Fixed Assets: change cost

This question is answered

Good day,

My client changed asset cost and chose the option to reset year. The depreciation has recalculated/adjusted  correctly and changes start in period 01-2011. However, I noted that cost has changed at period 03-2011 instead of the expected period 01. Can this be explained?

The averaging convention is set at full period.

 

Thanks,

RL

  • Hi,

    Do mean transaction representing the change in asset cost is visible under period 03-2011?

    When cost of an asset is changed the transaction is posted in the period up to which asset is already depreciated. So if the asset is already depreciated to 03-2011, change transaction (FACHG) is posted to period 03-2011.
