Asset legacy migration problem


Our fiscal year variant is: Oct - Sept, 4 special periods

Transfer date: 30 Nov 2013

Last period posted in previous system: 2014/02

In the 1st month after migration to SAP, which is December, the depreciation calculated 3 months of depreciation but the planned depreciation for January and onwards calculated correctly at 1 month.


asset acquisition date: 01 May 2013

depreciation start date: 01 May 2013

acquisition cost: 30,000

expensed useful life after upload : 5 months (it didn't seem to recognize that the expensed useful life should be 7 months as of December).

depreciation key: straight line 20% (Z20S)

accum depr from legacy: 3,517.74 (same as in AS93)

net book value: 26,482.26 (from AS93)

ord. dep posted: 1,500.26 (from AS93)

So, i'm just expecting at least 500AUD planned depreciation. But in period 3, 3 months have been calculated as depreciation.

I would greatly appreciate it if somebody can point me to the right direction why I am having 3 months of depreciation in my 1st month after the upload and why I can't see the line "legacy asset transfer" in "Posted" tab in AW01N which I normally see in my previous uploads. This is the first time that I have uploaded for my current company. Please see attached file.

Looking forward to hear from you all.

Thanks and regards,

    Acquiistion value : 30000 (AS93)

    Accumulated depreciation legacy :3517.74 ( From AS93)

    Net Book value 26,482.36( AS93)

    Ordinary depreciation posted : 1500.26 (AS93)

    Transfer date is 30/Nov/2014 i.e Two months depreciation(1000) you need to provide in AS91 as a ordinary depreciation for the current financial year 2014.

    change the ordinary depreciation amount from 1500.26 to 1000.00 in AS91 legacy upload. let them system calculate depreciation for Dec as you mentioned transfer date is 30/Nov/2014.

    i think it should work..

    Hi Tess,

    It is a SAP standard to make value adjustment only for current year.

    Your current year 2013 Oct to 2013 December (3 months) depreciation has been posted correctly.

    Also you havent used Smoothing option in OAYR T code thats why 3 months depreciation posted in one month. If you have ticked the Smoothing in OAYR then the 1000 USD will be apportioned into remaining 10 months of current year.

    If you want to post depreciation for previous year's periods(May to Sep), you can use ABAA-Unplanned depreciation with TTY-640.

    Hope it solves.
