Asset Register Policy - Jan 23
Local councils must maintain an asset register to ensure fixed assets are appropriately safeguarded. Once recorded on the Asset Register at acquisition cost, the value of assets must not change from year to year until disposal. Concepts of depreciation and impairment adjustments are not appropriate for local councils.
The Register is confirmed by the Council at the end of each financial year but is a working document over the following financial year, during which Council Officers will update and amend details as necessary.
The definition of fixed assets are property and equipment with a useful life of more than one year used by the Council to deliver its services.
A Fixed Asset Register has four main purposes:
A) It forms a basis for completion of box 9 in the 'Annual Return.'
B) It forms a basis for decisions on risk and insurance issues.
C) It provides information on the age and potential lifespan of certain items.
D) It provides assurance of the continued existence of Council's property.
