Company Code (Fusion) Asset Accounting Legacy Migration

Hi SAP Experts

We are going to initiate a project where a company code Y will be fusionated to a company code X

Therefore only company code X will prevail at the end on the month.

This migration is made within the fiscal year (april 2015) with a calenda K4 (january to december)

Some balance migration is planned, however we have the following scenario:

Company code X has asset accounting component working since 2006

Company code Y does not have asset accounting component within SAP, posting are made directly to SAP (and depretiation calculation posting are made outside SAP)

We are planning to "transfer the values" from company code Y -> to the asset acccounting component from company code X

Due theese assets are not "new assets" but "legacy asset" how it should be the right steps?

We have identified two options so far:

a) As a "legacy transfer", (AS91) transaction (create legacy data)

Some SAP documentation refers to take care about the timing to made this; in our case is within the fiscal year

Also a "data transfer date" or "take over date" must be defined on table V_T093C_08 in order to identify a value date for the legacy transfer

IMG > Asset Accounting > Asset Data Transfer > Parameteres for Data Transfer > Date Specification

There are several prerequisites such as company code status allowed for data transfer, set the above date for data transfer and I think also set a period where the legacy company code finish their posting.

We suspect this is the second or third time the company code X has transfer legacy data.

Do you have experience managing this option within SAP?

What issues must be considered

We do not want to impact the existing fixed assets values and previous asset transfers values with our new asset transfer within the fiscal year.

b) As a "acquisition without a vendor" ABZON

I think this option does not required so much customizing, usign this option I think I should put the last value for the legacy asset accounting and set the initiation date for the new depretiation posting accordingly.

I suspect the disadvantage here is do not have a historical data, however may these is the secure path.

I notice using ABZON transaction I need to set an account determination call "Contra account: Acquisition value" that is defined on table V_T095_MASTER or customizing transaction AO90

For this option we are guessing which type account must be.

I think it should be a balance account (due no vendor is implied) however we are not sure about this point

Many thanks for your inputs and ideas

    Hi Fernando Luna

    For my perception, option 1 makes sense because you may need to check historical values as well as depreciation posted in legacy system. As you highlighted, the key point to use AS91 to take over legacy assets are below customizing:

    IMG: Asset Accounting -> Asset Data Transfer -> Parameters for Data Transfer -> Date Specifications ->

    => Specify Transfer Date/Last Closed Fiscal Year
    => Specify Last Period Posted in Prv.System (Transf.During FY)

    Above setting affecting legacy take-over only, it wouldn't affect existing asset including previous taken-over legacy assets. After finishing legacy asset migration, you may need to execute depreciation recalculation at company code level.

    Hope this information is helpful.

    Many thanks George

    Using this IMG options I were able to control:

    - When the transfer date it happen

    - When was the last period posted in the previous system

    While I create the asset legacy (AS91) I also need to update the initial depreciation date on master data in order to start depreciation posting.

    In the take over values I also update the values from initial adquisition and accumulated depreaciation (by valuation area)

    Best Regards
