How to stop Depreciation for some assets & start again.

Dear Friends,

We have a requirement where we have to stop Depreciation for some assets as they are not in use and again post depreciation when they put in use.

For ex: Asset Value is 10,000 and monthly Depreciation is 100. Asset has been depreciated for first 6 periods in year with 100 each in every month & we want to stop depreciation for coming 3 months and post depreciation when they put in use. Asset should not be depreciated when they are not in use and calculate regular 100 if we run depreciation again if we put in use. So total Depreciation of the asset for the year should be 900 (First 6 Months & last 3 months).

Please explain step by step process to do this and your kind cooperation to solve this issue is highly appreciated.

Points will be rewarded for sure if my problem solves.

Thanks & Regards,

Naveen Kumar.

    Use shutdown functionality at depreciation key and at asset master data.

    Select YES to shutdown at depreciation key and selecyt periods for shutdown for your asset master data.

    Remember if you use shutdown, the useful life will be increased to that extent

    • Go to AS03 Asset Master/Dep tab and observe the dep key

      Goto AFAMA and select that dep key and click on assignment of calculation methods

      You can see last row for shutdown field and select YES

      Go to asset master at AS02/Time dependent data and select shutdown check box and enter period

      If shutdown check box is not available goto as03 and goto menu environment-screen layout and master data and identify the screen layout number

      Go to SPRO-Financial Accounting (New)-Asset Accounting-Master Data-Screen Layout-Define Screen Layout for Asset Master Data-Define Screen Layout for Asset Master Data-

      Select your screen layout and click on logical field groups and select 3 (Time dependent data) and click on field group rules and make shutdown field as optional.

      This will allow you to change the shutdownfield asset master data.

    Dear Srinivas,

    If we put select the Shutdown Option in depreciation key through AFAMA, I guess for the other assets which have same depreciation key system doen't calculate depreciation. For Ex: Dep Key assigned to 100 assets i want to shut down only 20 assets. For Remaining 80 assets there shoould be no changes.

    Please explain if we put shutdown option for Dep Key it will effect all the assets or not?

    Thanks & Regards,

    Naveen Kumar.

    Dear Srinivas,

    Thank you so much for all your support.

    We don't need to re-run the AFAB (Dep) again for backdated depreciation adjustment. When we give backdated Interval and activate Shutdown indicator system is reversing all the values from that period and adjusting in Current period.

    I am also trying other scenarios and revert back if any issues come.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Naveen Kumar.
