depreciation calculation

Hi,

We are using percentage based depreciation keys for all the assets. If the main asset expired useful life is 4 years for example, if we purchase any new sub assets for the main asset. 1st year the sub asset should get depreciated to the tune of main asset expired useful life.

cap.date acq.val acc.dep net blocl Dep.%

main asset 01.04.05 100000 40000 60000 slm10%

sub asset 01.04.09 10000 400

If the new sub asset purchased on 01.04.09 the 1st year 400+currentyear depreciation should be calculated & posted.

We are using % based depreciation. Kindly help to solve this issue.

Thanks

    Hi,

    this is not possible with standard methods. The system will not "recalculate" and catch-up prior year depreciation.

    Regards,
