      Dear Expert,


      As per new company act depreciation calculation in WDV method is changed now.

      We are having WDV/reducing balance method for depreciation. There was different WDV depreciation rates

      defined in the Companies Act for different asset classes.

      Now new Companies Act, 2013 has defined useful life of different classes of assets

      e.g. Plant & Machinery 15 years, Building 30 years, computer 3 years, etc. Residual value shall be 5% of acquisition value.

      Example: Net Book Value 10000 on 31.03.2014

      Residual Value 5% & Remaining useful life 10 years

      Dep Percentage to cal by system = 1-((5/100)^(1/10)) = 25.89%


      this percentage can be different for remaining years of same asset.


      Can you suggest A method so which would automatically calculate the depreciation rates based on the useful life entered on each assets in Sap Business one 9.0?


      Please Suggest any solution.


      Thanks in advance.
