Downpayments on Assets - not to capitalise


Our client requirement is.

We raised a PO with Account assignment Category A (Asset) and we select Internal Order (linked to IM Position)

We then raise DPR and make down payment on the PO.

Our requirement is . This Down payment should not post to Asset or capitalized.

Pls advice which way or which technical settings that need to setup to achieve this please.

Thanks you

    Hi Gopi

    I dont prefer to update down payments to asset master.. For that

    1. Create a New Field Status group as a copy of G067 and assign Z067 to your Vendor related recon accounts... (Special GL A)

    Supress the Asset No in this Field Status Group

    2. Now when you create a down payment request in F-47, you will get an error F5 378...

    3. Supress this error message in OBA5 - Enter Work area as F5 in OBA5 and supress the message no 378 to W

    With this Down payments wont post to Asset.. This is one of my favorite solutions... May be I should file a patent 😊

    Dear Gopi,

    We can stop capitalizing Asset while Down payment, go to T-code AO73 and find the transaction type for Down payment(180 in our case) and remove the check box "Capitalize fixed asset" so that Asset will not capitalize.

    • Hi Lakshmaih

      This solution has a limitation.. System will post Down payment to Asset, but not capitalize it

      Now, assume you post invoice later on and forget to clear the Down payment.. In that case, depreciation will be calculated on Invoice Amount + Down Payment amount

      In next period, when you clear the down payment, system would adjust the depreciation

      So, I feel, its better not to update DP to assets, the way Chandu wants
