Asset Impairment with Revaluating Depreciation in ECC6

Asset Impairment with Revaluating Depreciation in ECC6

  • Till now we have used the impairment process which we used to use before upgrading to ECC6. In this process, if we have made impairment during the fiscal year, that impairment value will be ignored by SAP for calculating the ordinary depreciation for the remaining months of that particular year. Therefore, we would see the difference between systems posted ordinary depreciation and expected to be posted depreciation.
  • We can use the following new impairment functionality in SAP ECC 6.0 – EHP5.
  • We will find impairment option in AR01 worklist.
  • We have made two Transaction Types ZUP and ZDN for impairments by re-valuating depreciation.
  • System will post to impairment accounts configured in AO90 for revaluation of APC or DEP during depreciation run.
  • Most of the times we will use impairments by revaluating depreciation compare to reduction of APC.
  • No need to create additional depreciation areas for impairment. We can activate revaluation function in required depreciation areas and create custom transaction types based accounting principle like impairment IFRS/GAAP only.


Create Transaction Type ZUP and ZDN under Revaluation in SPRO and limit these Transaction Types into Book Depreciation only.
