Every asset transaction immediately causes a change of the forecasted
depreciation. However, it does not immediately cause an update of the
depreciation and value adjustment accounts for the balance sheet and profit and
loss statements. The planned depreciation is posted to the general ledger when
you run the periodic depreciation posting run. This posting run uses a batch
input session to post the planned depreciation for each posting level for each
individual asset as a lump sum amount.
The calculation and scheduling of depreciation, interest and revaluation are
automatically controlled by keys in the system, or you can control them manually
using a special posting transaction. In both cases, planned depreciation from
Asset Accounting must be periodically posted to the corresponding asset and
expense accounts of the general ledger. You carry out this posting using a batch
input session. In addition to the various depreciation types, interest and
revaluation, this batch input session also posts the allocation and writing off
of special reserves.
When the system posts depreciation, it creates collective documents. It does
not create separate documents for each asset.
Depreciation Posting Run is done via transaction code 'AFAB'.
The program creates batch input sessions for posting depreciation and
interest to the G/L accounts in Financial Accounting and/or to Controlling.
