SAP BYD Balance Carryforward with No depreciation run or changing any posting in 2015


We would like to run Trial Balance Report but we get error message e.g.

100100/IFRS: No Balance carry forward since 2015, only current year values shown

When we try to run New Balance Carryforward for Company ID e.g. 100100 we get Error message (Depreciation pending for more than 9 fixed assets for fiscal year 2015)

We refer SAP Case Document ( 1675965 Error Message: Closing of <Fiscal Year> not Possible, Depreciation Run has to be )

but no helps to resolve our issue ... as We would like to close 2015 ASAP on urgent basis but we do not want to change any posting in 2015 as it is already published & communicated ... Please let us know how to get 2015 period close .. balance carryforward done without affecting any fixed asset depriciation .. or any value changing in 2015 ... in case SAP says we have to post .. then we may post any figure in 2017 ....instead of 2015

SAP Support has provided no help and requested to post issue here to seek SAP BYD expert community help.

    Hi Rakesh,

    You mentioned that you do not want to post anything in 2015, so then go to those affected fixed assets and check if you need those pending depreciations to be posted or not, If no more postings are needed then you may have to adjust the life cycle of the fixed assets such that no more depreciation is needed. Then perform the Balance carry forward.

    Hi Rakesh,

    Based on your question, yes the forum is the correct channel for requests of this nature rather than incident reporting.

    You mentioned that you want to close 2015 without further postings since the figures have been published and communicated. However, why the fiscal year figures have been signed off without fiscal year closing procedured in the ERP system? In ByD you avail of a closing cockpit which has all the required steps and checks to be performed before the fiscal year is fully closed and blocked. To post the planned depreciation of all fixed assets, for example, is a mandatory step for fiscal year closure that you cannot skip.

    You can check the "Depreciation" report and compare the Posted and the Planned depreciation for all the assets. The posted and planned must match by the end of the fiscal year, otherwiese the differece shall be posted.

    In cases where the asset does not require the depreciation, you can specify this in a valuation interval and make the Planned Depreciation to become zero. In order to do so, open the fixed asset Master Data -> Asset Valuation-> Valuation Intervals. Here, you can create a valuation interval for 2015 where no depreciation is required. For example, you add a new row and create a valuation interval in 2015 with depreciation method = 0000 - No automatic depreciation. With this depreciation method, the Planned Depreciation value becomes 0,00 in the depreciaiton report. Nevertheless, bear in mind that you are changing the depreciation for an specific valuation interval (2015), which may affect the depreciation calculation for the subsequent periods (2016, 2017...) since the system needs to proportionally calculate and evenly distribute the depreciation value.

    Best Regards,
