Depreciation Calculation

Hello Experts,

I am aware that depreciation calculation of assets depends on the depreciation key configuration in AFAMA(base method, declining method, multilevel ,etc) but i would like to understand how SAP calculates the dep value per period based on the methods defined per dep key. In program RATRACE0, i can see the values that made up the dep amount. How does the percentage rate gets calculated? How is dep period derived (what does 2/12 means)?

Are there any FM's that i can debug to determine how SAP calculates the depreciation amount?

Would appreciate if someone could enlighten me with this.

Thank you!

    Hi Jack

    If your dep key is based on explicit % then that becomes your rate of depreciation

    if your dep key is based on total useful life, then the % is derived from total useful life. Eg- if TUL is 10 years, rate of depreciation is 10%

    if your key is based on Rem. Useful life, then Sap calculates the rate of depreciation at every period end based on RUL. ,

    In Aw01n you can click on one of the icons and it shows you a detailed explanation of how the depreciation was calculated
