is the loss on sale of fixed assets a capital loss/revenue loss? other than p/l whereelse we can chrg it?
U S Sharma (firstname.lastname@example.org) 08 June 2011
fixed assets where depriciation is availed, any loss at the time of sale when its less than wdv, can be reflected in P/L account
fixed assets where depriciation is not availed, ( personal effects) no such provision to claim loss, it would be capital loss.

MANOJ SHRIPATI (CA FINAL) 08 June 2011
AS PER A.S 10........
LOSS ARISING OUT FROM SALE OF FIXED ASSETS SHOULD BE RECOGNISED IN THE STATEMENT OF PROFIT AND LOSS A/C...AND HENCE IT IS REVENUE LOSS...
BIFIRCATION IS NECESSARY ONLY IN CASE OF PROFIT......
IF SELLING PRISE IS MORE THAN ORIGINAL COST THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN O.C AND S.P WILL BE TREATED AS CAPITAL PROFIT AND WILL BE TRANSFERD TO CAPITAL RESERVE....

As per AS-10 '' Accounting for Fixed Assets"
In case of previously revalued fixed asset- if there is loss on sale, then it can be adjusted against the balance of revaluation reserve(revaluation of same asset) if any and the balance is debited to P&L A/c.
In case of other fixed assets- charged to P&L A/c.
As per AS-5" Net profit or loss for the period, prior period items, and change in Accounting policies"
Loss on sale of fixed asset is an ordinary activity. The nature and amount of such item should be SEPARATELY disclosed in P&L A/c.

AS 10 clearly speltout that loss or profit on sale of fixed asset should be recognised in P&L account.
and as manoj said. profit on sale of fixed asset over and above depriciation written off on that asset should transfer to genaral reserve

When should the profit or loss on sale of fixed asset be recognized if maintaining several assets in the same block?
