Adjust remaining useful life

449 Views

Dear SAP Experts,

I have the following requirement and would like to get your advice if there is any better way to set the configuration , instead of manual update in the remaining useful life.

Acquisition cost @July 2014 : $12,000

Depreciation start date : Jul 2014

Useful life : 10 years (120months)

Depreciation cost : $100/month

Net Book Value @Nov 2015 = Acquisition cost - depreciation cost for 17months (Jul 14 to Nov 15) = $10,300

Additional cost @Dec 2015 : $6,000 (Y) --> different year from acquisition year

Revised Cost : NBV @Nov 2015 + Additional cost (Y) = $16,300

Revised Depreciation : Revised cost / (120months - (17months + 1month) = $159.80

The current configuration as below.

Base method : 0011 (ordinary percentage from useful life)

Multilevel method : per 1, base value 24 , rem.llife active

Smoothing : active

To calculate the revised depreciation with additional 1 month, I have tried to change the remaining useful life in asset master data

from 17 months to 18 months.

My question : Is there any other better solution, instead of updating the remaining useful life manually ?

Appreciation your input and advice.


Thank you.

Lynn
