Asset retirement by Scrapping ABAVN - asset value date

Former Member
0 Kudos

Dear Gurus,

We recently migrated to ECC6 from SAP 4.7.

When I run T code = ABAVN =

1. I set asset value date >15 Jan 2014 ( eg: 16 Jan, 22 Jan 2014), the simulation becomes:

PKShort TextAmount
75213456-1,046,973.44
70213456

1,020,799.10

( accumulative depreciation until Dec 2013 <1,017,890.84> + Jan 2014 depreciation <2,908.26> )

40981000 (SALES OF FIXED ASSET)26,174.34

2. I set asset value date <=15 Jan 2014 ( eg: 1 Jan, 14 Jan 2014), the simulation becomes:

PKShort TextAmount
75213456-1,046,973.44
702134561,017,890.84 (accumulative depreciation until dec 2013)
40981000 (SALES OF FIXED ASSET)29,028.60

Additional information for asset no : 213456

Cap date : 30.11.1984
Depre key : LINS

Useful Life : 30 years

Ordinary depreciation start date : 01.11.1984

My question are:

1. If I set asset value date > 15 Jan 2014, why the depreciation is added with January 2014 Depreciation, though I haven't posted January 2014 depreciation?

2. Previously when we used SAP 4.7, though we set the asset value date after mid of the month (any date of the month), the calculated depreciation is always without adding that current month depreciation (like example no 2 above). Any setting which I need to check?

Please advise and thank you so much in advance for your help. Appreciate it!

Regards,

Kenzo

Hi Kenzo,

The configuration settings is in two T codes AFAMP and OAVH.

You might have assigned period control in which depreciation is posted pro rata upto mid-period.

If the settings is fine you can leave it else you have to assign different period control in AFAMA.


Hope it solves.

Hi Sethuraman,

You solved my problem. Thanks a lot. I'm just aware of AFAMP. I've already changed the 003 period control used by LINS depreciation key to 01 - pro rata at period start date instead of 02-Pro rata upto mid-period at period start date and my problem solved.

Thanks,
Kenzo

HI Kenzo,

In ECC there is new depreciation calculation which differs from 4.7 based on depreciation term that you use. It's more accurate way on calculating depreciation. Have a look at the link below:

New Depreciation Calculation Using DCP - Asset Accounting (FI-AA) - SAP Library

Hi,

According to me, kindly check the period control set in the Depreciation key that is assigned to the above Asset. I think in period control for Retirement, 02 or 03 would be assigned which suggests that Prorata Basis Depreciation.
