calculation of depreciation and interest for a particular asset class

Hi,

I have a problem with the calculation of depreciation and interest for a particular asset class. The assets are financial leases. The depreciation key defined is LEAS. The following are the attributes of this key:

Dep/int phase base met dec-bal prd cont mult lvl chn ov

Ord.depreciation 1 0011 001 006 001 5

Ord.depreciation 2 0002 001 003 003

Interest 1 0028 001 003 010

An example of an asset is:

Aquisition value: 1041552.71 (as migrated on 01.04.2007)

Ordinary dep already posted: 56243.88

Net book value: 985308.83

Scrap Value:729086.90

Useful life: 50 years

Expired useful life: 9 years 1 month

Remaining useful life: 40 years 11 months.

Depreciation start date: 28.03.1998

Interest calculation start date:30.03.1997

Depreciation calculated by the system:6261.83

Interest calculated in the year:15682.68

I'm not able to undersatnd on what basis the system calculated the interest. I will be thankful if anyone can help me resolve this. An early reply will be greatly appreciated as I'm facing major problems due to this issue.

    Hi Mahesh,

    As per my analysis of the case the interest rates are as under

    Acq. Year Int.Percent

    9999 4 01 10.%

    9999 7 01 5.%

    9999 25 01 2.5%

    9999 999 12 01 2.5%

    As per this the Acquisition value less the Scrap Value Rs.312,465.00 @ 2.5% p.a will be Rs. 7811.64.

    Based on the above you analyse for which period interest is calculated.

    Hope it will help.

    Regards,

    Vijay
