How to depreciate additional years after end of useful life?

We have a requirement to continue depreciating additional 5 years for motor vehicles (straight-line), after end of useful life (5 years) ie. total 10 years.

Example :

Cost (APC) = 60,000

Annual depreciation = 12,000

Due to revaluations to book area, there are remaining NBV at end of 5 years. This NBV is to continue depreciating additional 5 years (straight line)

We have tried configuring various ways using the following combinations but each time system depreciates 100% in the year after end of life :-

1) explicit percentage (20%)

2) explicit percentage after end of life (20%)

3) phase 2 - within planned life

4) phase 3 - after end of life

Any idea? We do not want to change the useful life in the asset master depreciation area nor use sub-assets.

    important is the setting "Depreciation after end of planned life" in the depr.key.

    Tr AFAMA

    -> Base method

    F1 Help:


    Set this indicator, if you want the system to continue depreciation after the end of the planned useful life.

    • Hi,


      I don't mean the changeover.

      Tr AFAMA

      -> Choose depr. key

      -> Assignment of Calculation Methods

      -> Base method

      Here you can see "Treatment of end of depreciation"

      Depreciation after end of planned life and

      Derpeciaiton below zero


      On the other hand you wrote that you have defined a changeover method

      "5 Changeover after end of the useful life"

      I guess you have defined in the secoond or third phase a "complete depreciation". So anyway the system depreciation 100% after end of useful life and the settings in "Treatment of end of depreciation" are overruled.

      regards Bernhard
