1. No depreciation should be charged for asset acquired/ purchased/ capitalized up to 30 days

Hi,

With regards to your requirement, different Depreciation Keys can be assigned to the Assets which ever Depreciation Key is applicable.

You have to make new depreciation key as per requirements of 50% depreviation and 100% depreciaiton. For 0% depreciation Depreciation Key '0000' which is a standard depreciation key can be used.

Hi Mthiru,

For above requirements we meet by using Depreciation keys and Valuation methods

Questions  one is No depreciation should be charged for asset acquired/ purchased/ capitalized up to 30 days

Ans: Use Period Control Area in that for all types of transactions give  '11' (Next  month) it means Systems calculates depreciation by next month based on Depreciation start date.

Questions Two and Three use Multilevel Depreciation method there u define percentage rate and period validity.

EX: For second question       Rate is 50%           Period is Oct--Feb

      For Third Question       Rate is 100%      Period validity is Apr --Sept

Hi,

  For your 1st Option, for those asset where no depreciation to be calculate just maintain Depreciation Key as "0000" [No depreciation & Interest] for that particular Asset Code in AS01

For your 2nd & 3rd option you have to maintain different Depreciation Key, Multi-lvel method for 50% of the rate of Depreciation & 100 % of the rate of depreciation
