Reducing in Useful life without Catch-up depreciation

Former Member

I got the requirement to reduce the Useful life and charge depreciation evenly WITHOUT posting a catch-up depreciation. It's the same functionality as Smoothing. I know about Smoothing functionality in TC : OAYR but that is Co. Code & Dep. Area specific and not asset specific.

We need to apply only for certain assets. Does anyone has any suggestions? It's really urgent and need really quick solution.

I really appreciate your time and help on this.

Hi Niki,

If you reduce the useful life, in normal case the depr. changest and the system has to recalculate th derp. for ll open fiscal years according to the settings in OAYR you have described. This is normal and if the system would not do this it would be not correct.

But If you close for example the fiscal year 2013 and on 01.01.2014 you change the useful life, the system can change th depreciation only for the future.
