Explicitly applying the mid-quarter convention for assets acquired in the current year

Show expandable text

The application automatically determines whether the mid-quarter convention applies and recalculates depreciation when necessary.

To explicitly include or exclude current-year assets from the automatic mid-quarter determination and calculation, perform the following steps.

  1. Open the Asset List window for an activity.
  2. Select the desired current-year asset and click the Modify button.
  3. In the Asset Detail dialog, click the Other tab.
  4. Click the Mid-Quarter & Section 179 Force Options button in the lower-left corner.
  5. In the Mid-Quarter & Section 179 Force Options dialog, mark the appropriate checkboxes in each treatment tab.


  • To have the application automatically determine whether or not to use the mid-quarter convention for this asset, repeat the procedure and clear the checkbox you marked in step 5.
  • To force assets to follow mid-quarter convention for the client on a treatment-by-treatment basis, choose Setup > Treatments, select the appropriate treatment, click the Options button, and click the appropriate option in the Mid-quarter application for current-year acquisitions group box.
