Down the road (2.0), we're going to have to change the way this is
handled.  However, the best way to do this is to use one transaction
per department.  The other option (that some companies use) is to
split accounts by department.  You might have:

1600-00 Fixed Assets, Corporate
1600-01 Fixed Assets, Accounting
1600-02 Fixed Assets, IT
1600-03 Fixed Assets, Sales and Marketing

etc.....  Which way you do this depends on what works best for your
company.  If you would like, I could arrange a call (via Google Voice)
to consult with you (at normal rate) to discuss which options might
work best for you.
