Mid year Asset takeover in Short Fiscal Year

Hi Colleagues,

My customer is operating in a short fiscal year because of a recent merger. They need to bring in some Intangible Assets that they have managed outside of the Fixed Asset module.

The capitalization date of the assets are 3/1/08 and 4/1/08;

these dates represent period 3 and 4 of FY 2008. The 2008 fiscal year ended 6/28/08; FY2009 began 6/29/08, so they have manually posted 3 months of amortization in 2009. I have set the legacy transfer (takeover date) to 6/28/08; and the current period in which depreciation was posted to period (3), FY 2009.

My intent was to be able to post the APC values and the Accum

Depreciation thru 6/28/2008 and the current y-t-d depreciation in the Transaction tab. However, the Transaction Tab is greyed out and I can not post the y-t-d depreciation.

I sure you can post the last closed year Accum Depr and the

Y-T-D depreciation, what did I miss in my configuration setting described above.

Best Regards

Hello Robert,

I would like to recommend you as follows:

Possibility 1 (my favourite):

1. Remove entry in current period dep. posted.

2. Enter APC and ACCUM per 29.06.2008 in as91/as92

2. The system calculates the depr. 2009 automatically

3. Cancel the manual postings and execute depreciation run.

Possibility 2:

1. Change legacy transfer date to 09/29/2009 (i assume.....)

2. Entry in current period dep. posted is 03.2009

3. Enter APC, ***. dep and depreciation of current year in as91/as92

4. FY2009 began 6/29/08,

Hope, it's helpfull.

Best regards
