3040421 - Posted Goods and Service Receipt Not Resulting In The Creation of a Low-Value Fixed Asset

Symptom

Creation of a Purchase Order assigning a new Individual Material (IMAT) and you expect the corresponding Low-Value Fixed Asset be created automatically.

But when checking the Goods and Service Receipt, it's not possible to identify the Item Details from the new Low-Value Fixed Asset.

And if you go to the Fixed Asset view, it's not possible to find the Fixed Asset ID created either.

Environment

 SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Journal Entries -> Journal Entries view.
  3. Find the Journal Entry by searching with the Source Document ID for Goods and Service Receipt XXX (XXX represents the Goods Receipt ID).

Upon selecting the G/L Lines from the debit side of the Journal Entry, you can't find any Low-Value Fixed Asset ID in the Item Details.

Cause

The Product Category assigned for the Individual Material maintained in the Purchase Order is not assigned in the Fine-Tune setting on Fixed Asset Classes -> Asset Class Determination.

Resolution

Note that the Product Category maintained for the Purchase Order line item may be different than what you maintained for the Individual Material.

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Search and Select the line from the Purchase Order in question.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Navigate to Items tab and Account Assignment sub-tab.
  6. Double-click the Individual Material ID that is already maintained.
  7. Take note of the Product Category ID.

You must have maintained a Product Category during the Purchase Order's creation.

For this Product Category, you need to maintain the settings to assign it to the Asset Class.

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Click Open Activity List.
  4. Select the Fine-Tune tab.
  5. Search for Fixed Asset Classes.
  6. Click Open.
  7. Click Asset Class Determination.
  8. Maintain the settings for Company, Product Category and the Fixed Asset Class.
  9. Click Save.

If you create a Purchase Order, Goods Receipt, or Supplier Invoice with a Product Category for Fixed Assets, the system will be able to create the corresponding Low-Value Fixed Asset automatically.

For this, the system uses the Fixed Asset Class you have assigned here.
