Depreciation on the last period

Good morning,

In our SAP System, some company codes have a non-calendar fiscal years (July to June with four special periods).

There is something unclear in the depreciation of some assets:

For example, we have an asset with depreciation key ZH3, useful life 6 years, Ordinary Depreciation Start date 01.07.2011 and Exp. Useful life 5 years.

Base Methods

0014 Ordinary: explicit percentage (after end of life)

Multi-Level Methods

Multi-Level Methods ZH3:

  1. Acq. Year 9999 – Years 1 – Base Value 3 (Replacement value) – Percent 20,0000 – Reduc perc rate 50,0000 – Valid from 2 (From ordinary depreciation start date), period control method: according to fiscal years (yes).
  2. Acq. Year 9999 – Years 999 – Base Value 3 (Replacement value) – Percent 20,0000 – Reduc perc rate 0,0000 – Valid from 2 (From ordinary depreciation start date), period control method: according to fiscal years (yes).

Year 2016 (from 01.07.2016 to 30.06.2017) should be the last year of depreciation.

We have correct depreciation calculated from 2011 to 2015, but in 2016 I expected a depreciation calculated form period 01 (July 2016) to period 12 (June 2017), but the System has calculated a depreciation only for 6 months, from 01.07.2016 to 31.12.2016.

Could it be a program error or something wrong in the customizing?

I have read some articles from SAP Community and it seems that the solution is to activate the Smoothing indicator. Is it correct?

Thank you

Kind Regards

Antonietta
