  2. Navigate to Journal Entry Vouchers and enter the source document id XX which is posted in the receiver fixed asset as a result of transfer posting.
  3. Click on Journal Entry Voucher ID XX and Edit.
  4. Click on Reverse.


Before you apply the reverse of the already posted transfer posting, you need to see if there are any later postings done to the asset which resulted the reduce of the asset value.

For example: Revaluation posting ( Transaction Category: Revaluation ; Line item Type: Write-Up of Depreciation: Current Year ) which adjusted the depreciation amount.


  1. Go to Fixed Assets work center.
  2. Fixed Assets view and enter the fixed asset id ABC(represents Fixed Asset Id).
  3. Navigate to Values tab.
  4. Select each Valuation View and see the addtional postings that are posted to this asset apart from the Transaction - Transfer - Receiving.

You notice that Revaluation posted are done, then you need to reverse them by clicking on Source document id > Edit > Reverse.

Repeat this reverse option for all the valuation views and where you see this Revaluation posting. After the later postings like this are reversed then you will be able to reverse the partial transfer posting done this asset.
