Fixed assets or long term assets are recorded in a register and each asset needs its own fixed asset register template to record full details of the asset.
The main uses of the fixed asset register template include:
- It allows an analysis of the fixed assets shown on the balance sheet.
- As a register to carry out a physical check of each asset.
- To provide an accurate net book value and details of any outstanding finance at the time of disposal.
Our tutorial on fixed assets gives full details about fixed assets and the use of the fixed asset register.

Fixed Asset Register Reconciliation
The entries in the fixed asset register are for memorandum purposes only and do not form part of the double entry bookkeeping records.
At the end of an accounting period to ensure that the correct bookkeeping postings have been made to the general ledger a reconciliation can be carried out between the balance on the general ledger and the totals of all the asset sheets in the fixed asset register.
