Scenario: New change capitalization on date from present date to past date and re-calculate the depreciation which will post  remaining depreciation on 13th month.

For example:

•Capitalized on  new (Past) date:       06/30/2012

•Capitalized on  old(present) date:     11/30/2012

Prerequisites:

   1. Go to OA02 – substitutions in Mass change.

   2. Again go to OA02 and enter your substitution and save

   3. Go to AS02 and Enter the New capitalization on date in Ordered on Field for all selected assets for  temporary purpose,

       later need to delete the  Ordered on date,  once  change to new capitalization date

   4. Go to AR01 T code  – Call Asset List

   5. AR31 – Edit Work list.

   6. Enter the work list number which is already created in AR01 T. Code and enter the parameters like above.

   7. T code: AS02 to change Asset     Note: Check whether new capitalization change or not,

       if yes and remove the Dates at Ordered on field for all selected assets.

   8. Run the Depreciation  – AFAB

   9. Final we can run the t code AW01N to see Test results for selected assets.

Proposed Solution to business:


Based on requirement, we cannot change Capitalized on date in asset master and it will not allowed changing the same.

So based on that, I have Proposed Solution to business through substitutions and I have run Successful thorough Substitutions.

                      Remove the Test run check box, select the List assets, click on execute in background and complete the steps

                      9. Final we can ring the following t code to see Test results for selected assets

                       Asset Explorer – AW01N

    Good Document Vamsi.

    What happens to the value of depreciation which is already being posted?

    Example: If the capitalization date 01.01.2013 and we have run the depreciation for 3 months and now we are changing the capitalization date to 01.04.2013. – how will the system behave in this case? it is possible?

    I’m not sure this is a good solution.  There is a reason why it doesn’t let you change the capitalization date after the asset has been posted to and that is that there must be consistency between the FI posting and the asset’s capitalization date.  You’ve found an interesting backdoor but this isn’t the right way to deal with this issue.  Just do a transfer.

      HI Nathan,

      Thanks for comments…………

      Since business user want keep actual capitalization date as per the actual acquisition and if change capitalization date as per the actual acquisition. And we have changed the ordinary Depreciation date as per new Capitalization date then we should run Depreciation ,after that system will create FI document aswell as asset difference  for in-consistency amount.

      And also this issue happen almost 1 year back…..so for we did not receive any concerns from business……..

      Even we have run the FI and Asset report and wedidnot get any inconsistency in the amount

      Can you please tell me..what is the necessary to transfer balance and which amount we need to transfer and how! kidly advise.

      Thank you very much….

      Regards

        For starters, the capitalization date doesn’t influence the calculation of depreciation.  If you want to have the asset depreciate as if it were purchased in June, then just set the depreciation start date to June.  You don’t need to change the capitalization date.

        The capitalization date was most likely (there are exceptions) automatically populated based on the FI posting to the asset.  That was in November.  How much sense does it make if you make the posting in November… i.e, the entry is financially recognizable in November, but the asset is recognized and should be on the books as of June.?  That requirement makes no sense to me.  If they want it to post in June, then reverse the posting, close out the asset, and re-do it correctly in June.
