May I ask if anyone know how to enter purchase a new property in Reckon plus 2023 ( Desktop)

I did some study online and I was suggested as following

Firstly, setup a Header for the Property by Address under Non - Current Asset..

There would be at least 3 sub accounts.

These include Cost Price and adjusted fee, Stamp Duty and Legal Fees.

There would be sub accounts for Div 40 and Div 43 if applicable.

Could anyone to confirm if it is right?

Thank you

    The information you found online is fairly correct except it should be a Fixed Asset. The costs associated with the purchase are not expensed as they form part of the asset's cost base for CGT so - as per the info you found - these should be added under this same (Fixed Asset) Account too.
