Create one or more asset registers. Faswin allows you to create multiple Assets
Registers. Ideal for accountants doing the books for multiple companies, or for
companies with multiple divisions.
Create Departments, Cost Centres, and Groups. Assets can be grouped together in
to these different classifications which is really helpful if you have lots of
assets to manage. If necessary you can move assets between different
classifications. If you only have a small number of assets then you can skip
this step and a General department and Cost Centre will be created for you.
Import your existing asset information from Excel,
or capture your assets using the simplified on-screen form. Faswin has fields to
capture heaps of information about your assets, but most of the fields are
optional. So use as many of them, or as few of them as you like.
If necessary you can store different settings and values for internal and
external records. In other words Faswin is able to calculate your depreciation
in two ways simultaneously. On method for internal accounting requirements, and
another method for external accounting requirements required by your tax
All common depreciation methods are allowed, and you can use different methods
for different assets.
Browse through your asset list using the intuitive list interface. Update asset
information as you please. Capture new assets as you purchase them. From this
window you can also export your asset information to Excel, print the list as-is
or even email the list to another person.
Capture any asset sales, or asset scrapping which happens during the year.
Assets can be partially sold or scrapped as necessary. Faswin contains a number
of wizards used for uncommon tasks like this.
During the year, feel free to report on as many items as you like. There are
lots of reports in Faswin to cater for your every need. Reports can be limited
to a specific set of assets, or can encompass all the assets. Most reports have
additional options as well, for example when printing the asset list you can
decide which assets to include in the list.
Reports can be viewed on screen using the built-in report previewer, send to PDF
files for easy portability, or printed on your printer.
At the end of the year generate all the reports required by your accountant, and
your tax man, and do a year end. View multiple pages on the screen at the same
time, and optionally select which pages you would like to print.
Capturing all this data is useless if you cannot get the information out of the
program, quickly, easily, and in a format which is useful to you.

other major and minor features which are designed to make your life easier.
Nothing is more precious than your data, so Faswin includes the ability to

restore data if you make a mistake.
