Account asset disposal

This module enables a real asset disposal with the proper accounting entries.

When an asset gets broken or is totally depreciated, you can close it and Odoo will generate automatically the asset close move (and compute the loss if a residual value is pending).

You can also cancel this disposal for returning to the previous state.


  1. Go to Accounting > Configuration > Management > Asset Types.
  2. There's a new field called "Loss Account" for setting the default loss account when disposing assets.


  1. Go to Accounting > Adviser > Assets.
  2. There you will find a 'Dispose' button (instead of standard 'Set to Close').
  3. After clicking it, a wizard pops-up for asking disposal date and loss account to use if any residual value is pending.
  4. Click on "Dispose asset".
  5. A new screen will appear with the disposal account entry.
  6. On the asset, all remaining depreciation lines are removed, and a new one appears for the disposal move.

You can cancel afterwards the disposal:

  1. Click on "Undo disposal" on the asset.
  2. The disposal entry is removed.
  3. The depreciation board is restored with all the remaining depreciations.
