Reporting Requirements for Annual Financial Reports of State Agencies and Universities

Capital Assets

Sale, Disposal or Interagency transfer of Capital Assets
Recording Sale of Capital Assets

Run the SPA CAAB 105 report to show the amount of disposals for an agency. This report contains disposals of property to parties external to the state. It includes all “hard” disposal methods, other than interagency transfers, completed CIP and assets added in error. This report is sorted by:

  • GAAP fund group
  • Depreciable code
  • AFR category
  • GAAP fund type
  • GAAP fund
  • AFR fund
  • SPA agency fund
  • Property number
  • Component number
  • Depreciable entity FY

Subtotals are at the GAAP fund group, depreciable code and AFR category levels.

The amount for the sale of capital assets must match the amount in sale of capital assets reported in governmental fund types. When the entry is made, the balance between the governmental fund types and fund type 11 must net to zero.

Verify that capital outlay activity in governmental funds and basis conversion funds net to zero at the GAAP source/object level using the DR206 — Review Govt-Wide Basis Conversion report located in the FMQuery–SIRS AFR Desk Review menu.

The deletions column in Note 2 must match the net of proceeds from the sale of capital assets and any gain or loss on the sale of capital assets.

Governmental Funds

Modified to Full Accrual Adjustments for Capital Assets

Use the capital asset basis conversion adjustment (fund type 11) to convert governmental fund types from modified accrual to full accrual. For templates that can assist with the preparation of the capital asset adjustment (FT 11) basis conversion entries, see Working Papers.

In governmental funds, sale of capital assets is a separate line item reported under “other financing sources (uses)” in the statement of revenues, expenditures and changes in fund balances. When the sale of capital assets is recorded as “revenues” (using T-code 179 or 195), the USAS entry must be reversed and recorded to “other financing sources (uses).”

  • Corrections before Aug. 31, 20CY, use T-codes 179R/195R and 191
  • Corrections after Aug. 31, 20CY, use T-codes 630 and 657

Since the proceeds from the sale of a capital asset are typically appropriated, record the entries to adjust budget with T-codes 006 and 009 when your agency receives the money.

Use the following COBJs to record sales of capital assets:

  • 3349 Land Sales
  • 3750 Sale of Furniture and Equipment
  • 3751 Sale of Buildings
  • 3834 Gain/Loss on Capital Assets
  • 3839 Sale of Vehicles, Boats and Aircraft
  • 3841 Sale of Other Capital Assets
