What is the difference between “SL Asset Value” and “Asset Value”?


If you look at the query “triFiscalLineItem – Display – Likely Term Type B – Associated To Current Record” in TRIRIGA 10.5.2, it is based on the [triCostItem] triFiscalLineItem BO and the [triCostItem] triLeaseFiscalLineItem form.

However, the report uses the triSLAssetValueNU (straight line) field for asset value (for Operating leases), while the form uses the triAssetValueNU field for asset value (for Capital/Finance leases). Which is correct? Shouldn’t both of these values be working from the same field? Or is one field calculated based on the other?

Both of these fields represent asset value for the new accounting standards (FASB ASC 842). The asset value for Operating or Finance is dependent on depreciation (amortization which is calculated differently for Operating and Finance classifications.) Hence, they are represented by 2 different asset value fields:

  • The triSLAssetValueNU field is used to store the value for Operating leases. (The field for Operating is represented with “SL” or straight-line.)
  • The triAssetValueNU field is used to store the value for Finance leases. (Small Correction: The term “Capital” is not applicable in ASC 842 guidelines.)
