This powerful addition brings a host of benefits, and if adopted replaces existing the Fixed Assets schedule, whilst leaving your existing data unaffected.


Key Benefits:


You can easily record fixed assets in one central location as it captures important information about each asset, including its purchase date, cost (based on GL posts), useful life, and depreciation method. 

Depreciation methods may differ for each individual asset and across ledgers providing the ultimate flexibility to assess the impact of your options. You can create a depreciation run to automatically calculate the depreciation of each asset which can be posted directly to the Ledger or rough posted for accurate reporting and analysis. 

The depreciation methods available include:

  1. Straight Line – Life in Years, Percentage, or Start & End Dates
  2. Reducing Balance – Life in Years or Start & End Dates plus Accelerator
  3. Sum of Year Digits – Life in Years

Purchase Invoices may be linked to a fixed asset so depreciation is based on the asset’s cost value or cost – residual value as per GL postings, improving accuracy and traceability.

Getting Started

IBAN / BIC fields


Historically, customers have been unable to export both domestic and international payments from the same bank account as this required both domestic and international bank details stored in the same set of fields.

The Bank Account Details, Creditor and Debtor Bank Account Edit pages now have additional fields to capture BIC and IBAN details, for them to be used with the relevant Payment Export formats, such as Generic SEPA.
