Added dep area

Hi all,

after go live, my client wanted to add new depreciation rule, name is "Excess Tax Depreciation" (french rule).

Based on existing dep area 02 (legal) , in august, i added new dep area 04 (tax) and 11 (= 04-02). Differences between dep area 04 and 02 has to be posted in GL.

Pb : first depreciation run, amount calculated is not right, due to the example below. Dep area 02 is activated since may (amount already posted). Dep area 04 and 11 activated in august in test environment.

Depreciation amount AS IS :

-


area 02----area 04---area 11

posted--


may--50
0
--


0

posted--


june--50

posted--


july---50
0

0

to be postedaugust50--


4 X100----350

350 = (4 x 100) - 50.

4 x 100 = dep from may to august for dep area 04

50 = SAP only takes into account dep amount calculted and not posted for august in dep area 02.

Depreciation amount TO BE :

-


area 02----area 04---area 11

posted--


may--50

to be postedaugust50--


4 X100----200

200 = (4x100) - (4x50)

Total of dep calculated in dep area 04 has to be compared to total dep calculated (and posted from may to july) in dep area 02.

200 is my right amount to be posted through dep area 11.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Lilian,

    I think you used the option AFBN - New Depreciation Area for filling the new depreciation area:

    Did you use leave values initil?

    When you copy the depreciation values you can get these values. The depreciation for the current fiscal year should be corrected in the first depreciation run but not for old fiscal years.

    The best is to look in AW01N - Asset Explorer what is happening in these months.

    When the amount are compleet different you have the option to upload the values with AS91 on the existing assets or you can create a transaction type to post the values only in area 04

      Paul,

      Dep area 11 is a derived dep area : 04 - 02

      Dep area 02 (legal) post in GL

      Dep area 04 (tax) doesn't post

      Dep area 11 (excess tax) post in GL: 04 - 02.

      Depreciation amount calculated in dep area 02 are already posted in GL. Now i have to post excess tax (from may to august) through dep area 11.

      My "excess tax" depreciation (dep area 11) will be OK only if differences calculated between 04 and 02 are based on the same period space, actually it's not the case:

      dep amount from may to august in dep area 04 (calculated in august) - dep amount in august only in dep area 02.

      and i want : dep amount from may to august in dep area 04 (calculated in august) - dep amount from may to august in dep area 02.

      Hope i 'm clear.

      Thanks for your assistance.

    Hi,

    we tried to launch Tcode AFBN & AFAR, in order to reach right calculation in the new dep area 11 for august period. These two Tcode had no effect on my issue.

    Do you have idea?

    Many thanks
