Down payment in fixed asset


I want to configure the recording of down payment on asset (F-48) where when down payment will be made asset will be debited and down payment on asset clearing account will be credited. I found out that there we need to do configuration in OAYB i.e. inclusion of asset class in transaction type group. Another configuration we need to do in AO85 or AO90 ie assigning of GL accounts in account determination. But still i am not able create line items for posting to asset and down payment clearing account. Entry is posted with Vendor account dr. and bank account cr. but additional line items that is asset account dr. to asset down payment clearing.

Is there anything i need to configure in addition to OAYB & AO90.

Thanks & Regards

    Hi Dhananjay

    First of all, it is advisable not to update the Asset Down payment to Assets.. Because, once you post GR and there is a time lag/delay in posting the invoice, the depreciation would be calculated on Down payment amount + Asset value....

    However, once you do the Invoice processing, the DP would get reversed and the depreciation would get adjusted in the next period... however, you will have excess depreciation posted in one month and adjustment in the Other...

    Now coming to your issue, if you still want to do it, check

    1. If Asset No is not suppressed in the Field Status Group of Vendor recon account

    2. Check OBA5 is Message No F5 378 is suppressed...

    3. Assign GL accounts in AO90 for Down payment clearing

    4. Mention the Purchase order No in F-47 (Down Payment Request) and then do payment from in F-48.. OR mention the asset no in F-48 directly in order to post to the asset
