    Hello Manas,

    Its not recommneded to Change the Depreciation rate every year. However,

    if you make the depreciation key editable in asset master, the depreciation calculation happens accordingly. Define your deprecaition terms in depr key. If the planned deprecaition doesn't get update automatically, then Recaculated deprecation.

    Recommend you to test extensively in dev client as this will have lot of changes on your Financial Statements. Do let us know if this works for you.

    Once you change the depreciation rate its effect will be retrospective however its posting will be in next afab run

    Are you sure you also want posting (FI Entry) in year 2010 as well? If no then just change the dep rate in asset master and its effect will be restrospective

    If you want posting in year 2010, even if we manage to open asset fiscal year we'll have to carry forward balances which will change already finalized books of accounts and strictly not advisable

    Hope this helps

    Thank You
