How to map new depreciation calculation method ?

Hi ALL,

Please guide me how to map new depreciation calculation method in existing SAP FI AA module.

As per revised method we have to charge depreciation as per below steps-

1.Each asset to be depreciated up to 90% of its original cost.

2.When depreciation reaches 70% of cost of asset on the basis of depreciation Rates defined for each asset class, system should calculate the balance amount to be depreciated (i.e. 20%) and apportion the same over the balance useful life of that asset.

3.Once depreciation reached at 90% of Cost of asset, No depreciation should be calculate further.

4. In existing method depreciation is calculated upto 90% of original cost of asset at rates specified to each asset class.

Please Guide on the same.

Thanks and Regards,

Manjusha G.

    Hello manjusha,

    For a depreciation key, please try using the Base values method 27 (i suppose) this calculates the depreciation on the NBV. The deprecation is calculated only upto 90% if you maintain Residual value in asset master (Calculation haooends on 90%).

    Let us know if my understanding is correct and whether if this works.

    Regards,

    Hi Manjusha,

    You can assign 0.3 in changeover % in phase 1 among other configs like your base method,period control,multi level etc.

    It will calculate depreciation upto 70% then it will changeover to next phase i.e phase 2.

    Create phase 2 as per the base method,multilevel,period control etc for what depreciation % you want in this phase

    Enter 0.1 in the changeover % field in phase 2.

    It will calculate depreciation upto 90%.

    Then Create phase 2 again as per the base method,multilevel,period control etc for what depreciation % (In your case zero depreciation) you want in this phase.

    Hope it solves.

    Regards,
