Fixed assets | Fiscal depreciation

Dear all,

I have a challenge. I have a customer that has the following depreciation type

Value asset 600

Usefull life 3yrs

Salvage value % 10%

Fiscal depreciation 1/3 in first year

Remaining value to be depreciated during usefull life

So what I would like to achieve in the three year (assume activated on 1/1)


So in fact the 600 * 0.9 is the value to depreciate. As the asset will have a value of 60 end of life. Then the 540 (600*.9) is broken into two parts, 1/3 being 180 is immediatly written to P&L and the remaining 2/3 being 360 is divided by the # of months usefull life (3yrs * 12 = 36)

So when I activate I hit 180 to P&L

The remaining 360 makes 10 per month

The salvage value is 10% so 60 end of life.

Can this be done in SAP using one of the default methods (except manual)

Straight Line Method

Straight Line Period Control Method

Declining Balance Method

Multilevel Method

Immediate Write-Off Method

Special Depreciation Method
