Asset Accounting Migration Strategy


All Exprts.

We are planning to G-Live on 1st April 2011. I am not aware for AA migration strategy. Could any one please tell me how to plan for successfull AA migration from Legacy to SAP AA.

Suppose :-

1 ) 1st April 2011 is live date then depreciation is posted in legacy upto 31.03.2011. So how this to considered ?

a ) E.g :- If asset acquired in 1997 with value Rs . 1000 and upto 31st March 2011 depreciation is 300 and on NBV of asset as on 31.03.2011 is 700. How to maintained this in AS91 ?

2 ) In India April to March is fiscal year so who to consider this point for AA Migration ?

3 ) Which date need to enter in Take Over Date ?

4 ) Do we need to post the depreciation after Go-Live ? ) ( Need Run AFAB ? )

5 ) All the depreciation mentained in AS91 is planned ? and to make it as posted do we need to post it trhough AFAB is it so ?

I have configured AA but not yet went to real Go-Live of AA so need an exprts focused guidance !

For all contributors thanks in advance ! Please provide some insights for AA Data Migration.

    Hi Sharvari

    If the go-live date is 01.04.2011, the asset is to be uploaded at the start of the financial year

    1. The asset transfer date that is to be maintained as 01.04.2011 in the config

    2. Secondly, the last posting period and last fiscal year to be maintained in the config is 012.2010

    3. Thirdly, from AS91, the legacy data is to be uploaded for the asset values upto 31.03.2010

    In the takeover values, the following data is to be uploaded:

    APC Values - XXXXX

    Accumulated Depreciation u2013 XXXXX (Value as on 31.03.2010)

    4. Then from OASV, update the financial values. The accounting entry will be

    Asset A/C......Dr

    Accumulated Depreciation A/

    Initial Upload A/C...Cr.

    5. Till this step, the income Tax Value is not updated, so for updating the income Tax values, transaction code AS82 is to be updated with values for Group assets

    The values are to be maintained, in the APC acquisition, accumulated depreciation, and in the transactions tab, the asset value date , transaction type and the values in the income tax depreciation area is to be updated.

    6. Once data is uploaded, from next month onwards you would run AFAB each month..

    • Hi Sharvari

      1. Yes, you maintain this in the same IMG path...

      You can have 31.03.2011 as the date, instead of 01.04.2011....

      2. You dont need to enter 300 in AS91... Reason being, your migration date is start of the year... just enter APC value and Accum dep as 300... You need not enter Depreciation amount

      This is tried and tested
