SLM depreciation taking into account revaluation and unplanned depreciation

174 Views Last edit Oct 09, 2017 at 03:46 PM 4 rev

Hi Experts,

I am looking for some suggestions on the appropriate way to configure a depreciation key that calculates on a straight line based on the useful life of the asset, with base calculation being the acquisition value and taking into account value adjustments or unplanned depreciation.

If I have an asset capitalized on 01.01.2017 with an acquisition value of 10,000 and a useful life of 10 years. I would like depreciation of 1,000 until 2027. However, if there is unplanned depreciation in next year of -1,000. I would like the system to recalculate the depreciation so that the full useful life is realized.

Currently, my custom key calculates based on the original acquisition value and does not recalculate when there are any value adjustments.

I am using multilevel method 1, remaining life indicator not ticked.

Which are the correct settings to achieve the desired results?
Thank you for any suggestions;
