Revaluation of fixed assets with post back accumilated dep on assets.

We have a requirement to reevaluate the fixed asset after acquisition to change the NBV to the new FMV and zero out the accumulated depreciation on the assets.

Without effecting tax depreciation areas.

To post the revaluation on depreciation area 01, I customized the following steps for depreciation area 01

  1. 1.(OADB) in the dep area 01 mark fields,revaluation,transfer of reserve and rev ord dep as all values allowed.

    2.(OAYR)in specify interval and posting rule mark revaluation button on.

    3. (AO90) assign the gl account in the asset classes which have to be revalued in assign g/l accounts area.

    4. (AUFW) if going for one time rev .give separate rev define rev measure screen.

    5. Posted revaluation in abaw.
  2. ABAW - I am testing this with few assets first I posted Revaluation on cost only of 2000,

Before revaluation the depreciation was =4910/24 months – 204 monthly depreciation

When I used asset value dates as of 1/31/2012 the dep was $44 for the month of Feb

And then from march the Nov it calculates right

For December again it is trying to catch up the depreciation to the yearly depreciation value based on the old netbook value.

  1. 3. Since we also have to post back the accumulated depreciation on the assets, I made another test

In the first step I posted revaluation for accumulated ordinary depreciation for previous year and current year.

In the second step I posted revaluation on the cost using the same asset value dates and the issue is again with the monthly depreciation

For the month of revaluation posting the depreciation is off and following month through Nov the depreciation is correctly calculated based the FM after revaluation

For December system is trying to catch up the depreciation based on the yearly depreciation of previous net book value.

I am expecting the monthly depreciation to be calculated based on the Net book value after revaluation and useful life remaining on the asset

Please advise how I can achieve this.

Thanks for your help

    Hi, Kris.

    SAP always calculates the planned depreciation for the year and on the basis of the annual planned depreciation calculates monthly (or quarterly or half-yearly) depreciation. Therefore, the total depreciation (in the first case) still shows by system in the amount of 204.6 * 12.

    Why do not you use a new valuation - the transaction AR29N (program RAAUFW02). It realized the possibility of a net method. There is a special BADI (Business Add-In).

      Another question : I have a situation where I have to post revaluation with Asset value date of last year

      however with AR29 the system is checking the last depreciation posted for the period and posting depreciation in the last open period which is Oct'12, Is there a way to post revaluation with the asset value date of last year Aug '11 so the depreciation is catch up from last year and post the adjusted value in the next open period Nov'12

      Please advise.

      Thank you for your help!
