Depn start date

i have acquired a asset which needs to be depreciated for full year. For example, if i purchased asset on 4th Novemeber, the depreciation is to be calculated for full year. How to do it ?

One alternative is to specify depreciation start date as 1st April (1st day of financial) in depreciation start date in asset master record.

I do not want to use this option. I want to know whether is it possible to specify anywhere that depn should start from 1st day of financial year inspite of capitalization date / depreciation start date is in middle of the year.

    Hi

    Try to define the same in 'Period control method' in AFAMP and then assign this method in your depreciation key in AFAMA

    Thank You,

    Hi,

    Please check the following path.

    SPRO AA TRANSACTIONS Specify How Default Asset Value Date is Determined Define variant for determining default asset value date Check in Current-value depreciation is set 6 or not.

    NOTE: DON'T CHANGE IN DEV, QULTY AND PROD SERVER, ONCE U CHANGE THIS IT WILL EFFCT TO ALL THE ASSETS. PLEASE CHECK IN SANDBOX, IF IT IS WORKING FINE GO AHEAD.

    regards,

    Gopi.P

    • Intangible Assets Purchased on 2nd february 2009 - Rs.30,00,000.

      Capitalized date & depreciation date - 2nd February 2009.

      Depreciation Key: ZT06 - On basis of life which is three years.

      Now for the year 31st MArch 2009, entire Rs.10,00,000 (Rs. 30,00,000 / 3 years of life) must be charged as depreciation. But SAP is calculatng depreciation from 2nd Febraury to 31st MArch.

      It is taking Rs.10 Lacs properly. But it is posting on the basis of purchase date, depn start date. I do not want to use depn start date as 1st April 2008 as it be before capitalization date. Please suggest an alternative.
