Asset Down Payment for AUC


I am having a query in Asset Down Payment for AUC

I have configured for both Acquisition: down payments and Down-payments clearing account in 'AO90' in asset module.

But I am still not clear why Down-payments clearing account account needs to be configured.

The entry I am getting are

1. F-47 DP request - I enter the Asset number here. Noted item.

2. F-48 -DP- an entry is created as follows:

Vendor Dr 1000

Bank Cr 1000

Acquisition: down payments Dr 1000

Down-payments clearing account Cr 1000

3. Now the Down-payments clearing account shows a credit balance all the time.

How should this be rectified

    Hi Vidya,

    Option 1: When you follow based on your example, ie., asset debited during down payment entry, asset entry will be reversed when you adjust down payment against invoice.

    Option 2: Down payment request and down payment made against AUC asset with reference to Purchase order:

    With reference to PO: Please refer sap note number 310368 valuated goods receipt paragraph and they have clearly mentioned about making down payments against asset/AUC purchase order without getting debited to asset account.

    You have to make F5 378 message number to be a warning message instead of error message and you have to suppress asset related settings in OB41 posting keys 29 and 39. Posting key 39 is useful when you have down payment request.

    If you have done this, then it will show only warning message during down payment that "purchase order is related to asset" and it will not be debited to asset account. Also after following the above steps, it is not necessary for you to give Acquisition: down payments G/L and Down payment clearing G/L in AO90 transaction code.

    Hope this helps. Assign points if useful.
