Net Book Value Transfers

The secret to NBV Transfers lie behind the Transfer From/To Books hyperlink on the Cost Information page that appears after the InterUnit Transfer process is initiated.  By selecting ‘Add Book’ instead of ‘Transfer Book’, PeopleSoft knows that the existing asset will be retired.
