2634971 - How to Calculate The Partial Transfer Value for a Fixed Asset Acquired in a Previous Fiscal Year

Symptom

You have acquired Fixed Asset XXX-X (XXX-X represents the Fixed Asset ID). The acquired amount represents a specific quantity of separate items, for instance 1000 storage boxes at a cost of A,AA LC per piece (A,AA represents the cost per piece; LC stands for Local Currency).
The Fixed Asset was acquired in Fiscal Year AAAA (AAAA represents the Fiscal Year of Acquisition). In the same fiscal year a part of the original quantity is sold, say, 100 pieces.
To achieve the partial sale you create a separate Fixed Asset BBB-B (BBB-B represents the ID of the new Fixed Asset) and then partially transfer the amount per piece to this new Fixed asset (100 x A,AA LC= Amount to be transferred), relating to 1-Current year, as the transfer is posted in the same year as the original acquisition.

In Fiscal Year BBBB (BBBB represents a Fiscal Year later than Fiscal Year AAAA) you need to sell a further amount/ quantity, say another 100 pieces, of Fixed Asset XXX-X.
Again, you create an additional Fixed Asset ZZZ-Z (ZZZ-Z represents the additional fixed asset ID).
However, as Fixed Asset XXX-X was already depreciated in different accounting periods.
You are wondering which cost per piece to use for the calculation of the partial transfer amount.
