Date parameters for legacy data transfer AS91

HI

My client is on a restructuring process with effect on 01 June 2013 and we are creating new company codes.They have to upload theAsset account balances.I have prepared an lsmw based on AS91.In customising we have set the dates for as91 legacy transfer as at 31122012 because if we put 30052013 the figure for dereciation is being distorted.But the challenge is assets as at 2013 from January how are we going to capture them as well as their Gl balances for assets as they upload that means for example depreciation expense should not include depreciation they have run form 01012013 to May.Please help if there are other issues i have to consider

Regards

Rejoice

    Hi Rejoice MututsaRejoice Mututsa

    My guest golived on mid-year some company code. We still put data transfer date in mid-year. I think that Depreciation is being distorted not much. If Deprecation divided into 2 parts true: Deprecation before 2013(Accm.ord.deprec) year, and Depreciation in 2013 (Ord.dep.posted)

    Please read the below.

    1. You should have both Accumulated depreciation and ordinary depreciation for all the migrated assets. For year 2012 acquisitions, you will have the APC values + Ordinary depreciation. For prior to 2012 year acquisitions, you will have APC + Accumulated dep + Ordinary dep.

    2. You should only capture the depreciation upto 31.12.2012 in the assets sheet which you upload.

    3. You should create 2 LSMW cycles 1 for Previous years and the other one for current year 2012.

    4. OAYC Settings for previous period and year are set to be correct.

    5. Finally, do the upload first in Quality and verify the details. If you feel correct, then proceed in PRD.

    Hope this helps

    • There are different ways and different consultants would be having different opinions. As per our experience, it is better if you post the depreciation in SAP itself from JAN 2013 onwards. As the expert Malhar Jain explained below, it is correct and system will take car of the depreciation posting current year 2013.

      But ultimately, what your local consultants suggest is the better option to go since they will be assisting and solving the further issues.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    If generaaly its advisable that the transfer of legacy data takes place at starting of Fiscal Year, so no issue is faced for the purpose of Depreciation. Regarding your issue, in AS91 you enter the values of Accumulated Depreciation only upto the amount of depreciation posted in the old system. As after that date the SAP system will take care off the Depreciation psotings.

    Regards,
    Malhar.
