Fixed Assets - Calc of monthly depreciation charge after GRIR clearing

Hi all,
For a particular asset in our company - this asset was to be written off in November 2005.
GRIR clearing was done on asset xxx in September and then reversed in the same month.
The net effect on the asset value was zero but this caused SAP to recalculate the depreciation charge from the start of the year. It appears to have ignored the reversal and wants to write back amount x(months Jan to Aug) and charge amount y(chg for Sep).  Also for some reason this has appeared in November and not September, the month of posting the GRIR clearing.
The asset in question should have reached the end of it's useful life in November but the re-calculation of depreciation would have resulted in depreciation being charged for a further 7 months in 2006. The manual work around was to change the depreciation key to xxxx to force SAP to calculate the "expected" charge for November. This has worked in this particular instance but is not ideal, running depreciation run again is not the solution to this type of problem.  
User wants to know if using the MR11 transaction (GRIR reversal for PO)will always cause SAP to re-calculate depreciation from the start of the year.
Sorry for long post - have tried to give as many details as possible.
Any ideas / comments  /thoughts - please do reply
Many thanks in advance

  • Oracle Fixed Assets API for updating depreciation flag after conversion

    Hi frnds,
    Do we have any API's or update program to update the depreciation flag after asset conversion. We are converting all the legacy assets from 11.0.3 to r12 with a depreciation default flag of 'N' since depreciation is already calculated in 11.0.3 and we don't want to calculate any depreciation when we run our year end depreciation in R12. But anyhow at a later point we need to update the depreciation flag to the original value that of 11.0.3 in r12, so can you please help me if there is any API or standard program to update the depreciation flag.

    Welcome to the forums !

    I don't think I understand exactly what the ask is. What field allows you to distinguish between prior year and current depreciation? TRANSTYPE?
    I think your data is fine. I would suggest using a Matrix instead of a table. Just set the column group to group on the field that distinguishes between current and prior year depreciation. Add all of the rest of your column outside the column group so they
    are only scoped by your row group(s). You can add those columns either before or after your column group columns.
    If you have a lot of work into your report already and don't want to create a new matrix which will require you to recreate the work already done on your table. you can convert the existing table to a matrix as described in this technet wiki article:

  • Fixed Assets - Exchange rate for Depreciation in R12 Secondary Ledger

    We are implementing dual ledgers in R12. The Primary Ledger (PL) is in CAD but Secondary Ledger (SL) is in USD. There's only one Depreciation Book in Fixed Assets pointing to the PL.
    The problem lies in accounting for Depreciation in the SL. The system is picking up the exchange rate of the date when Depreciation is run and not the historical rate (rate when adding the asset).
    We have a SR open with Oracle Support and they have escalated this to Development. However, we need a Plan B in case we've actually hit a bug. Could we extend Subledger Accounting for the Depreciation Accounting Entry in Secondary Ledger to take the historical rate instead of the rate from the Depreciation run date?

    Will use Reporting Ledger tied to Primary.

  • Fixed assets depreciation; Message no. AU 390

    Dear Sirs,
    recently when we're accessing a fixed asset by using the fixed assets browser ( AW01N) we’re getting the following message: “<i>Values for Ordinary deprec. have changed in dep. area 40 in fiscal year 2007</i>”. By following the message’s suggestion we’re trying to re-calculate the depreciation of the specific fixed asset (for the specific depreciation area) by using the AFAR.
    However, although during the simulation (test run) it seems that the fixed asset’s depreciation is being recalculated, without the test run flag we’re getting the following result:
    <i>22.03.2007                                            Recalculate Depreciation                                            1
    Selection not allowed in production run - program termination

        Totaling                                No asset found

    Can you please advice us of the above? Is it possible (although it is just an information message) that this may affect us in future time (e.g. end of year process)?
    Thank you in advance for your response.
    Kind regards

       In a Production run AFAR does not allow a restriction of the assets.
    If you only want to recalulate a single asset, use AS02 and select "Recalulate values" from the Menu.
    Kind regards

  • How to import Fixed Asset Master File

    Hi all expert,
    I used BAMasterDataImportFile to import the Fixed Asset. But the message as below appear :
    "Import end;Number of successfully imported assets: 0;Number of processed assets:2"
    After complete import the fixed asset master files still empty. May i know anybody can advise me for import fixed asset files?
    Thank for help.
    Eric Tan

