Could not close Fiscal Year.

Hello Sap ByD users,

Could you please guide me know to close a Fiscal Year. Here is my situation:

- I released sale order then Customer Demand.

- From Delivery Proposal, I do "Create Outbound Delivery and Goods Issue" and I got this error: "... blocked by accounting"

I do some searching and most of topic tell me that because of Fiscal Year.

Because ByD allows only 3 fiscal years in active, I had to close one. But I got this error when i try to close:

Please help me pass by this.

Thank you so much!

Cuong Nguyen.

    Hi Cuong,

    Please see blog : https://blogs.sap.com/2015/06/26/balance-carry-forward-and-closing-fiscal-year/

    When Balance carry-forward run is executed, In some cases, system raise the Error message : The balance carry forward is not possible. Execute Depreciation under Fixed Assets.

    While performing the Balance Carry forward, System triggers the check to verify if the depreciation run has been performed for the fiscal year to be carried forward. It is likely that some assets still need to be depreciated in the year you are trying to close period 12 or the full fiscal year itself.

    Fixed assets should be depreciated for all the valuation views of all the set of books assigned to the company for which you want to close the period 12 or the Fiscal year. In other words the posted depreciation amount should equal the planned depreciation for all the valuation views of all the set of books assigned to the company for which you want to close the period 12 or the fiscal year.


    To check if any depreciation (irrespective of the valuation views) has been missed in the fiscal year you want to close period 12 of the fiscal year itself.

    1) You can run the Depreciation report available in the Fixed Asset work center to compare the Planned Depreciation and the Posted Depreciation.

    1. Go to the Fixed Asset work center.
    2. Go to the Reports view and List sub-view.
    3. Select the Depreciation report.
    4. Enter the Variables to run the report.
    • Company: enter the company for which you want to perform the closing process.
    • Set of Books: you need to enter a set of books assigned to the company (you need to run the report for all set of books assigned to the concerned company, but you only can enter 1 set of books at a time)
    • Valuation View ID: you need to enter a valuation view assigned to the set of books entered previously (you need to run the report for all valuation views assigned to the entered set of books, but you only can enter 1 valuation view at a time).
    • Accounting Period/Year: enter the fiscal year you want to close or for which you want to close the period 12.
  • On running the report for the variables entered, change the default view, Planned Values, of the report to the view Posted / Planned Values.
  • Compare the posted depreciation amount and the planned depreciation amount for the selection entered in the report variables.
  • If you notice a difference between the posted depreciation amount and the planned depreciation amount in the Depreciation report, a Depreciation run has to be performed in update mode to post the initially missing depreciation.

    Optionally you can drill down to know which assets have not been depreciated by adding the Fixed Asset field from the Not Currently Shown area.
