Depreciation and disposal of Plant & Machinery in VT Transaction+

FACFAC Registered Posts: 17
I am preparing account for a client who is sole trader. He started the business 01 Jan 2017 and Ceased trading on 15 Jan 2018. I am preparing account for this period. He purchased some equipment during year and I need to allow deprecation for them and then dispose them.

How deprecation and disposal should be posted in VT Transaction+
Assuming Cost – additions= £2000 and depreciation is = £200?
And amount of disposal: £1800

Thank you for your help.

    What's happened to the equipment? did he sell it and if so for how much? If not what is the MV of the equipment at the time of disposal?
