Dep'n Query

Hi guys,

I am trying to change our depreciation settings so, we can post depreciation periods 1 - 12 as planned, but as soon as we post it - we want to do enhancements to the asset (acquision using fb05). However, when we do this currently; it does not allow us to close that year without running depreciation again so, it can account for the asset value. Can anyone help me change the settings so, we do not have to "repeat" depreciation to change the settings. We use the LINS depreciation setting.

I'll give a numerical example incase, my explanation has not been clear.

Asset x value: 1000  Remaining useful life: 5 therefore, depreciation for the YEAR (periods 1 - 12) should be 200. We run AFAB to execute depreciation as normal. As a result, the NBV now is 800. We then want to run fb05 to enhance the asset value by 400 making the closing NBV 1200.

However, when we currently do the above; it prompts us to run depreciation again, but, we just want to close the year at the closing NBV as 1200.

Can anyone help?

Regards,

Norm

Hi Norm,

If you post additions to the existing asset, then definitely it will ask for run depreciation. Until you run it you cannot close the year in AA. However, at the time of addition posting, if you maintain the value date as next year, then system wont post depreciation in repeat mode.

Thank you for your reply Mukthar.

Can you elaborate on what you meant by "maintain value date as next year"?

Hi Norman,

After you done posting to the asset, change the dep.start date as next year date, then it wont ask for run the dep. in repeat mode.

Is there any way for me to depreciate on Opening NBV Figures? How can i configure existing SAP Keys to depreciate over remaining useful life from the Opening NBV Figures?

The multi level method of the dep.key should have the base method as 24 and select the check box remaining life in it. Then only it calculates the dep.based on remaining life.
