For Ordinary depreciation scenario is below: Can anybody suggest me how to configure for this.

If the Depreciation should be calculated for the whole year whenever may be asset purchased eg: even on 31-03-2008 also the depreceiation should calculate from 01.04.2008 to 31.03.2008.

And is the date of capitalization should be the day of inward of asset or capitalize of asset only or not.

Thanks in Advance

Radhika

Please go to AFAMP and check Period Control Method which is assigned to Depr Key in "Assignment of Calculation Method" , Under Acq column '6' must have been selected which is set as 'At the start of the year'

Please assign this period control the respective Depr Key.

If above is selected even if the asset is aquired on the last date of Year, depr will be posted for the entire year.

Hope this will solve your problem,

Thanks for your answer. Though i am assigned 06 in period control for acquisitions if i am giving in asset master creation as01 capitalization date as current date eg.17.11.2008 the depreciation calculation date is considering as 17.11.2008 not as given in period control 06 at the start of the year i.e.01.04.2008.

Can u tell me where we assign depreciatin date as capitalizatin date in configuration. then this problem solves i think.

Dear Ms Radhika,

Please go to SPRO>

Finaancial Accounting (New)>

Asset Accounting>

Transactions>

Specify how default asset value date is determined>

Define variant for determining default asset value date- Double Click

If you have not created any new variant pl select the SAP_DEFAULT

Select that and Double Click on Business Transaction

Against : Current Value Depreciation select '6' i,e First Day of the Fiscal Year.

If you select that along with the existing period control then depr will be calculated from 1st day of Fiscal Year.

Hope it will help you,

Hi,

Thank u

Exactly i wanted to post ordinary depreciation on the first day of financial year whatever may be the acqusition value.

As u said to maintain default value and period control 06 i maintained for both IT dep. and ordinary depreciaiton . Now the first day of financial year is coming for IT Depreciatin key not for Ordinary Depreciaiton Key.

I want ordianry depreciation to be calculated on the first day of financial year.

thanks in advance
