How useful life is handled in SAP Business One Fixed Assets
In this blog I want to explain some scenarios that you can find when using SAP Business One Fixed Assets in a Monthly calculation system:
Why some times, you can see that in the year when the fixed asset ends it useful life, the number of periods with depreciation doesn’t match with the number of months shown in the remaining useful life displayed in the General tab in the fixed asset master data:
Why the depreciation calculation base ‘yearly’ or ‘monthly’ defined in the depreciation type can influence:
- On how the depreciation is distributed along the periods of depreciation in the fiscal year.
- On how the rounding of 2 decimals happens
- On how the rounding of Net Book Value happens (once a year or every month)
