Cost centre derivation in Asset Master

User is posting an asset.

This asset is attached to an employee number in HR.

In the asset maset Cost Centre is mandatory.

My doubt is:

Can we create an asset without giving a cost centre after changing the cost centre field optional ?

If we do not give a cost centre in the master records, for the purpose of depreciation posts, will the system derive the cost centre from the employee master record ?

    Value flow from asset master data is determined by two factors

    1...Financial accounting using Account determination as set in AO90 ..this posts to GL accounting

    2..Controlling using Cost centre or IO

    If you do not enter cost centre the depreciation will still be updated in GL but not in CO hence activity rate for the cost centre will not calculated . Turning PERNR in Asset master data will not derive the cost centre automatically into Asset master data since there is no such integrations between these two via PERNR. I hope this will help.