    Hi Eric,
    Please refer your error with the possible reasons below (from SAP notes):
    Error message: "Import End; Number of imported assets:0; Number of processed asset:2"
    Reason: Note that there is no error. It is usually because of the conflict of Depr. Start Date , Use Life and Remaining Life.
    The following is a list of possible errors:
    1. Fixed Asset in Production Mode -- Make sure Fixed Asset is in Transfer mode before importing.
    2. The number of semicolons for each line is not 66 -- For each line, each field must be separated by a semicolon(, the number of separators( should be 66.  Number( = 66.
    3. Wrong Date Format DD-MM-YYYY or MM-DD-YYYY -- The correct date formats should be : YYYYMMDD, YYYY-MM-DD, YYYY.MM.DD or YYYY/MM/DD
    4. Asset Class unavailable -- The asset class in your csv file does not exist in Fixed Assets; make sure the used asset classes are defined in Fixed Assets before importing.
    5. Depr. Type unavailable -- The given depreciation type does not exist in Fixed Assets, make sure the used depreciation type is defined in Fixed Assets before importing.
    6. Depr. Area unavailable -- You entered data for a depreciation area that does not exist. If there are only 2 depreciation areas in Fixed Assets do not enter data for area 3 or 4.
    7. Depr. Area is inactive for asset class  -- You entered data in the csv file for an area that is not active for the given class in Fixed Assets.
    8. Life parameter is negative or the remaining life is greater than planned life -- All life parameters should be positive, the remaining life should be less than the planned life
    Life Parameters(Depr. Start Date, Useful Life and Remaining Life) are mathematically incorrect for one of the areas in csv. Remaining life = Useful life - (the difference between the first date of import year and depreciation start date). Note that it is not the difference between import date(the date you import Fixed Asset Master Data) and depreciation start date. You must calculate the remaining life correctly. For example, you want to import an asset in 2005, you import it on 2005-09-01 ,then the first date of the import year is 2005-01-01, Depr. Start Date = 2003-06-01, Useful Life = 60 months, then
          Remaining Life = 60 - (2005-01-01 - 2003-06-01) = 60 - 19 = 41 months.
          The following calculation is wrong:
          Remaining Life = 60 - (2005-09-01 - 2003-06-01) = 60 - 27 = 33 months
    Import Fixed Asset for the current fiscal year -- The fixed asset master data import function is designed for legacy data importing. We recommend you to import fixed asset master in the past years. If you insist on importing an asset for the current fiscal year, make sure the depreciation start date is the first date of current fiscal year and the Remaining Life is the same as the Useful Life.
    Year Values -- the sum of the accumulated depreciation (planned, unplanned and special depreciation) in the csv file is greater than the acquistion and production costs.
    Also, don't forget to change the fixed asset mode to transfer. Administration>System initialization>Company Details> Basic initialization tab.
    Hope this helps.

  • How to get historical currency rate for second group currency transactions in Fixed Assets

    My client had MXN (Mexico Currency) as a legal currency and when the company code was implemented (went live) group currency was not implemented. After 3 years this company code implemented second local currency as USD and is now a USD functional Company. When Fixed assets movements such as depreciation, retirement etc are posted; the postings in local currency is fine but postings in group currency is not fine the reason is the exchange rate for group currency must be 'historical rate" but instead of that the entries are being posted in "current rate". To rectify this issue we need to set the exchange rate as the historical rate. Now my question is where/how can I get the historical rate (rate when asset was acquired/purchased). When the assets were acquired the amount was in MXN and there was no maintenance of USD exchange rate as there was no second local currency so then how can I get the historical exchange rate for USD. Most of the assets were acquired/purchased before 5-10 years then how can I find the USD exchange rate for those periods.

    It is necessary yo have a different rate type for average. The month-end rate type cannot be used.
    The M-rate type is typically the month-end rate.

    Edited by: user1076895 on 21/07/2010 06:22 PM

    Well, what version of EBS are you on? I ask because in R12 Oracle has come out with a new module called Oracle Asset Tracking. This new module has some integration to Oracle Projects. We are still on EBS 11i, so have no personal experience with this new module. Since this is a new module, I suspect very few Oracle customers are using it so far. If you are on EBS 12, you might want to investigate this. I certainly will not say this is something that will work for your specific requirements.
    For us, it does not help us. Oracle certainly has a deficiency in its ERP software in that it lacks any kind of equipment billing/equipment accounting module. I can tell you what we are doing. Our prior (to Oracle) ERP software had a pretty decent Equipment Billing/Accounting module. Was not perfect, but it worked pretty well. We could charge jobs for rental equipment by the day, week, or month. We could sell our jobs consumable materials through the order processing capability. We went live on Oracle on January 1, 2008 (talk about a painful process). We are still using our old ERP software to do our equipment cost and revenue processing. We extract on a monthly basis (billing done at end of month) the cost and revenue charges for the month into an Excel Spreadsheet and then load that spreadsheet into Oracle, going into expenditure batches. The expenditure type is USG (usage) and we have various non-labor resource values used, depending on the location (we have warehouses/yards in a couple of different U.S. cities).
    We are still looking for a replacement for the old ERP software. Any such replacement would be non-Oracle software. So we would still need to interface that software to Oracle Project Costing.
    In the old software, the equipment master was separate from the assets master. But certainly for many of the equipment items, they would also be an asset and getting depreciated (for example, a construction crane, that we would rent to jobs, and since own would be an asset that we would depreciate).
    Why don't you ask your Oracle sales rep what he would recommend? Would be interesting to see what he tells you.

  • Fixed Asset import - Life Parameter

    Hi All.
    I'm attempting to import legacy fixed assets. In the log file I am getting a Life Parameter error.
    Can you please check my logic and / or correct me.
    End of Financial Year is 30/06/09 (2009-06-01) . Useful life = 48 months. Depreciation start date = 2009-07-01
    I am attempting to upload a remaining life of 47 months
    Capitalisation date = 2009-06-01
    Depreciation Start Date = 2009-07-01
    Remaining Life = 47
    Have I got this right? Anyone have any ideas on what could be the issue?

