1483480 - Manual Depreciation of Fixed Asset Is Not Permitted

Symptom

When you create a manual depreciation of a fixed asset, the system gives error message ‘Asset <xyz> val. view <abc>: Manual depreciation not permitted in calc. proc.’.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the 'Fixed Assets' work center, choose 'Fixed Assets' view.
  2. In the 'Fixed Assets' subview, select Fixed Asset <xyz>.
  3. Click on ‘Manual Posting’ and choose ‘Manual Depreciation’.
  4. In the 'Depreciation Type' field, enter either 1 Depreciation or 2 Special Depreciation.
  5. Enter the other required information.
  6. Click on ‘Simulate’.

      The system returns error message ‘Asset <xyz> val. view <abc>: Manual depreciation not permitted in calc. proc.’.

Cause

Generally, the system posts 1 Depreciation or 2 Special Depreciation automatically, and 3 Wite-downs can only be posted manually. The manual depreciation of 1 Depreciation or 2 Special Depreciation can only be posted if both of the two conditions are met:

  • The valuation view allows these depreciation types to be posted
  • The Depreciation Method maintained in the specified valuation view is 0000 No Automatic Depreciation or 0900 Manual Depreciation.

Since the Depreciation Method maintained is neither 0000 No Automatic Depreciation nor 0900 Manual Depreciation, it's not possible to post the manual depreciation of fixed asset <xyz> with depreciation type 1 Depreciation or 2 Special Depreciation.

Resolution

To successfully post the manual depreciation of fixed asset <xyz>, you have to change the deprecation type to 3 Write-Downs:

  1. In the 'Fixed Assets' work center, choose the 'Fixed Assets' view.
  2. In the 'Fixed Assets' subview, select Fixed Asset <xyz>.
  3. Click on ‘Manual Posting’ and choose ‘Manual Depreciation’.
  4. Enter the required information of ‘Header’ and ‘Set of Books’.
  5. Change the ‘Depreciation Type’ to 3 Wite down.
  6. Enter other required information and click on 'Post'.

      The manual depreciation of the fixed asset <xyz> should be posted successfully.
