Post missed depreciation for previous period. Is ABAA an option?

Hello,

Last month i have capitalized assets after the depreciation run, hoping that in the next period the whole YTD amounts to be posted.

Unfortunately it didn't worked. I was wandering what are my options now, because now i have differences between GL and asset sub-ledger?

I was reading about ABAA but i have never used it before. Can i post with it different amounts in the different ledgers (0L, 1L)?

KR,

Ivo

    Hi Ivo

    1. Can you still open 12/2015 period and re-execute AFAB in REPEAT mode? If yes, that's the best option

    2. For some reason if you cant do (1), then you will have problems doing AJAB for 2015, because of unposted planned depreciation..

    If there is planned depreciation on the asset which you cant post in that period, use the program offered by SAP note 29694 and delete the unposted planned depreciation.. This will make the Planned dep in AA = Posted Depreciation in FI

    You can then do FY 2015 close in AA (AJAB)

    3. Post the amount that you deleted as Unplanned dep in 2016.. But remember that it does not impact the NBV at the start of FY 2016.. So, if your depreciation is based on NBV (Base Value = 24 in Multi level Method), you will have to post another Unplanned depreciation towards the end of 2016 to bring the NBV at the Start of 2017 to what it should be

    • Hi Ivo

      Posting ABAA looks OK

      But, If you want to post different amounts in 0L and 1L ledgers, you will have to define a Custom Trans Type (Copy of 640) and restrict it to the respective depreciation area

      With this, your posting will get limited only to 1L ledger.. Otherwise, it hits all the ledgers

      Hope am clear

    Hi Ivo,

    If you have capitalized the assets after dep.run, then have you checked the dep.start date of the assets? If the dep.start date is in future date, then it wont post depreciation.

    Hello,

    The issue is that the settlement was done to an existing final asset (as an addition). I think i can't change the depreciation start date of an asset, that has already been depreciated.

    Do you know if ABAA you can define in which ledger (0L, 1L) you want to make the posting?

    Regards,

    Ivo

    • Hi Former Member,

      It will post to all ledgers. If you want to post to specific ledger, then you have created a separate dep.area for non-leading ledger. Then only it possible to specific dep.area. However, you can limit transaction type for specific dep.area in OAXE. After done this you can use the transaction type in ABAA for specific ledger.

    Hallo Ivo,

    I agree with what Mr Mukthar said.

    Please check when your Asset's depreciation start date. (AS03 -> Dep.Area Tab)

    If your asset depreciation start date is on the same periode as your last depreciation posting run,
    then your GL and Asset sub-ledger will have a differences.


    Your GL Balance wont record any depreciation for your new capitalized Assets.

    but your Asset sub-ledger will consider for a planned depreciations posting for your new capitalized Assets.


    Best Regards,

    Hi,

    If you have not run the depreciation for current period try a repeat run for previous period.
