    I would imagine that this would be a GAIN ON DISPOSAL

    That was my initial thought but if they never took delivery of the car in the first place then I wouldn't put it through the fixed asset accounts.

    Hmmm

    It depends then on who owns the car - or who owned it when it had it's mishap. If you never owned the car or took delivery of the car then you should not have claimed for the car. The delivery company or the car dealership should have claimed. If you have claimed, it MUST be your asset (or your company's) therefore....

    A bit of 'substance over form' may be in point here..

    Actually, why did they not just send you another car?

    LOL :) Yes that would have worked even better! A very unsual situation.
