Asset Upload and Capitalization

Hi experts,

Need your experience and resposnse for the below issue.

After going thru forum details still I need to get clarification on the following asset load from legacy

The assets are as old as 1980 to 1990 and the transfer date is May 2008. So many assets crossed the useful life and the book value is 0 but the tax value are there .( Fiscal year variant in Company code ad Asset are same but not following calendar year.)

In AS 91 when tried to enter the Capitalization date as 1990 it looks for Fiscal year and error out as variant not maintained for 1990 (In company code FY variant is maintained only from 2007 .)

If I enter transfer date (2008) as capitalization date then the expired useful life calculation is not correct.

Can I change the capitalization date after loading the asset data. What will be the implications.

In AS91 the asset acqusition value has to be enetered as Postive or negative amount.

When to use OASV is after upload and the restting the asset GL account as Recon account ( Under production startup Menu) .

Standard you use the fiscal variant from FI but it is possible to assign a different fiscal year to a depreciation area.

Transaction SPRO:

Financial Accounting / Asset Accounting / Valuation / Fiscal Year /Fiscal YearVariants

- Specify Other Versions on Company Code Level

- Specify Other Versions on Depreciation Area Level

When the fiscal year in asset accounting in asset accounting is the same as in FI don't fill this in.

The assignment in FI you can see with OB37

To change the fiscal year variant with OB29

When you fill in the asset the capitalization date then based on the depreciation key the depreciation start date is filled in and use full live is calculated. But when you change the depreciation start date the use full live is not recalculated. That is the reason that I make it blanc so that SAP can recalculate it based on the fiscal year variant.
