Asset: changeover method at end of useful life


I try to understand how depreciation key is working at the end of the useful life of an asset.

The depreciation key I am currently testing is straight line (with "dep. to the day") and has the following characteristics:

Base meth / Decl / Perd ctrl / Multi l / Changeover method

N Ord.depreciation 1 0011 / 001 / 002/ 012 / 5

N Ord.depreciation 2 0007 / 001 / 002/ 012

  • Base method 0011: % from useful life

  • Base method 0007: % from useful life (after end)

  • Declining method 001: 0%

  • Period control method: 002 means

/04 (first year convention at 1/2 year start date)

/06 ( at start of year)

/02 (pro rata up to mid-period at period start date)

/02 (pro rata up to mid-period at period start date)

  • Multi-level method: 012 (validity from ordinary depreciation start date) with level

Acq. year / Year / Period / Base val / Rem. life / Reduct.

9999 / 999 / 12 / 01 / 0,0000 / 0,0000

The asset I am looking at uses the depreciation key described above and has the following characteristics:

capitalization date: 17.01.2005

ordinary depreciation start date: 17.01.2005

useful life : 3 years

APC value: 7.031,57

Accum. deprec. till end 2007: 6.928,83-

Posted depreciation in January 2008: 102,46-

Nothing else will be posted in 2008. The asset is nearly fully depreciated in 2008 but the remaining value 0,28 will be depreciated in 2009. Why is the leftover sent to 2009? I thought the depreciation will continue after January 2008 because of the changeover method "5".

Could anyone help me on this issue?

    The Base method 0007 is responsible for the dep posted after the end of usefull life.

    Check the tab Treatment of planed life end. If this yes the system continue the dep after the life .
