Does SAP ByD supports the initial transactional data migration of the Existing Lease contracts ?

Hello Experts,

Please I need to confirm if there is any possible workaround to migrate the transactional balances associated to existing Lease Contracts at the migration date (ROU Asset/Liabilities + Cumulated depreciation).

Business scenario:

The customer has ongoing Lease Contracts at the time of the SAP ByD GO LIVE , I have already migrated the GL Account balances (Trial Balance, including ROU assets, liabilities, cumulated depreciation) this entry has generated an impact on the 99004000 - Initial Data Carry Forward Fixed Asset Account.

I was expecting to clear out this balance by migrating the Lease contracts, however I realized the Lease contract migration does not affect the 99004000 - Initial Data Carry Forward Fixed Asset Account and does not include the cumulated depreciations.

I have also try by creating the existing lease contracts manually but I got the same accounting results.

So I conclude that the historical data migration of pre-existing lease contracts (prior to Go Live) is not supported by SAP. So the customer is forced to manage 2 process: 1) Manually (via JEV) for the pre- existing Lease contracts 2) Through the Lease contract management module for new contracts started after the Go Live. Do I am right? Is there any workaround that will let me use all the automated functions included in the Lease contract management module for existing lease contracts?

What is the process recommended by SAP?

I would really appreciate if you can provide your feedback.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks in advance.
