AO90 - different chart of depreciaton

Hi.

I have a concern, we have several in SAP chart of depreciaton, one for each country (we have the same system various company code located in different countries), also all company code share the same chart of accounts.

Recently implemented IFRS for Colombia and hired an outside consulting firm. After consulting made changes in the parameterization, we noticed that the account determination (AO90) is totally dependent; ie, if I change the account "Acquisition and production costs" for chart of depreciaton "1CO", chart of Accounts "PUC", Account determination "1520", Real depreciation area "1"; then changes also, the account "Acquisition and production costs" for chart of depreciaton "1EC", chart of Accounts "PUC", Account determination "1520", Real depreciation area "1".

The consulting firm confirmed to us that this happens because all companies share the chart of accounts and is as it should be. Is this correct ?. can achieve again independence in account determination different chart of depreciaton ?. Why before there were independent and not now?

I appreciate any help. Thank you.

    Hi Leudis,

    AO90 configuration is depending on the combination of your Chart of Depreciation + Chart of Accounts + Depreciation Area

    If you have a different chart of depreciation, then obviously you can maintain different GL accounts for those combination.

    For example your COD is XXXX and your COA is YYYY and your Depreciation area is 01 and your GL account is 123456 for APC

    You can have different GL account for example 678901 for your COD ZZZZ and your COA YYYY and for your depreciation area 01

    Hope this clarifies.
