Catch-up depreciation of prior years in the next month?

Hi,

We have an asset that was aquired years ago. The useful life has been shortened which increases the depreciation. The depreciation is calculated: APC / useful life.

The depreciation of the closed years that should be higher now is not depreciated and remains obviously on the asset. Once the end of the useful life is reached the missing depreciation is posted in one sum.

However, business would like to have it posted in the next month instead of at the end of life. Can anyone recommend what we need to change?

Thanks,

Joachim

    Joachim - this is what adjustments like ABAA (unplanned depreciation) are for - please ask your asset accountant to try it.

    • Hi - it depends on the configuration of the depreciation key. But from what you are describing it sounds like an unplanned deprecation posting; I recommend trying the transaction in your test box and letting your accountants view the results.

    Hi,

    You may consider to extend the useful life of that asset.

    Thanks
