Shutdown tic field


Hi experts;

     I need to stop depreciation run for some fixed assets.

At AS05 it blocks the asset from Acquisition only, so it is not the case at all because even if the Asset has been blocked for acquisition it will still be able to run depreciation over it.

I found many treads on the forms regarding that issue and as far I found and understood that best way is to set the Dep. Key for YES at the bottom selection Shutdown then on the Assets Master data to tic the field for ((Asset Shutdown)).

but I have two concerns regarding such solution which are:

1. Is that solution is permanent or temporary? in another words, if someone removed the tick from the field Asset Shutdown and we run depreciation, a depreciation will be calculated for that asset?

2. some colleagues on the forums discussed something related to dates for the Shutdown. but I found that there is no date interval anywhere to let the shutdown related to a certain date interval. so please advice do I need to mention any date, or the shutdown will be effective from certain date like Deactivation Date, or Value Date or any else date, or just whenever I tick the field for ((Asset Shutdown)) there will be no Post for depreciation will take place over such Asset?

3. In generally, is there any else configuration or Setup at the Master Data should be done to stop Dep. Run over the assets other than the field ((Asset Shutdown))?

Thanks in advance;

Kind regards;

Ahmad Mahmud;

    Hi Ahmed

    regarding your question about asset shutdown:

    Is that solution is permanent or temporary? in another words, if someone removed the tick from the field Asset Shutdown and we run depreciation, a depreciation will be calculated for that asset?

    - No its temporary it can be changed and allow asset to start deprecation again its depend on interval date of shut down and interval date of begin deprecation again.


    2. some colleagues on the forums discussed something related to dates for the Shutdown. but I found that there is no date interval anywhere to let the shutdown related to a certain date interval. so please advice do I need to mention any date, or the shutdown will be effective from certain date like Deactivation Date, or Value Date or any else date, or just whenever I tick the field for ((Asset Shutdown)) there will be no Post for depreciation will take place over such Asset?

    - there are bottom " more Interval" in this screen you can determine which period you need the asset to be shut down like below screen.. as you  may notice that i shutdown deprecation in oct. and start it again in nov. by adding interval for oct and mark the interval as shutdown at the far right of the screen .


    the shut down tick is on Main asset level if you applied concept of main asset and sub number..


    when i run T-code AFAB there are no Deprecation posted in Oct and again i run it in Nov. deprecation start posting again


    Hope this information helps you..

      Hi Mahmoud;

      It's pleasure to me to discuss sap issues with you because of your good experience and good way of analyzing the issue.


      1. Option is the ideal but because Vendor has been invoiced and the PO and invoices to be cancelled are many and each invoice and PO are including many Assets not all of them are required to be returned so I actually preferred to avoid such standard scenario.


      What I have done that I made AVABN  Retirement and then the offset account to be closed in expense.


      However it's not standard scenario but it is working and fulfilling the aim.


      Thank you very much


      Kind regards
