Split Asset Balance Sheet Account in Journal Entry by Assets

Scenario

  • You’re using SAP Business One 9.3 PL10, and using the Fixed Assets module
  • When execute Depreciation Run for the fixed assets classes, you want to get the Depreciation JEs being split by assets

Solution

From Modules > Administration > System Initialization > Document Settings > Per Document tab > Document: Depreciation Run > activate “Split Asset Balance Sheet Account in Journal Entry by Assets

When execute the Depreciation Run, this process will cause in posting multiple journal entries depending on the Asset Class number in the Depreciation Run window,
but this one has a shortcoming, in the remarks fields in the posted journal entry, doesn’t mention this depreciation expense to which asset number is belong to, just mentioning the Asset Class number in the Journal Entry, as showing below,

Hope this helps,

  • So glad you mentioned the shortcoming of not putting the asset number in the journal entry – its not a biggy because General Ledger is just that – General – a summarisation of the sub ledgers. I like knowing the ‘shortcomings’ (its not a shortcoming btw) so I can point these out and explain to customers who want it all.

    • Hi Tracey Neal-Gailer

      it depends on the perspective of using the data, in another word, how much you’re splitting your data, strenghing it with much details and organization in your database, it will help you with the reporting section even inside SAP B1 or by develping something outside it like any BI platforms,

      of course I recommend you that, follow the general scenario of working with the Fixed Assets, according to that you would implemented the the structure and it would help you whenever want to get statisctial and details as a result of your working,
