Dear Experts,

We are configuring a new Company Code in our SAP system and we are thinking to active parallel currency on FI.

Is it required to active parallel currency in Asset Accounting too? The thing is that we are already using the same Chart of Depreciation in other Company Codes and I am not sure the consequences that it could cause in these company codes that are already in production.

Thanks in advance and best regards

when you activate Parallel Currency in FI, you need to define a Depreciation Area for the same Currency in Asset Accounting.

This is mandatory.

And for those asset already in production, you need to run Depreciation Area update with value Initial .

It will update automatically for all existing Assets.

For a safe side, take a Copy Of production and try this scenario there before moving to Production System/

Thanks for the answer.

The problema is that this chart of depreciation is being using for another company which has not activated parallel currency, so could it be caused any inconsistencies?

For instance:

CoCd 0001 witthout parallel currency --> Chart of Depreciation 0001 (Company Code already in production)

CoCd 0002 With parallel currency --> Chart of depreciation 0001 (New Company Code)





I dont think so cause Currency settings are under COmpany Code. Right ??
