Seasonal Depreciation - 1st year 50 %, 2nd 30% and 3rd 20% - only 4 months

Hello Guys,

I have a question regarding a depreciation key which has to be set up. I would be grateful for any reply from your side.

1. The fiscal year in the company code has 12 periods (Jan-Dez)

2. The asset shall only be depreciated 4 months per year (Jan, Feb, March and December)

3. The amount of depreciaction shall be:

a) 50% from the aquisition value in the first year

b) 30% from the aquisition value in the second year

c) 20% from the aquisition value in the third year

4. The depreciation posting shall only take place in the months Jan, Feb, March and December


An asset which is capitalized for 1000 Euro on the 01.06.2008 will start the depreciation on 01.12.2008 and the amount which has to be depreciated is 125 EUR.

Side caluculation:

I) 1000 * 50% = 500

II)500 / 4 = 125 EUR

My question would be if you have any idea how to set it up.

I have the correct assignments in the calendar assingment so the depreciation only takes place in those months. But the amount of what is being depreciated is always calculated wrong.

Refering to the example from above the depreciation in my case would start on 01.12.08 but the amount is only 1/12 from 500 and not the 125 EUR.

Thank you very much in advance for your reply.

Best wishes,
