India WDV method calculation result is wrong, different from the formula of WDV

Hi everyone,

Now our India branch company using WDV depreciation method, I already configured WDV depreciation method in SAP, please refer below pictures, but calculation result of WDV isn’t right.

Assets value 10000, scarp percentage is 5%, useful life=60 years, WDV depreciation method

First Year depreciation value=10000*(1-(0.05/1)^(1/60))=487

But SAP calculation result is 462.68

system version and capture refer below

    Hi,

    You have maintained country specific base method, so check with your ABAPer to check exit maintained against the method.

    Refer to SAP Note 2052506 and check have you activated the Badi as per the Note and corrections are copied in the badi method.
    Check the base method whether country specific method is called for depreciation calculation.

    Also, implement SAP Notes 2066260 and 2069378.

    • Hi Ma Larry,

      The new depreciation key can be used to achieve the new depreciation WDV logic for Indian companies act 2013.
      However, the other mentioned notes are program errors which needs to be implemented. Still do you have issues in depreciation calculation?
