Hi SAP,

Would like to check how budget control on Fixed Asset (CAPEX) acquisitions in S4H cloud?

As internal order no longer available in S4H cloud.

Not able use WBS to control Fixed Asset (CAPEX) budget due to unable input WBS element in asset master's origin tab.

Hence please advice is there workaround solution to this.

Thanks.

Regards,

Samantha

Hi samantha_sps ,

You have several options here:

1. Cost Center Budgeting - in your asset purchases you'll need to enter a cost center as a cost object (depending on which method of purchasing you use). If Cost Center Budgeting is active (you can activate it via the configuration), the availability control will pop-up an error message when the budget exceeds limits (also depending on the tolerance you configure), hence, will control your asset purchases.

2. WBS budgeting - to trigger budget availability control on WBS, you don't need to add it to a master data. You can add WBS with the budget assigned either in Purchasing Order or via direct Asset Acquisition in Finance (depending on how you purchase your asset).

3. Funds Management - if it is active and in use, you can utilize FM budgeting and availability control.

Hope this helps.

Hi Fidan,

Thanks for your advice.

And would like to clarify that, either in Purchase Order or via direct Asset Acquistion, the cost center or WBS only allow input in technical Clearing Account integrated Asset Acquisition line item instead of Asset Aquisition Cost account. Due to this the budget will not be consumed.

Example - Entry View Direct Asset Acquistion input with WBS

DR Technical Clearing Account integrated Asset Acquisition (input with WBS)

CR Supplier

Entry automatic simulated

DR Asset Aquisition Cost

CR Technical Clearing Account integrated Asset Acquisition (input with WBS)

Hope can advice.

Regards,

Samantha

Hi Fidan,

Error encounter when input WBS for direct asset acquisition.

Hope can advice

Thanks.

Account object Cost Center differs from that in asset master record

Message no. AAPO189

Diagnosis

Account assignment object Cost Center with its value 0054201101 is not

the same as the value entered in the asset master record.

System Response

The system keeps the current account assignment object Cost Center with

the value 0054201101, or the posting is rejected.
