Problem: Parallel Ledger integrated with asset accounting

Hello collegues,

we have a little probelm concerning the leading ledger in connection with the leading depreciation area in asset accounting.

The situation:

General Accounting:

SAP says the leading ledger should be assigned to the accounting regulation of the concern.

So far so good.

Asset accounting:

Here you are told that the leading depreciation area 01 must be assigned to the local accounting regualtion.

But what have to be done in the following situation:

concern: accounting regulation HGB -> assigned to leading ledger 0L

company code 1000 (Germany) has to report like HGB

company code 2000 (Hungary) has to report HU-GAAP

Means: in asset accounting depreciation area 01 for comopany code 1000 with HGB fits

depreciation area 01 for companny code 2000 with HU-GAAP doesnt fit.

How to handle it? This scenario is nowhere explained in SAP Help.

Hope you understand what I mean.

    You need to post these deprecation areas to other ledgers (non-leading ledgers).

    Please check the configuration setting OADB and explore further.

    • Hi Madhusoodanan,

      so you mean that all company codes which have another local accounting regulation can be assigned to the 01 depreciation area, but in OADB it must be assigned to another (non-leading) ledger? Means as well that for these local depreciation areas there is no realtime integration with CO. Right.

      In OADB - there are 2 evaluation plans.

      First evaluation plan

      01 HGB - assigned to leading ledger 0L

      04 IFRS - assigned to non-leading ledger 1L

      Second evaluation plan

      01 HUNGARIAN GAAP - assigned to leading ledger 0L

      05 IFRS - assigned to non-leading ledger 1L

      Thanks in advance.

    Dear all,

    We got similar issues. I searched threads in community network, all are talking about different amount under different GAAP or different currencies. I also searched around SAP help documents, some say that different fiscal year variant is allowed under parallel ledger accounting but the period end date must same as the company code.

    Does it mean you can apply different fiscal year variant but still the same period end cut-off date? Then what is the point to having different fiscal year variant?

    In our case, we have leading and non-leading ledgers with different period end cut-off date (e.g. one is ended 2ndFeb and the other is ended 31stJan) but same depreciation amount. So In FI-AA, does it allow different fiscal year variant with different period end date and how?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hi Nico,

      There are some messages from the forum mentioned that posting depreciation with different period end date is a limitation in SAP base on SAPNET notes 844029 and 1175751.

      Did you find some ways to overcome this as you say "yes"? It would be great help if someone has the solution.
