Change of FY Variant from 4-4-5 to 5-4-4

Hi all,

We are considering changing the current FY variant from 4-4-5 to 5-4-4. (Obviously somebody sitting up there in Management thinks we are too free and have nothing to do). Anyway, I would like to request for advice or cautions on what will be the affect of this change.

Our current system is as follows;


Modules : FI (GL,AA, AP,AR)


SD, MM and also PP.

My main concern are actually Asset. How will this change affect the depreciation? retirement etc? I cant find any concrete documentation that give a good explanation on this or on the FY Variant change. Through OSS Note, I am able to find some info, but most of it will end up to consulting SAP SLO. (duh!)

Anybody who has got similar experience to share? Thanks.
