asset retirement

hi when iam doing asset sale by f-92 dr customer dr asset sale and cr asset acccount then it is saying retire ment can be possible by only revenue element.

what it means?


in F-92 , you only entry this posting :

01 customer

50 sales fixed asset

Tick Field"asset retirement" (See how to show up this field on this ***), Enter Asset Information.

Afterwards, you have to simulate the document (Choose Menu Document => SImulate). System will create following journal automatically :

75 Asset

70 ACc. Depreciation

40 Clearing acct. revenue from asset sale

40/50 Gain/Loss from asset sale



In order to get the Field "asset retirement" show up when you enter Account "Sales Revenue" , Follow these steps :

  • Go to FS00, check the Field status group for this G/L Account.

  • Field Status group can be found in tab "Create/bank/interest".

  • Double click on the Field status group then choose Asset accounting group.

*You have to set "Asset retirement" into "Opt entry".

If it is set to "suppress" then you have to change it into "Opt Entry".

Change it in this path :

Go to Spro => Financial Accounting => General Ledger accounting => Bussiness transaction => G/L account posting => Make and check document settings => Define field status variant.