    The import functionality is mainly designed to import legacy data , meaning that user wants to have start of fiscal year values of a fixed assets with capitalisation-start depreciation date in a year earlier than fiscal year of the import
    In your scenario, the Fiscal year of start depreciation is 2009 and you want to import values at start fiscal year of 2009, logically this
    means that start depreciation date is not earlier than first day of fiscal year 2009, so the reamining useful life must be equal to total useful life.
    For acquisitions in current fiscal year I would recommend to use the module 'adquisition' rather than import
    I stronlgly recommend to visit in SAP Channel portal, Business One, SELF-HELP & LIBRARY, Financial Add-ons: There, under root cause , there is one item dedicated to Fixed assets problems and in particular to import processes.

  • Changing Fixed Assets useful life according IAS rules

    Hi all,
    According to the new IAS rules (International Accounting Standards) when an asset's useful life (currently with straight line depreciation) is changed we have to distribute the "net book value" (remaining depreciation to be posted) between all the remaining months in the same proportion.
    Currently, SAP standard calculates the depreciation as the difference between the posted depreciation throughout the previous months and the amount that should have been depreciated with the new useful life, and it assigns this calculated amount in the current month when the useful life is changed.
    We have checked that the remaining depreciation to be posted can be distributed equally over the remaining periods of the fiscal year by marking the "smoothing" flag through transaction OAYR per company code, but we need this amount to be distributed over all the remaining periods for the new useful life (not only over the current fiscal year).
    Please find below an example to try to clarify my query:
    A fixed asset with str.line depreciation has the following values:
    Acquisition value: 12000 eur
    Useful life: 3 years
    Depreciation per year: 4000 eur.
    The asset starts to depreciate on 01.01.2008 and its useful life is
    changed to 2 years on 01.07.2008. On that moment the net book value is
    10000 eur.
    SAP adjusts the difference between the amount that should have been
    depreciated with the new useful life (3.000 eur) and the real amount
    posted (2.000 eur) = 1.000 eur depending on the "smoothing" flag:
    1. If the flag is not marked: SAP assigns 1.500 eur (500 eur (6.000/12)
    + 1.000 eur from the difference) on 01.07.2008
    2. If the flag is marked: SAP distributes the difference between the
    remaining periods of the current year (from July to December) and it
    assigns 666,66 eur per month (500 eur + 166,66, obtained from 1.000
    eur/6 months).
    But we need the same depreciation amount distributed over the remaining
    months: 10.000 eur/18 months = 555,55 eur/month.
    Has anyone come through the same problem before?
    The only solution I can think of is transferring the asset values to a new one. Or maybe a user exit.
    Any feedback will be much appreciated.
    Thank you very much in advance. Best regards

    Hi Markus,
    Sorry to come back to you regarding this question. Unfortunately we are not still on 6.0 so we can't take advantage of the new functionality.
    I am now trying to make an asset transfer through transaction ABUMN but the new asset is taking into account the capitalisation value of the original asset rather than the net book value that we would need the system to consider to calculate the new depreciation values.
    Do you know if there is a way to solve this?
    Thanks a lot. Best regards

    GL looks good but not in Fixed assets- Is there a process we can review or
    find more information on it

    I am pasting my comments next to yours :
    These are the issues that needs to be resolved:
    • Depreciated balance are over stated in Fixed Assets and needs to be adjusted to reflect what is in GL. => I wasn't sure how this was was possible, since I  assumed that your Asset depreciation journals in GL were being fed from FA. So if depreciation was thought to be incorrect in FA, its corresponding balance in GL should've been incorrect as well. But I guess that's not the case because your other questions imply that some of these assets were acquired and their might have been some conversion activity involved.
    • Fixed Assets mass additions are selecting GL accounts that should not be selected. We need to know how to change the criteria for selection. +=> Check the Asset Clearing and CIP clearing accounts on your asset categories+
    • We need to learn the proper way to convert assets we acquired from acquisition into our Oracle Fixed Assets system, so that depreciation start at the time we acquire the assets. => That is correct, you could change your original date placed in service to the acquisition date as part of conversion and if you have the correct prorate convention, they should depreciate the way you want it to.

  • Fixed Assets Add-On: Depreciation Calculation After Credit Memo

    In the beginning of the year, I have a fixed asset as follow:
    Cost $16,128,667.00
    NBV $14,515,800.35
    Planned Useful Life for this asset is 120 months.
    In July this year, created a Fixed Asset Credit Memo for this asset at $1,110,942.92.
    Originally, before the credit memo, the planned depreciation is $134,405.53 per month which is correct.
    After the credit memo, it recalculates the planned depreciation to $124,119.04 per month. How did the system arrive at this figure?
    Depreciation method:
    Straight line
    Full Year

    Based on NBV $14,515,800.35, minus Credit Memo $1,110,942.92, you got $13,404,856.43. The useful life is 108 based on NBV. So you get new planned depreciation to $124,119.04 per month.
