Business Transaction Type for Fixed Assets SAP Business ByDesign

Greetings Community,

SAP Business ByDesign

We have a request from auditors to define, what each business transaction type means in Fixed Assets - line items report.

(“ True addition” vs. “Transfer from CIP to FA”) and so on?

Please help me to find documentation where I could read on each transaction type.

Thank you

    Hello Alex,

    Could you please explain the details bit more.

    In the fixed asset line items report, Business transaction type would refer to the posting type

    Some of the value would be :

    1) Supplier invoice -> Acquisition posted via Supplier invoice

    2) Goods receipt from Supplier --> Asset created using Goods Receipt

    3) Manual Posting of Acquisition cost -> If acquisition is posted manually

    4) Periodic fixed asset valuation --> Automatic Depreciation

    5) transfer posting -> when you transfer balance of asset to another asset

    and so on

    I think What you mentioned relating to true addition and transfer from CIP to FA, can be better classified using movement types.

    Can you please check field G/L Movement type. (Help Document : Movement Types)

    • Thank you Harshal.

      We've got the answer from our consulting firm.

      I will post the answer; thus, the community will be aware if needed.

      1. Fixed Asset Retirement Without Revenue - The life cycle of a fixed asset ends with its retirement from the fixed assets portfolio. Retirement postings distinguish between the sale and scrapping of a fixed asset.

      2. Transfer of Fixed Asset Values - Special transactions include the transfer of parts of or entire individual materials, or the transfer of hidden reserves.

      3. Manual Posting of Acquisition Costs - The manual acquisition posting function enables you to post acquisition costs directly to a fixed asset without using the procurement process.

      4. Supplier Invoice - Manually post an incoming invoice without reference to a purchase order and without goods receipt

      5. Transfer of Current-Year Acq Costs - Transfer postings transfer the acquisition costs of an individual material to a new or existing fixed asset

      6. Goods Receipt from Supplier - The process from purchase order through goods receipt to posting the incoming invoice

      7. Goods Receipt/Invoice Receipt Clearing -GR/IR clearing runs determine the difference and correct the acquisition costs of the fixed asset. If there is a difference to the acquisition costs capitalized for the fixed asset, resulting from paying the payable with a cash discount, for example, these costs are also adjusted by the GR/IR clearing run.

      8. Manual Revaluation of Fixed Asset - To revaluate a fixed asset at fair market value, you can use the function to post revaluation manually.
      Fixed assets are included in the fixed assets balance and over time are usually subject to depreciation, write-up, or revaluation .
