Fixed Assets - Change the base value to the beggining of the first adquisition - MACRS depreciation

Hello SAP community,

I would like to ask if you know how to proceed in the following scenario. At the company where I work, we have a situation where a fixed asset is purchased in year 1, and in year 2 or 3, there is an addition to that fixed asset. They are asking me to start depreciating that addition from year 1, and additionally, to calculate all this under the MACRS depreciation model. Does anyone have any idea how I can configure the depreciation key in this case? The calculation works correctly when I bring the value of the initial acquisition, but when I record the addition, the calculations are no longer correct.

Hi Mark, these notes do not give an impression of how the changed IRS MACRS rates are to be introduced and applied into asset accounting after the asset is operational. Once the depreciation keys are configured, MACRS rates populated, 1 or 2 depreciations posted; how the new rates are to be introduced?
