If you want to create a Depreciation Worksheet by importing assets to a csv template refer to this article and if you want to set up a Quantity Surveyor report to process it in bulk refer to this article
Ensure that the Depreciation Worksheet is set up under the property rather than as a separate asset unless the item to depreciate is unrelated to any property.

Checking Residual Book Cost
After you have entered all the depreciable amounts, you might have a Residual Book Cost amount appearing in red, see image below.
This is the non-depreciable portion of the property cost base that needs to be entered into the schedule with the Depreciation Type being Not Applicable (N/A).
Entering Non-Depreciable Assets
Navigate to Fund Level > Investments > Depreciation Worksheet
Below is an example of the non-depreciable portion of the property being entered into the schedule:
The depreciation worksheet should now have a nil Residual Book Cost amount after entering all the depreciable assets and cost base of the non-deductible portion of the property, as displayed below.
