Interest calulation method for asset accounting

Hi,

I have a problem with the calculation of depreciation and interest for a particular asset class. The assets are financial leases. The depreciation key defined is LEAS. The following are the attributes of this key:

Dep/int--

An example of an asset is:

Aquisition value: 1041552.71 (as migrated on 01.04.2007)

Ordinary dep already posted: 56243.88

Net book value: 985308.83

Scrap Value:729086.90

Useful life: 50 years

Expired useful life: 9 years 1 month

Remaining useful life: 40 years 11 months.

Depreciation start date: 28.03.1998

Interest calculation start date:30.03.1997

Depreciation calculated by the system:6261.83

Interest calculated in the year:15682.68

I'm not able to undersatnd on what basis the system calculated the interest. I will be thankful if anyone can help me resolve this. An early reply will be greatly appreciated as I'm facing major problems due to this issue.

Thank you in advance for the help,

Lakshmi
