in a far way i'd book as

cash/cheque 50.00 GBP
to revenue sold assets 40.00 GBP
to Sales-VAT 10.00 GBP

is in the UK a residual value of 1.00 GBP usual also for "written off" assets?
if yes..

depreciation of residual value for sold asset (1.00 GBP)
to asset register (1.00 GBP)

OK Thanks Bert,
But I was thinking to post straight to P+L a/c as the asset has already been written off previously.

Ouch, i've just realised you wrote 200.00 GBP (low-value asset) and before i thought "2,000.00 GBP"; than please ignore my previous post.
Than i'd suggest to book that sales as "other revenues"
bank/cheque
to other revenue

Hi

Since it had been fully written off the £50 should be shown as a chargeable gain which can be used to reduce your WDA charge
for the year by £50.

Kind regards

On the p&l you want to make sure it's presented distinct from income from operations.
