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.
