Am I really the only guy wanting this? Perhaps means that only I want to use ERPNext to manage Fixed Asset Register in India.

Come on India implementations, you guys all need this:

@adityaduggal @ishanloya @vivekck @Raghav_s @Sonali_Budhrani

Come on and ask for this.



@JayRam I fully agree that the WDV method is not supported and it should be piece of cake for the WDV to be implemented for @nabinhait

Just a word of caution which is not mentioned in the issue, suppose we have an asset with value as Rs 1,00,000/- at the begining of year and the percentage of depreciation is 15% then in that case if you selecting monthly posting of the depreciation then the total depreciation has to be 15000/- instead of the reducing balance calculation since if you calculate WDV on a monthly basis the total depreciation would come out to be less than 15000/- that is the only point to be taken care of when designing the WDV method with multiple options for posting as in SLM or Double Declining method.

@JayRam I agree we need this functionality for Fixed asset.
